Apple sauce granola Recipe
Apple sauce granola
We all love the pumpkin granola recipe Jeanne made awhile back as a guest blogger here... now I've got an apple sauce version for you... which is perfect since I can't find any pumpkin around here!! BOOO!!!! I thought this pumpkin shortage was over?? Why are we only getting hit now??
Well either way, I love this new recipe, and another great thing is it uses agave to sweeten it... this seems to have made it a little more susceptible to burning... so watch this batch with a closer eye than normal! John called me and I went gabbing away... when all the sudden I remembered... THE GRANOLA!!! OK honey... gotta go... no not in a second.. NOW! I got it just in the nick of time... another minute and this would have been charcoal! That would have been sad, sad indeed.
I plopped some into a mason jar for pictures... but truthfully this would make a lovely gift... you hear that extended family... guess what you're all getting next year :D (did I mention almost everyone on my christmas list got jam this year?? fun right :) )
- OK onto the granola, as always, mix it up with whatever you have on hand, it's more fun that way :)
- Apple sauce granola
- by steph chows
- Toss together in a large bowl:
- 4 cups old fashion oats
- 2 cups corn puffs
- 2 cups kamut puffs (i find the corn and kamut puffs in the organic section of my grocery store)
- 1 cup sunflower seeds (unsalted)
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- Stir together in a small bowl
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup apple sauce (all natural)
- 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup agave nectar
Add wet to dry and toss until everything is coated. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet so there is a thin layer. Bake at 325 and toss around every 10 minutes. If you like larger granola chunks toss more gently and don't break up the chunks... like small chunks... break things up a bit as you toss them around :D Let cool fully and then add in dried fruit to taste.
I normally mix in the dried fruit as I eat it, that way I can change it up depending on how I feel!
