I had a stressful day of wedding planning, and needed to bake! There is nothing more relaxing to me – then putting on a good show/or some music, and experimenting in the kitchen. Here is my super simple granola recipe with a twist!
Apple Pie Spiced Granola
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup nuts walnuts
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1.5 tsp apple pie spice cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice
- heavy pinch salt
Preheat your oven to 350F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add oats, nuts, chia seeds, apple pie spice, and a large pinch of salt to a bowl.
Add maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla into the bowl, and mix well.
Spread granola on the baking sheet, and pop it in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until it looks slightly browned.
Pull it out of the oven, and allow the granola to cool for 30 minutes.
Mix in other additions (like dried apple slices or coconut chips) and store in an air-tight container (for up to a month). I like to refrigerate it to keep it extra fresh!
