Apple Pie Granola Recipe

I've been playing around with granola recipes for a while, looking for high nutrition and low calories, but also great taste!  There have been about four fails so far, but thankfully, we can eat just about anything so nothing has been wasted.

This recipe though...




Mmmmm...  This one is not a fail!  ;-) 

High protein, no processed sugar or flour.  Well, except for the coconut.  When I got home and realized the bag was sweetened coconut,  GAH!  I used it anyway.  Another trip to the grocery store was not happening on that particular day!

Apple Pie Granola Bars

1/2 cup old fashion oats
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 eggs
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup sweetened coconut
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 Granny Smith Apple, chopped {minus one slice because, ya know, I ate it}
enough lemon juice to cover apple
1 heaping tablespoon chia seeds
1 heaping tablespoon flax seeds
1 heaping tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt


Does anyone else smile when their kitchen gadget matches one of their ingredients?  ;-)


Stir together all wet ingredients, then all dry ingredients.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.  Enjoy!
