Here is it. The famous, (well at my yoga classes anyway) the delicious, APPLE CINNAMON GRANOLA !
Granola is a staple in my kitchen. I always have to have a jar of it otherwise my kitchen feels naked, (same goes for my seed crackers). This is my go to breakfast, topping and snack.
Warning : It granola is very, very moorish. Like pour the amount you are going to eat and then lock the granola in a cupboard moorish ツ
This is super quick to make, especially when you’ve made it a couple of times. Plus your kitchen will smell amazing for a couple of hours. And most importantly you get to eat it for the next week… if it lasts that long 😉
I adore the combination of apple and cinnamon, they are just meant to be together. The applesauce means that the mixture is quite moist so it needs a lot less oil added than other granola recipes. It also adds sweetness which means you need less sweetener. Annndddd it helps form the most beautiful little clusters. Yay for applesauce!
My favourite ways to enjoy granola:
- With plant based milk, coconut yoghurt and fresh berries
- On top of smoothies or chia pudding
- By itself, those clusters ❤
