An easy apple cinnamon granola full of the classic flavor combination! Perfect for breakfast or snacking all season long while keeping things healthy, gluten-free, and vegan!
Boy do I have a treat for you! As I mentioned on Monday, I made some granola over the weekend. This was my third time making homemade granola and my second recipe. I just winged it as usual using some new ingredients I had picked up at the grocery and low and behold, it came out pretty damn good! Granola is such a fun and easy snack or can be made into a very satisfying breakfast. When you make it yourself you control what you want to put in and just how healthy you want it. No sodium and processed sugar here! Just good old healthy whole grains, fats, and flavor. Nothing artificial, just real clean food, just what I like!
I am glad that I have been able to slowly add little amounts of oats back in to my diet (certified gluten-free of course). I still have to watch out though and can really only enjoy them about two times a week. But hey, that is better than nothing!
Yea, I know, you are looking at these photos like..”Wow, she stepped up her game!” Well at least I hope you are! Since my dad finally took out my AC, I have my favorite photo spot back! It is the natural light from that one window in my room which is on the wall that my bed is against. It can get a bit annoying because it isn’t a hard surface, but I some how usually make it work. Of course I still have not the best lighting because of the early nights (damn you winter!), but in the summer that is my sweet spot!
Apple Cinnamon Granola
- Preheat the oven to 325°F.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, millet, apple, cinnamon, nutmeg, hemp, and flax, then give it a good stir. Next add all the wet ingredients (apple sauce, vanilla, and stevia), give it another good mix so everything is evenly coated.
- Using a Silpat or line a baking sheet with foil and lightly wipe some oil or non-stick spray down. Then evenly spread the granola on the sheet for equal baking.
- Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
- Allow it to cool completely before you store it in am air tight container. Enjoy!
So tell me:
Do you like nutty granola or more fruity ones? I don’t really mind, but I don’t like ones that are filled with dried fruit. My one essential condition is that it is not too sweet, that is why I like making my own.
Do you have a photography sweet spot?
