2 cups of rolled oats
2 cups of puffed red wheat cereal
1 cups of chopped walnuts
2 cups of dried apple rings, chopped
2 TBS of brown sugar
1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
3 TBS of cinnamon
1 TBS of apple spice
1 TBS of canola oil
1 TBS of honey
1/4 cup of almonds, chopped or slivered
Preheat oven to 300 degrees
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil.
In a large mixing bowl, add the rolled oats, puffed rice, walnut and almonds. Mix and set aside.
In a small sauce pan, over medium heat, at the canola oil, apple sauce, brown sugar, cinnamon and apple spice. Stir and let it get to a boil. Remove from the heat, then pour over the oats/nuts mixture. Stir it, making sure it’s evenly mixed. Sprinkle in a little more cinnamon. Pour the mixture onto the cookie sheet and spread evenly.
Bake in the oven for 12 minutes. Using a spatula, stir the mixture, turning it over. Then bake for an additional 12 minutes and remove from the oven.
In a small bowl, add the chopped apple rings, the honey, sprinkle some cinnamon and stir around. Add the apples to the granola on the cookie sheet.
Stir the mixture and turn it around, then put it back in the oven for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes, turn the mixture over again, then bake for just another 5-7 minutes.
Remove from the oven, and let cool completely. The granola will get its crunchiness at this stage.
Eat with yogurt, milk, or ice cream. It’s soo good.
