When I first made this I knew my search for the perfect granola recipe was over. Every recipe I came across had a hefty amount of sugar and oil. Isn’t granola supposed to be healthy!? Well, this one is!
This granola has some healthy fat from the nuts and seeds as well as a bit of sweetness from the honey.
This crunchy granola goes great over some yogurt for breakfast or just grab a handful for a snack on the go. My kids really enjoy this with milk. It is a much healthier cereal option than the other junk filled cereals out there.
It is super quick to put together and you will have enough to last a while, which is always great.
Healthy, Good For You Granola
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1 Tb cinnamon
Mix all dry together, then in separate bowl mix:
2 Tb water
1 Tb vanilla extract
1/4 cup applesauce
1/3 cup honey
Pour wet into dry and mix till fully coated. Spread in a thin layer on baking sheet lined with baking paper that has been sprayed with oil. Bake at 300F for 20 minutes, remove and stir then bake for another 15-20 minutes. Be sure it does not get too brown or it will taste burnt. It will also get crunchier as it sits once out of the oven.
