3 cups old fashioned rolled oats*
½ cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup almonds (I used a mixed of slivered and whole)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 large apple, peeled & diced (any variety)
1/3 cup melted coconut oil (or vegetable oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup pure maple syrup*
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup raisins
* Make sure your oats are certified gluten free if you have an intolerance.
* You may use honey, agave, or light corn syrup as the liquid sweetener. Keep in mind that using honey means your granola is no longer vegan.
This crunchy granola is packed with nutrients and will soon become a favorite. Spiced with cinnamon and cloves, it makes the perfect fall snack.
