Apple Pie Granola

Apple Pie Granola -1

It’s only the 2nd of September, and I’m already shoving Fall in your face like nobody’s business. Don’t except me to apologize though because I adore this season. The crisp air, knee high boots with snug jackets and apples galore.  I mean come on, how can you hate any of that? So except lots more cozy recipes like this Apple Pie Granola on the blog in the upcoming months.

Apple Pie Granola 2-1

The idea of turning my favorite pie into a portable breakfast snack came to me late one night when the suffocating heat outside made me long for cooler weather. This granola is relatively low in sugar, easy to make and most importantly taste like apple pie.  I swear to god as it was baking, it was as if Fall entered my kitchen.  My favorite way to eat this Apple Pie Granola is with full fat Greek yogurt.  Decadent enough for dessert but healthy enough for breakfast. Enjoy!

    Whoa, I love that this only has a small amount of maple syrup and the rest of the sweetner is all-natural. Thank you! This will be made! I’m always looking for low-sugar breakfast options. :)
