It’s a great addition to yogurt, ice cream, or even a quick spring berry rhubarb crisp. It also works excellently in granola bars – or, made into old fashioned oatmeal. I love having a batch of this on hand to use as we need.
Applesauce Granola – Adapted from Fake Ginger
- 4 C old fashioned oats
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 C applesauce, unsweetened
- 1/4 C brown sugar
- 1 T honey
- 1 T olive oil or butter
In a medium saucepan, combine the 1/2 C applesauce, 1/4 C brown sugar, 1 T honey, 1 T olive oil (I used butter here) and 1/4 tsp. salt. Warm the mixture and then set aside.
Add in the 4 C oats along with 1 tsp. cinnamon.
Stir until all the oats are well coated. Then, spread the mixture on a large half-sheet cake pan, or into a 9x13 baking dish.
Bake at 300 degrees for 50 minutes, stirring every 10.
Cool completely & store in an airtight container.
