Apple Cinnamon Granola (Grain Free!)

Granola has a bad rap.

Most store-bought are full of processed oils, tons of sugars, and ingredients that aren't recognizable by Mother Nature.

Many also have GMO's which wreak havoc on our digestive system and make pesticides even harder for the body to break down!

I have yet to find a legit granola I like.

So of course, I had to make my own! 

This is a yummy granola recipe I love to eat with a clean whole milk and 100% grass fed yogurt and then top it with fruit like sliced bananas and fresh blue berries.

It's also super yummy to just eat it like cereal with your homemade nut and seed milks

It's super quick to create and simple to throw together, bake, and enjoy.

Don't get too caught up on having ALL the ingredients. You can sub different nuts and seeds or just make it even more simple because sometimes less is more! 

Okay, let's do this!

Apple Cinnamon Granola

Serving Size: 10 (ish)

Ingredients: (all organic ingredients recommended)

  • 4 cups sprouted oatmeal ( I use and LOVE One Degree brand!
  • 2 chopped and cored organic apples 
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut 
  • 1 cup chopped raw nuts (almonds, cashews, or walnuts!)
  • 1/2 cup sprouted hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds 
  • 1/2 cup sprouted sesame seeds 
  • 1 Tbsp. of cinnamon (more or less as desired)
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 4 tbsp. Organic apple juice 
  • 1 tsp of sea salt (I LOVE mine salty so salt to your taste)
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, honey, or molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla 


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare a baking sheet lined with UNBLEACHED parchment paper
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl.
  • Add in the melted coconut, apple juice, and optional sweetener of choice.
  • Mix until dry ingredients are coated. .
  • Spread evenly and place in pre heated oven.
  • Cook for 10 minutes. 
  • Remove from the oven to stir, then place it back into the oven for another 5 minutes.
  • Keep an eye so that it does not burn...
  • Granola should be toasted but not burned... unless you are like the few that enjoy burnt food (like my hubby and dad).

Allow to cool completely and store cool place in an airtight glass container.

Use on top of yummy yogurts, kefir, smoothies, or with your favorite nut milk... it can be a much better alternative to cereal!!
