Sounds like a mouthful, huh? This Healing Honey Toasted Apple Cinnamon Granola may come off like a difficult one to make, but I promise it’s easy as can be and comes out nice, sweet, and crunchy! This recipe is part of a fun cancer prevention series I’ve partnered with Wendy Walk on. You can easily sprinkle this granola over any yogurts, serve it in a bowl with almond milk, or eat it on its own. Just be careful, it’s addicting. 🙂
Wendy Walk is an organization that was founded to support Wendy in her battle with Liposarcoma. Her three children began this organization by raising funds and awareness for Sarcoma through events around the country inspiring thousands, including me which led me to partner with them to help get the word out there. Wendy Walk has a strong focus on staying active and positive, and always remembering Wendy’s motto: “I am not my scans.” While granola may not be the first thing you think of when you think of cancer prevention, I’ve spoofed this one up with some antioxidant-rich, cancer-fighting superfoods for those that are looking for a quick on-the-go snack!

- 3 cups gluten-free rolled oats
- 1 cup sliced almonds
- ¾ cup unsweetened apple sauce
- ⅓ cup honey
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup dried apple rings, chopped
- ½ cup melted coconut oil, optional
- Preheat the oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl place the oats and almonds. In a separate bowl add apple sauce, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. If you're using coconut oil for a more nutty flavor, add it in now. Mix and then pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Stir until all of the oats are coated.
- Lay the oats in a flat layer onto the parchment paper and bake until oats turn golden brown, about 40 minutes. Check on the oats halfway through and stir them around. The granola won't be 100% crunchy when you take them out of the oven, so let them cool to get crispy. Mix in dried apple rings. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
