Agave Granola

(Goodbye Fall and Winter)

Nelle's Homemade Agave Sweetened Granola
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup diced dried candied ginger

Preheat oven to 325°F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Mix all the dry ingredients in large bowl. Stir honey, applesauce, vanilla, and oil in saucepan over medium-low heat until smooth. Pour honey-apple-oil mixture over oat mixture; toss. Spread on prepared sheet. Bake until golden brown, stirring every 10 minutes, about 45 minutes. Place sheet on drying rack. Stir granola a bit to cool. Mix in candied ginger.

Serve this little treat with greek yogurt or simply munch it when you want to feel whole.
