Apple Crumble Granola

Do you need an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast? Then check out this scrumptious Apple Crumble Granola.

It is exploding with crunchy nuts, seeds and dried apple pieces.

And I promise you that once you try this granola you will want to make it again and again.

You may have noticed that I have been a little bit absent over here on the blog this last month or so.

Life has just been kinda hectic lately.

Apple Crumble Granola

It all started with an extremely busy Christmas period, followed by a three week holiday while my Mum visited.

But for the last few weeks, I have been helping out with the finishing touches on a house reno that Jason and Michael have been working on the last few months.

And I tell ya what, it has been physically draining.

Long days with few hours to spare, has meant that I have not had much time for blogging.

But I will admit that it has been kinda fun.

And the guys have done such an awesome job with the transformation.

I am so super proud of them, especially considering they hadn’t done anything like this in the past.

The one thing that has been a MUST during these long working days is having something quick and easy for breakfast.

Something that is packed with nutrition, flavor and is healthy as.

Which pretty much sums up this delicious Apple Crumble Granola!

The best part about this Apple Crumble Granola is that it tastes just like the dessert but in breakfast form.

Sweetened with maple syrup, brown sugar and a sprinkling of cinnamon contributes to this granolas dessert-like flavors.

It has an incredibly crunchy texture, with heaps of roughly chopped almonds combined with desiccated coconut and oats.

Lightly toasted together with coconut oil to give an amazing crunch factor.

Plus I have added in a good amount of sunflower and pumpkin seeds to the mix.

Lately, I have been adding a sprinkling of seeds to pretty much everything and anything I eat.

Cause these little powerhouses of nutrition add extra crunch as well as adding extra vitamins and minerals to any meal.

Combined these two will increase your levels of iron and protein.

And will give you a good boost of vitamin E and B, magnesium, potassium and zinc.

They are also great for heart health and can lower your cholesterol levels.

Finally, we need to talk about the dried apple pieces.

Cause it can’t be an Apple Crumble Granola without the apple right?

These little chewy pieces add a fantastic contrast in texture to the granola.

With every mouth full these dices give a burst of fruity flavor and a chewy texture against the crunchiness of the rest of the granola.

It is truly amazing.

Once toasted together you will have a super quick and easy breakfast to fuel your morning with.

I highly recommend serving it with a good splash of almond milk.

And if you’re not dairy-free a blob of greek yogurt pairs perfectly.
