Chunky Apple Crisp Granola {gf,v}

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

Oh yeah, did I mention I've decided it's fall already? This quarantine has made me realize that when I wake up, I really can make it any day I want it to be. So, I decided to get festive and make this chunky granola. This granola is bursting with apple crisp flavor, with chunks of apples and fresh spices. Along with that, there are other clean ingredients thrown in there, such as oats, almond butter, nuts, chopped dates, pure maple syrup, and more. I call this apple crisp granola because its the best of both worlds; it's got chunky apples mixed with a apple spiced, chunky crumble. What more could you ask for? Pair this with yogurt, ice cream, plant based milk, or whatever you desire! It's super easy, blender friendly, gluten free, and vegan.
