Blogmas 8… Apple Crumble Granola

Winter calls for cosy crumbles. I wanted to bring that comfort to the breakfast table by making an apple crumble granola. I love how the warmth comes for the cinnamon and almonds in this recipe. The sweet apple pieces and caramel flavoured maca powder help to give this granola a depth of flavour. I really hope you like this recipe and let me know if you make it! It could be a great gift to bake for someone this Christmas!

 

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 180o Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
  • Melt the coconut oil in the microwave or in a saucepan.
  • Set the dried apple pieces aside for later. Combine all the other ingredients into a bowl, including the coconut oil. Stir well until thoroughly mixed.
  • Divide the granola between the 2 baking trays and press the mixture down so that it sticks together.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Break the granola apart with a fork and then cook for another 10 minutes.
  • Take the granola out of the oven and leave to cool completely on the baking trays.
  • When the mixture is completely cool, stir in the apple pieces and transfer to an airtight jar or container.
  • Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this recipe!

 

A Note from me…

 

This year for Blogmas, my motivation is to raise awareness of the incredible charity MIND.

 

This marvellous charity does so much to support people suffering from mental health. With ongoing pressures from social media and a million other stresses these days, it is more important than ever to look after our health. As an anxiety sufferer myself, charities like these make such a difference to supporting people that need a voice to listen to and supply tools to help them through difficult circumstances. You can take a look at their website to see the amazing things they do and to take a look at the resources available online to help those needing extra help this Christmas. The winter season can be very difficult with people suffering from anxiety and depression. I would absolutely love it if you could donate something (however small) to this charity as a thank you to me for posting Christmas blogs this Blogmas. I really hope we can raise money and awareness for this stunning cause.
