Apple Pie Bowl

This granola recipe is adapted from feastingonfruit recipe.


1 3/4 cup rolled oatmeal

1/4 cup hemp seeds (or chia seeds)

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup Maple syrup or agave syrup

pinch of salt

"Baked" Apple

1 apple

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoons water

FOR GRANOLA: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium sized bowl, combine all of the granola ingredients and stir to coat with syrup.

Spread granola mixture on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

Bake granola for 5 minutes, stir and continue to cook for 3-5 more minutes. Checking at 3 minutes to make sure it doesn't burn. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

FOR "Baked" Apple:

Wash and chop apple into large dice. Add cinnamon and water and stir. Put in microwave and bake until apple is soft about 3-5 minutes depending on the power of your microwave. Apple can also baked in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes.

To eat, top "baked" apple with generous amount of granola and enjoy. You can also add a dollop of plant-based yogurt for creaminess. I like So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Yogurt.

*NOTE: granola can also be layered with yogurt and diced fresh fruit to make a parfait.
