foodie: apple pie "granola" (gluten-free breakfast)

ever since going gluten-free for my month long wellness experiment, i've been looking for an easy breakfast to replace my usual overnight oats (since commercial oats are often contaminated by wheat exposure).  looking for something that would offer a bit of sweetness, i developed this super simple recipe for apple pie "granola".

here's what you'll need for 2 servings...

1 apple, chopped
1/2 tbsp butter, melted
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup chopped nuts (i used pecans and walnuts)

preheat oven to 375 degrees

1. mix together apple, butter, vanilla, nuts and cinnamon.  spread evenly on a baking sheet.

2. bake for 20-25 min until apples are golden brown and nuts are toasted.

you can enjoy some immediately, or allow it to cool and save in the fridge for up to 4 days.  the recipe makes 2 servings.

for breakfast, i had some with almond milk and peanut butter one morning, and some with plain yogurt, unsweetened applesauce, and peanut butter (again) another day.  yum!


  1. yum!! that looks so good!! I'm going to have to pin it so I can make it sometime soon!!
