3 cups gluten-free rolled oats
1 cup sliced almonds
¾ cup unsweetened apple sauce
⅓ cup honey
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 cup dried apple rings, chopped
½ cup melted coconut oil, optional
Preheat the oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl place the oats and almonds. In a separate bowl add apple sauce, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. If you're using coconut oil for a more nutty flavor, add it in now. Mix and then pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Stir until all of the oats are coated.
Lay the oats in a flat layer onto the parchment paper and bake until oats turn golden brown, about 40 minutes. Check on the oats halfway through and stir them around. The granola won't be 100% crunchy when you take them out of the oven, so let them cool to get crispy. Mix in dried apple rings. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
