I have more apples than I can count from my apple picking adventures last weekend, so I’ve been trying to incorporate them into my diet in fun ways. I’ve been mixing them into applesauce and yogurt, but one of my absolute favorite combos is apple slices with peanut butter and granola on top.
“What type of granola?” you ask. It’s the fall, so I’ll give you one guess. Ding Ding! Pumpkin!
A lot of granolas can be very high in calories when made with brown sugar and honey and all that jazz, but I made a healthier version that’s just as sweet and delicious. Granola can also take quite a long time to make, but I cut out some cooking time by not have to boil down a honey and oil mixture. Here are all the ingredients. It may seem like a lot, but it’s simple.
This granola mixes perfectly with yogurt and pumpkin butter or, as I mentioned, on top of apples and peanut butter. Another great way to enjoy this granola is to turn it into a cereal. Chop up half and apple, slice half a banana, mix it with ½ a cup of this granola and enjoy with ½ a cup of almond milk for a healthy, filling breakfast or afternoon snack.
Do you have any healthier versions of snack-time favorites?
