Dining Uncorked {Yummy Granola}

My stepmom has been making granola for years and it's delicious. But, I've always felt I didn't have the time, or really know how, to make granola. I've found these recipes and as amazing as they look, there are just too many ingredients or too many steps. Until I found this recipe on The Gracious Pantry. It's a clean eating granola and only contains 5 ingredients! Seriously it's amazing. All you need to make it is mixed grains, walnuts, unsweetened applesauce, honey or agave, and cinnamon. It's the perfect amount of sweetness and crunchiness. My new favorite way to eat it, besides on its own, is by putting peanut butter on an apple and dipping it in the granola. It's sweet, crunchy, healthy, and delicious. Here is the recipe so you can see what I'm talking about!

Clean Eating Granola
(Makes approximately 3 1/2 cups)
3 cups mixed grains (rolled oats will work fine as well)
1/2 cup walnuts – chopped
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/4 cup agave or honey
2 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Step 1 – Put your grains and walnuts in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2 – In a separate bowl, mix all remaining ingredients with a whisk.
Step 3 – Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the grains and blend well. At first, it will seem as though there isn’t enough wet stuff, but keep mixing. It will eventually blend well and coat evenly.
Step 4 – Spread over a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Step 5 – Bake for 45-60 minutes, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes so it doesn’t burn. It’s done when it feels dry and has a nice golden brown color.
Allow to cool before serving.
