[Updated] Can't you smell it? The nutty spiced scent of my cinnamon apple pie granola warms the whole house. Cinnamon, nutmeg and clove swirl through my kitchen and everyone comes running! 

It reminds me of warm apple bake on a summer day. Or my homemade apple crisp on a cool fall afternoon. My cinnamon apple pie granola is delicious all year round.

Don't buy granola at the store! It's so much tastier when made from scratch. And it cooks up in just over an hour.

It is the perfect healthy breakfast and it's gluten-free and completely vegan. While I love this granola on top of cereal or in yogurt it's also delicious on its own as a snack. If your kids are like mine, sometimes they need a healthy power boost before their next athletic event. This fits the bill perfectly.

With swim and baseball starting up for the season, this homemade Cinnamon Apple Pie Granola is easy to throw in a zip lock bag and toss in the duffel bag. It's loaded with protein and healthy grains.

We've been trying to incorporate more healthy fruits, nuts and whole grains into our daily diets. This granola and my maple almond granola are regular staples in my kitchen pantry. 

The recipe ingredients are easy to find in your local grocery store. Check the dried fruit aisle for dried apples. One 2-ounce bag yielded one cup of chopped dried apples. I also added dried cranberries for a pop of sweetness and color. 

If you like this recipe be sure to share it with all your friends on Facebook. Thanks. Enjoy:)
