With walnuts and apple chips, this apple cider granola goes all in on apple while being crunchy and toasty. Serve it with yogurt, just milk or a mix of fruit.

Ingredients

  • 1 crisp apple, cored
  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Line two sheet pans with parchment.
  2. Slice the apple 1/8-inch or thinner using a mandolin. Place the apple slices in a single layer on the prepared sheet pans. Bake the apples for 1-1/2 hours until they are dried and brown. Set aside to cool before roughly chopping.
  3. Increase the oven temperature to 300 degrees F.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the oats, cinnamon, salt, walnuts, honey, apple cider and vanilla extract. Spread the mixture onto a parchment-lined sheet pan. Bake for 15 minutes and toss the granola. Continue baking for 15 minutes until golden brown checking the granola every 5 minutes to make sure it does not burn.
  5. Allow the granola to cool and then mix in the dried apple.
