Homemade Apple Chai Spice Granola



  • 3 cups of old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup of almonds, slivered or chopped
  • 1/2 cup of pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of applesauce (I unthawed frozen, unsweetened applesauce that I made awhile back at home. Here’s how to make homemade, unsweetened applesauce.)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 large Pinata apple, with skins on and diced into 1″ or smaller cubes

Flavorful chai adds an autumn spin to this homemade Apple Spice Chai Granola.

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients (oats, almonds, pecans, spices, brown sugar) and vanilla into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Next, dice the Pinata apple up into one-inch or smaller cubes.
  4. Melt the coconut oil and mix with the flaxseeds, applesauce, and honey in a small bowl.
  5. Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture and stir to coat. Fold in the diced Pinata apples.
  6. Spread the oat mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and place into the oven.
  7. After 10 minutes, open the oven and stir the oats, turning the mix to prevent burning.
  8. Repeat this process until the wet mixture has cooked, but before the granola has hardened too much, about 30-35 minutes. Allow the granola to cool!
  9. Enjoy immediately or place in glass containers to store for up to 10 days.
