Crunchy Apple Crisp Granola

apple2apple1You know when you make an apple crisp, and you start to pick off the crunchy top first, and wonder who needs the apple filling anyways?

I could eat that crumble topping for lunch. Its the dangerous and irresistible crisp factor that occurs when you meld butter and cinnamon and oats. Its rare and almost only happens when your making an apple crumble so you have to savour it.

Or you could just make this granola… which graciously offers all the delightful apple crisp crunch but in an accessible handful. Oh and minus the butter (sorry). A couple tablespoons of coconut oil will fool you into thinking its mucho decadent.

Eat this by the pawful, toss it on top of your yogurt n’ berries, or sprinkle on your cereal and almond milk. Its additively, conveniently, snack-able.
