Cinnamon Apple Snap Granola

This is a  family favorite breakfast staple and while I wish I could take the credit for such an ingenious idea, this lovely recipe it is adapted from Sarah Smith’s Nourish and Nurtured blog.

While the original is fantastic, we add in cinnamon and trade the honey for greenleaf stevia, making an amply sweet but more blood sugar balancing version (of course due in part to the cinnamon too).

And yes, I know pecans are expensive, but trust me, it is worth every penny to have this ready made super delicious, digestible and grain free breakfast cereal on hand.

In our house we use this recipe in two stages. First we serve it wet with yogurt and berries for a muesli type dish and then we dehydrate it into a dry cereal- making for more variety (work once and get two different kinds of breakfast meals out of it!).

Cinnamon Apple Snap Granola 

What you will need:
4 cups pecans
2 cups apple sauce
1/2 tsp unrefined salt
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp greenleaf stevia (ground)

How to do it:
Step 1: Soak pecans in water overnight with 1 Tbsp salt.
Step 2: In the morning strain off the water.
Step 3: Process all ingredients in the food processor by pulsing 10-20 times (see above photo for the right texture).
Step 4: Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread batter evenly.
Step 5: Dehydrate the cereal in your oven set at the lowest temperature until crispy and dry.
Step 6: Store on your counter top in a glass jar.

Serve with homemade nut milk or full fat yogurt. For extra nutrition and flavour add a dollop of creme fraiche or kefir cream and fresh fruit on top!
