Must Try This Christmas-Vegan Apple Pie Spice Granola (Recipe Inside)

by | November 28, 2018

Christmas is just around the corner and that means the sweet tooth is on the loose. The holidays always make me crave my favorite dessert : Vegan apple pie spice granola. Soft tart apples, sticky cinnamon glaze, and a flaky buttery crust. Unfortunately, for me pie is not an everyday breakfast food. Granola is the prefect way to take your favorite dessert and turn it in to a sweet breakfast. This granola is so easy to make and a convenient pantry staple because you can store it for a fast go to snack. I love this granola because it’s oil free and no refined sugar. So you can cure your sweet tooth without the added processed sugar. It’s perfect as a cereal, to top your morning yogurt, or to simply eat by the handful. Vegan Apple pie spice granola all the way!
