  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup agave (or honey if you’re not vegan)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 325.
  2. Combine the applesauce, agave, coconut oil, and vanilla.
  3. Stir in the cinnamon and salt. Make sure it’s well combined.
  4. Stir in the oats and walnuts until well coated.
  5. Spray a large, rimmed baking sheet with coconut oil or non-stick spray.
  6. Spread out the granola into an even layer.
  7. Bake on the middle rack for 12-15 minutes. (You want it to just begin to brown on the bottom.)
  8. Gently flip over with a spatula. If you like really clumpy granola, be careful not to break it apart.
  9. Bake for another 12-15 minutes until the granola is crunchy.
  10. Set aside and let cool.
  11. Transfer to an airtight container to store it.
