Raspberry Maple-Pecan Granola

Ingredients

Method

  • Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Mix together the wet ingredients. Combine with the oats, make sure they are well coated. Spread the granola mixture on a prepared sheet pan in a single layer. Bake for about 50 minutes, toss with a long pair of tongs every 15 minutes. Granola will crisp up when cool. Store in a cool, dry place in an airtight container.
  • Serve with greek yogurt, milk or enjoy by the handful!
  • Notes
  • Do not use quick cooking oats for this recipe.
  • Look for dried fruits with no refined sugar added.
  • When it comes to pure maple syrup I love the richer color and flavor of grade B. It has a dark amber color and is infused with more maple flavor due to the fact that it is produced later in the season than the grade A.

Homemade Raspberry Applesauce

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 8-10 servings

Serving Size: 1/2 cup (4 ounces)

Homemade Raspberry Applesauce

Ingredients

  • 6 Apples, cored, cut into chunky pieces
  • 10 ounces fresh or frozen Raspberries
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • splash of Lemon Juice
  • a few pinches ground Cinnamon, Ginger or any spice you like
  • Optional
  • Natural Sweetener to taste if needed

Method

  • Bring all ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce to a simmer, partially cover the pot and cook for 25-30 minutes until the fruit is nice and tender, Carefully transfer fruit sauce to a blender or food processor. Purée until well combined. Serve warm or chilled.
  • Notes
  • I do not remove the apple skins. They add great nutrients, flavor and fiber.
  • Use your favorite apple variety for homemade applesauce. We love Pink Lady, Granny Smith, Gala and Honey Crisp apples. A combo is great too.
  • Add your favorite natural sweetener to taste of needed. This will depend on the overall sweetness of your fruit.
