Spiced Walnut Apple Pie Granola {Recipe}

I know what you might be thinking…

“Taylor, seriously, ANOTHER apple recipe?”

But hopefully, it’s more like…

“Yay Taylor! ANOTHER apple recipe! Whoo hoo!!!”

What can I say, I’ve been all about the apples this year! I even have a new oatmeal walnut apple cookie, I might share, if you want me to? Just let me know, otherwise I’ll take it as a sign to jump off the apple wagon and jump aboard the citrus and cranberry bus.

But today I have to share this apple recipe. Dan says it’s the best granola I have ever made, and I have to agree! This one was good, but this one is even better! Sprinkle on top of oatmeal, in yogurt, or do as I do…

Make a pumpkin pie shake, heat it up for 60 seconds and then sprinkle a bit of this on top!

It’s like breakfast soup! Delicious! I promise.

Spiced Walnut Apple Pie Granola

Dry Ingredients: 

  • 1 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped apple
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, toss all the dry ingredients together. In another small bowl, blend all wet ingredients (I used a small food processor).
  3. Poor wet over dry and stir until evenly coated.
  4. Pour the mix onto a nonstick cookie sheet (or line with parchment paper) and cook for ~35 minutes. Lightly toss/stir every 10 minutes for even cooking.
  5. Allow to cool before storing.

Enjoy! If it looks good do a little Pintresting and spread the yummy word! 🙂

I personally love the Vanilla Tahitian Granola that our local health food store (Earth Fare) makes. It’s amazing!
