Vegan MoFo #7: Quickie Post! Apple Cinnamon Granola with Pepitas and Dried Apricots

You can find my two previous Quickie Posts of Vegan MoFo here and here.

Most every Saturday morning, I transform my dorm’s communal kitchen into a granola-making haven by whipping up an aromatic batch of fresh fruit-sweetened granola. No two versions of my granola ever exactly resemble each other, shifting their flavor profiles in keeping with the seasons and with which fruit the prior Thursday’s farmers market boasts.

Today’s granola features honeycrisps, the most impeccably sweet apple beknownst to humankind, generously spiced with cinnamon and studded with chewy bits of dried apricots and goldenberries. The exact ingredients and measurements are as follows, should you wish to recreate the scrumptious product of today’s granola antics, and you can follow the directions for my template recipe of fresh fruit-sweetened granola.

Gaze upon the perfect clustering!

Ingredients: 3 medium honeycrisp apples, 5 dates, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp lucuma, 1 tsp cardamom, 2 1/2 cups GF rolled oats, 1 cup raw buckwheat groats, 3/4 cup flaxseed meal, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1/3 cup pepitas, 10 diced dried apricots, 1/3 cup goldenberries.

Comment Provoking Questions: How often do you make granola? What are your favorite flavor combinations? Do you usually use the same recipe?

Happy Vegan MoFo!

Until next time, Ali.
