Apple Spice Granola (Gluten-free+ Vegan)

How is it already time to be thinking about fall? It just doesn’t seem right. I feel like we were just talking about summer being around the corner. Phew, it has flown by. I try really really hard not to rush the seasons. I personally don’t think we should be talking pumpkin recipes for at least a few weeks. What’s the hurry? Let’s enjoy the summer weather and produce while we still can.

I am going to try my hardest to hold off on pumpkin recipes at least until October. Let’s see if I can do it.

With that being said, we did get some apples in our CSA box this past week, so I was inspired to create something a little bit autumney. This granola is so simple to make and it is wonderful with your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk as cereal, it’s great over yogurt or ice cream or just on it’s own by the handful, as a snack.

With this being our first fall on the west coast, I think the warmer temperatures and the lack of fall foliage is definitely something that will take some getting used to. I will likely miss the east coast autumns more than any other time of the year. I plan to savor every bit of fall through my food, though. That is something you can definitely count on around here.

What are your favorite flavors of fall? Are you excited for fall or do you want summer to stick around a little longer?

My family just loves granolas in the morning and I’m always searching for new recipes, thanks!

Mmmm! I am so on board with waiting until October to post pumpkin recipes. I hope most food bloggers try and hold out until then too. Until then, I am so already coming up with apple cinnamon recipes. I do love boot, scarf, and sweater season but I am not ready for it yet.

Looks really good. I’ve been trying to make my own granola forever, but it’s just not happening!

We start spring in a couple of days but I have to say I LOVE America’s fall, I adore all those pumpkin recipes. I visited Oregon around Halloween, one of my all time best life experiences. I enjoyed everything about your fall/winter it is so different to mine.

Your granola looks terrific, and perfect for fall. I can’t believe how many pumpkin recipes there are already, so this is refreshing!

Thanks Marcie!! The apple recipes can get so overlooked with all the pumpkin, I am trying to make sure the apple gets just as much love this fall 😉
