Salty sweet caramel apple granola recipe




  1. Add maple syrup and ghee to a sauce pan over medium heat
  2. Whisk the ghee into the maple syrup as it melts
  3. Once the ghee is fully melted increase the heat to medium-high
  4. Allow the mixture to come to a rolling boil – watch closely so that it does not boil over
  5. Whisk and reduce the heat to medium-low
  6. Simmer on medium-low whisking frequently for 20 minute – the mixture should reduce to a thicker syrup
  7. While that reduces peel apple and slice into small pieces
  8. Preheat the oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  9. Combine rolled oats, cinnamon and apple pieces in a large mixing bowl
  10. Once the caramel syrup has simmered for 20 minutes remove from the heat and immediately whisk in the salt
  11. Allow that mixture to cool slightly and then pour over the oats and apple
  12. Mix thoroughly with a flat spatula so all oats and apple pieces are evenly coated in the salted caramel mixture
  13. Spread the mixture onto the baking sheet in an even layer – you want all of the oats to be touching each other as they cook so that you can break into crumbles after
  14. Bake at 325F for 30 minutes
  15. Allow the granola to cool completely before crumbling
  16. Store in an airtight in container on the counter for up to 5 days or longer in the refrigerator
