Apple Crumble Granola

Just a forewarning for any recipe that come through the blog this fall...I'm obsessed with apples this year. There you go, there was your warning.

Apple Crumble Granola Recipe for Fall

I am also always obsessed with granola. Call me crazy but a big scoop of Greek yogurt with crunchy granola on top for breakfast...yum. So in honor of fall, I give you Apple Crumble Granola. All the flavors of fall packed into a crunchy, sweet treat.

Apple Crumble Granola

Time:30 minutes Servings: 2 cups


  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted

  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup Honey

  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

  • 1/2 cup dried Apples

  • 1/2 cup Pecan Pieces

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1 TBS. Apple Pie Spice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, honey, vanilla, salt, and apple pie spice until fully combined

  3. Next, add in the oats, pecans, and apples to the honey mixture and stir until everything is well coated

  4. Pour the mixture into a prepared baking dish and spread evenly throughout the pan

  5. Bake the granola mixture for 20 - 25 minutes until golden brown, be sure to stir half way through the baking process

  6. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week


Tips & Tricks

  • I use 1/4 cup honey to this recipe BUT I don't like my granola super sweet. If you prefer your granola to be sweeter, I recommend using 1/2 to 3/4 cup of honey.

  • If you want your finished granola to be chunkier, when you stir your granola during the baking process, do not flatten it back onto the pan. Instead, let the clumps fall where they may and there you go, chunky granola.

  • For the dried apples, I used granny smith. I found red delicious apples were a little too sweet for me, there goes that sweet thing again, but the granny smith had just the right balance of tart and sweet.

Behind the Scenes

So this recipe was invented during quarantine, when both our kids were at home with me. Kate picked out the name Apple Crumble and Sam helped me with the photo styling, as you can see.
