Apple Spiced Granola with Homemade Pecan Milk

Ingredients (Pecan Cinnamon Milk):

  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup pecans (soaked)
  • 5 cups of water

Ingredients (Granola):

  • 2 1/2 cup gluten free oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup pecan milk pulp

Method:

For the milk, soak pecans in water. After three hours, place pecans into the almond cow basket, add 1 tbsp of cinnamon and prepare milk with the almond cow. Store milk in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Use the leftover pulp in the apple spiced Granola recipe.

For the Granola, preheat oven to 350F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix all dry ingredients and spices in a large bowl to combine. Melt coconut oil and mix with apple sauce and leftover pecan milk pulp in a separate bowl. Combine the two mixtures and spread onto the baking sheet. Bake for about 35-40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes to achieve an even color. Once the granola is done remove from oven and set aside to cool down. Transfer the granola to an airtight jar and enjoy with homemade pecan cinnamon milk.
