Author: Cookie Madness
2tablespoonsplus 2 teaspoons agave syrup or corn syrup or rice syrup
2 1/4cupsold fashioned oats
1cupnutsalmonds, pecans or anything you like
1/4teaspoonsaltplus more if needed
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil or parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix together applesauce, brown sugar, coconut oil, syrup, honey, cinnamon and ginger.
Add the oats, nuts, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds.
Sprinkle the salt over the mixture, then toss everything together until oats and nuts are thoroughly coated.
Spread the mixture on the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 40 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, until the granola is a golden brown (be careful because it starts to brown quickly during the last 10 minutes). Remove from oven and let cool completely. It should crisp as it cools.
I've cut the salt down a bit, so feel free to add more.
