Apple Chia Hemp Granola

I’m always testing and trying to perfect a granola recipe. It is a ridiculously easy thing to make, and your own is always the best. About six months ago, I posted a orange-chocolate granola recipe that I love, but I wanted to mix things up a little.

This variation is more nutrient-dense—omega-3 and -6 (hemp seeds); iron (pumpkin seeds); vitamin B2 and fiber (almonds); magnesium, potassium and calcium (chia seeds)—and it also uses an apple for an extra crunch. Fruit is usually added to granola in a dried form; because the apple here is fresh and doesn’t dry completely during baking, it is a good idea to store this granola in the fridge to extend its life. Cinnamon, vanilla, and maple syrup bind everything together and make the flavors gel.

Make your own nut milk to pour on the granola—here is an easy and delicious recipe.
