  • 1 cup Cinnamon-Pecan Granola (recipe below)
  • 1/4 cup natural-style peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 red or green apples, cored and cut into 6 rings

Cinnamon-Pecan Granola:

  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup uncooked old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

To make the granola:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.  Combine brown sugar and 1 Tbsp water in a medium microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave at HIGH 30 seconds or until sugar is dissolved.  Stir in oil and cinnamon.  Add oats and pecans, stirring until coated.  Spread oat mixture on a large rimmed baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 300 degrees F for 30 minutes or until browned, stirring twice.  Spread mixture in a single layer on wax paper to cool completely.  Store in an airtight container.  

For apple rings:

Place 1 cup of the granola mixture in a small dish.  Combine peanut butter and honey in a small bowl, stirring until smooth.  Spread mixture evenly on 1 side of each apple slice.  Sprinkle evenly with granola.  Enjoy!
