OOO I forgot today starts voting for project food blog! head here to vote for me! Just an FYI you have to join or be a member of Foodbuzz to vote (it's free) but I don't expect anyone to sign up just to vote, but if you are part of foodbuzz and want to vote I'd appreciate it!! :D

The people at Musselman's contacted me the other day and asked if I'd like to try their latest and greatest flavor additions to their apple sauce family. Sure thing I would!


Delicious on their own you know I couldn't just eat them all and not try baking with them right? The first thing I thought of was a berry granola using the mixed berry variety. It's flavored with apple sauce, strawberry raspberry and blueberry puree plus fruit juice concentrate to sweeten it.

I kept the granola pretty simple because I really wanted that berry apple sauce flavor to shine through but feel free to toss in whatever you have on hand. I also wanted to try a granola sweetened by sucanat and am so glad I did, it was a delicious combo!


Wild Berry Granola
recipe by steph chows

In a big bowl toss together
4 cups old fashion oats
1 cup almond slivers
1 cup unsweetened coconut (if you like a sweeter granola use sweetened)

In a small bowl mix together
1/3 cup sucanat (if you don't have any you can use brown sugar)
1 cup (2 small containers) Musselman's Mixed Berry Totally Fruit

Toss wet into dry until everything is incorporated and slightly wet. Pour into a thin layer on greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 until crisp. I like to take it out and toss it around every 10 minutes. Takes about 30-40 minutes to be done.

Remove from oven and let cool then toss with dried berries of your choice or eat it up plain.

Made it! I used unsweetened, plain applesauce and added 1/3 cup of honey. I was amazed at the flavor and crunch, despite not having used oil. I've got my oats, etc. combined, and I'm embarking on my second batch right now. Thanks for a delicious, healthy granola recipe.
