  • 4 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/3 c unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/3 c maple syrup
  • 1/4 c peanut butter
  • 2 T coconut oil
  • 1 cup total walnuts, dried cranberries, and shredded coconuts (you can substitute or add any other dried fruits, seeds, and nuts - I love almonds, dates, and sunflower seeds!)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat your oven to 325. Stir together the apple sauce, maple syrup, peanut butter and coconut oil and cinnamon in a medium bowl and microwave on high for 40 seconds or until warm. Pour the mixture over the oats and stir, then mix in the nuts and dried fruit.
  • Spread the mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes so it cooks evenly. Take it out of the oven and allow to cool completely before you store it in an airtight container or ziplock bag.
