Maple Apple Granola


3 jazz apples, cored and chopped
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup raw almonds, chopped
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup Grade A maple syrup
1 tbsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325F. Place chopped apples, oats, almonds, flaxseed meal, cinnamon, in a large baking sheet and mix together. Cut in the butter with your hands, until only small pieces remain.
Pour maple syrup and vanilla into the baking sheet, and use your hands to thoroughly mix together all the ingredients.
Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, then toss with a spatula to break up large clumps. Place back in the oven and bake for 20 more minutes, until granola is mostly dry.
Toss the granola once more with the spatula and let it cool completely on the baking sheet before storing or serving.

My weekend recap roundup got lost in the shuffle- and I have no time to re-write this morning.  I have to bake cupcakes for Evan's party at school.  Ahhhhh, my morning of "trying not to rush" is starting to feel way rushed.  Happy Monday people, I will round up tomorrow and fill you in on all the glorious details.
