Applesauce Granola

Hi there, 


It’s Tasha here! Welcome to “Recipes with Tasha”. One of my favorite foods to eat is granola, well that is after Holmes MouthWatering Original Applesauce. What I love about granola is that it can be sprinkled on almost anything! Or you can just nibble on it while you are on the go! 


I found this awesome recipe for applesauce granola! I switched out the unsweetened applesauce for Holmes MouthWatering Orginal Flavored Applesauce! WOW! This is super tasty granola! Remember that our applesauce is packed with mouthwatering flavors. You might want to forgo the honey, depending on your taste preference. I left the honey in because I sure do have a sweet beak!


I wanted to thank Stephanie over at for helping me come up with a great applesauce recipe!
