Peanut Butter, Apples and Granola; Thank You Pintrest

This is an apple, with granola and peanut butter. I absolutely love it and can't wait to go buy more apples. You need to try this NOW. You can always substitute the peanut butter for honey or nutella! This is so easy, it doesn't really need a recipe. I used a big bag of granola we had from the store, but you can also make your own. BY THE WAY, if you haven't heard of Eat Yourself Skinny, you should check it out. She has wonderful recipes that are great for you and very healthy. 

Here are your ingredients: 
1 cup Cinnamon Granola (recipe below) 
1/4 cup natural-style peanut butter (nutella, or honey alone works too) 
1 Tbsp. honey 
2 red or green apples, cored and cut into rings  

Cinnamon Granola: 
1/4 cup brown sugar 
1 Tbsp water 
2 tsp. canola oil 
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon 
1 cup uncooked old-fashioned rolled oats 
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional) Cooking spray  

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!
