  • 2 cups rolled oats gluten-free
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 4 oz. unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup gluten-free flour
  • ¼ cup flax seeds
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg beaten
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Topping: ¼ cup melted vegan mini semi-sweet chocolate chips melted


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line with cupcake liners a muffin pan and spray with cooking spray or use a silicone muffin pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the oats, coconut sugar, shredded coconut, cinnamon, flour, almonds, flax seeds and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the maple syrup, egg, apple sauce, oil and vanilla. Mix well using a spoon or your hands. Scoop about ½ cup into each muffin section and pat down to compact and ensure even baking.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until the granola muffins begin to turn golden at the edges. Cool then transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Melt chocolate chips in a bowl in the oven on 250 degrees 3-5 minutes or in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minutes until slightly melted. Stir until fully melted and with a fork drizzle the melted chocolate over granola bites. Let cool then serve.
