Grain Free Apple Cinnamon Granola

3 medium organic apples, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
1 c. coconut flakes
1/2 c. cashew pieces
1/4 c. chia seeds
2 T. flax seeds
1/4 c. coconut oil
1 T. honey
1 T. cinnamon
1 stevia packet
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp sea salt

This granola gets crunchy as the apples dehydrate and then cool.  It is sweet, salty and delicious served over plain, organic, grass fed yogurt or with almond milk.

In a medium sauce pan, over low heat, melt the coconut oil and honey until just combined.  Add vanilla, cinnamon, stevia, sea salt and stir to combine.  Add in all other ingredients and stir to coat.  Place in an even layer on two dehydrator trays or on a sheet pan.  Use a dehydrator set to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, for 12 hours, rotating trays halfway through cook time.  Also, could be done in an oven set to 160 degrees Fahrenheit or lowest temperature.  If your oven does not go this low, lessen cook time and stir more often.
