APPLES AND GRANOLA..HAPPY FALL!

Apples are in season, but what to do with them? Hmmm...you can always bake them and put granola with them! YAY...problem solved! Apples are a great snack because they have a lot of fiber, which helps you stay full longer. Granny Smith are my ABSOLUTE favorites, but any kind has amazing health benefits! Check this recipe out, it will definitely hit the spot!
