Dorm Life: Apple Granola


Admit it fellow college students.  You have the tendency to snatch packets of peanut butter, cups of applesauce, fresh apples, and bags of oatmeal from the cafeteria on occasion.  I understand; it’s a hungry life for some of you.  I have good news!  With just these ingredients, you are almost completely prepared to make a yummy snack.  All you need to add is an oven (which is likely located in the communal kitchen down the hall) and you are set!

Apple Granola


  •      1/2 apple, skinned and diced into miniscule pieces ( I use Red Delicious)
  •      1-2 Tbs. Peanut Butter (it really depends on how much of a peanut butter flavor you want)
  •      1/4 cup applesauce (approximately.  I use 1/2 of an individual container)
  •      1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal


  •      preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  •      mix the applesauce and diced apple
  •      melt the peanut butter slightly in the microwave (about 30 seconds) and stir it in
  •      add oatmeal and stir until all of it is coated with the apple-peanut butter mixture
  •      bake approximately 12 minutes or until granola is light brown
  •      allow to cool on pan and continue crisping up
  •      eat and enjoy!
