A healthy apple breakfast recipe for homemade apple spice granola using coconut, apple chips, dried prunes and honey to sweeten naturally

I’ve tried for years to get into better habits with breakfast and you’d think it would be natural and normal by now – but it’s really not.

My body just isn’t hungry in the mornings and if it wasn’t for my daily routine of sitting down with my daughter for breakfast, I probably wouldn’t eat until noon.

But the flip side is that when I don’t eat breakfast I’m ravenous and snack on just about anything I can get my hands on – I can’t make lunch fast enough! And if lunch time gets waylaid by a long phone call or an unexpected errand – then I hit a major crash and hanger looms in the distance.
