Yesterday I shared with you a Coconut, Macadamia and Banana Granola and today I have the second delicious granola we enjoyed during our wedding brunch celebration.  The second one was Apple Pie Granola.  So great for breakfast but also the perfect snack to nibble on during the day!  

The fresh fruit that was also served included strawberries, apples and an amazing platter of oranges, blood oranges, limes & pistachio’s – so vibrant and beautiful to look at.
