Preheat the oven to 300°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, stir everything together except for the oats and dried apples until well combined.
Stir in the oats, making sure to coat them well with the wet mixture.
Spread the oats onto the cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven, stir in the chopped dried apples, and bake for another 10 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Let the granola cool completely (it will harden as it cools).
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 weeks or in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
You can make this granola with honey, but it will no longer be vegan.
You can make this granola with regular rolled oats, but it will no longer necessarily be gluten free, as most commercial oats are processed with wheat ingredients nearby. You must use oats that are certified gluten free to guarantee the gluten free integrity.
