In a large bowl, mix the oats, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, ground flaxseed, coconut sugar or powdered stevia, raisins, and cinnamon.
In a small saucepan, mix the applesauce, almond butter, maple syrup or liquid stevia, and vanilla extract. Heat over low heat until liquid and pourable.
Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until all of the dry ingredients are coated and moist. Add the grated apple and stir.
Place a layer of parchment paper on a sheet pan and spread the mixture onto the parchment paper in a thin layer. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Halfway through the cooking time, remove from the oven and gently stir, then place back into the oven.
Allow to cool for at least five minutes before eating. Granola is great served in a bowl with plant milk or as part of a plant based yogurt parfait with fruit.
