GRANOLA: Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat, stir in the sweetener. Add the oats, cinnamon, pinch of salt and any nuts, seeds or coconut flakes.
Stir continuously with a wooden spoon until the mixture is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Toss in any dried fruit, you are using. Remove from heat and pour into a dish.
APPLES: Return the pan to the medium heat. Melt oil or butter in a skillet; add the apples, lemon, cinnamon and allspice, saute until the apples become softened, about 5 minutes. Toss often.
Add in the vanilla and sugar and continue to cook until the sauce thickens and apples are tender, just a few more minutes. If the pan gets too dry, add a few tablespoons of water.
