Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a small bowl whisk together the honey, brown sugar, maple syrup, apple sauce, oil, apple pie spice, cinnamon and salt.
In a medium bowl, add the oats, walnuts and pecans. Stir in the honey mixture. Transfer to a large baking sheet in a thin layer (use two pans if necessary).
Bake in the oven for 1 hour, stirring once halfway through, or until granola is toasted and golden brown.
Remove from oven and DO NOT stir. The granola will still feel wet. Allow granola to cool on the counter for 15-20 minutes. Add in the apple chips and toss to combine.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
*Yield: Roughly 8 Cups Notes: *You can reduce the honey to as little as 3 TBS, but the granola will not be as clustery. *You can substitute canola oil for the coconut oil, but the granola will not be as clustery. *You can either leave apple chips whole or crush them, depending on preference. *You can freeze the granola for up to 2 months.
