1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F, and coat a large non-reactive oven-safe skillet with cooking spray (or butter).

In a large bowl, add apples, coconut sugar, and maple syrup; stir. Sprinkle in tapioca, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and lemon juice; stir until fully combined.

Make the topping
In another bowl, toss together granola, almond flour, and coconut oil; stir until well blended. (If using regular coconut oil, you may need to melt it first.)
