Preheat the oven to 250ºF. Line a large baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, toss together oats, almonds, quinoa, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
In a medium size bowl, whisk together unsweetened applesauce, brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Pour mixture over oat mixture and stir to coat evenly.
Pour the melted coconut oil over coated oat mixture until evenly distributed. Spread granola onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring after each 15 minute increment. Do not stir after the last 15 minutes. Allow to cool on baking sheet.
When granola is completely cool, break up apple chips and toss them with the granola. Granola stays fresh in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 weeks. Because of the applesauce, granola will lose its crunch over time.
*If you prefer to use sweetened applesauce, you may want to omit the brown sugar.
