Important Tips for Making Homemade Granola
Don’t let it burn. When you are making healthy granola it can go from almost done to burnt very fast. You need to watch it carefully to make sure not to burn it.
Use a large mixing bowl. I like to just mix everything on the baking sheet so I have fewer dishes but you can totally add all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl and then add the wet ingredients into it, mix well and then pour onto a prepared baking sheet.
Allow homemade granola to cool. It is important to let the homemade granola cool completely before storing it.
How Long Does homemade Granola Keep?
This apple cinnamon granola will stay fresh in an airtight container for up to 1 week. The granola can also be stored in the freezer. Storing it in the freezer can change the texture of the apples slightly, however.
How Do You Store homemade Granola?
This granola will stay fresh in an airtight container, at room temperature for up to 1 week. The granola can also be stored in the freezer where it can last for several months. Remember to let the frozen granola thaw on the counter top or overnight in your refrigerator before eating.
How to Enjoy Granola
There are quite a few different ways that you can enjoy homemade granola.
- As a snack. Granola can be enjoyed on its own as a tasty snack on its own.
- With milk. Serve homemade granola in a bowl with milk like you do cereal.
- With yogurt. Any flavored yogurt, greek yogurt, or regular yogurt pairs well with granola. Just sprinkle it on top of the yogurt. If you have never made your own yogurt you totally should and our favorite is instant pot yogurt.
Why is Pumpkin Pie Spice in Apple Granola
Pumpkin spice is always a favorite flavor of everyone! In this apple pie granola, the pumpkin spice is used to give the granola it’s taste and scent. The apple and pumpkin flavors for together perfectly. Even if it seems a little strange, it is a great flavor combination and I recommend giving it a try.
If you do not like pumpkin spice or do not have it in on hand, you can also use apple pie spice. It will have the same effect in the granola as it is going to be used in a similar way.
Apple Pie Granola is a delicious and healthy fall snack that you can enjoy any time of the year. Made with pumpkin spice, oats, apples, almonds and more this recipe will be sure to please!
