Apple Cinnamon Granola (No Refined Sugar)

Apple Cinnamon Granola.  For me, cold cereal just doesn’t cut it.  Who has ever had a bowl of cereal that kept them full until lunchtime?  Um, no one!  I am usually starving an hour later!

That is why I love homemade granola.  Homemade granola keeps me full until lunchtime.  Apple and cinnamon go so perfectly well together too.  This apple cinnamon homemade granola is one of my favorite recipes.  Homemade Apple Cinnamon Granola  is great as a snack, over yogurt or as a cereal.

  1. Another awesome recipe! My 4-year-old son normally refuses to eat anything with oats in it but he actually snacked on this granola. He said that it tasted like candy. My husband and I prefer your gingerbread granola but I'll definitely be making this one again for my son! :)
  2. I have this in the oven now. I have only made the PB, just because I love PB, but also wanted to try something different. My hubby walked in as I was spreading on the pan, said, "What in the world smells so good?", and started eating off the pan. I can't wait 'till its done! :)
  3. How long can these be stored for? And is it the same answer for all the granola recipes you have on your blog?
    1. All the granola can be stored in an airtight container for about 7-10 days. You can keep it in the fridge for longer storage.
  4. Do you prefer to line your pan with parchment or foil or is there something else? Looking forward to giving this a try :)
    1. I line mine with parchment or a silicone liner. I often use the same sheet of parchment over and over again. :)
  5. I need your help.... I am trying to find a way to eat healthier and lose weight while saving money on buying all this organic food at the same time... I use coupons for everything but not much on this kind of healthy food. Is there any advice you can give me on the best way to save and continue eating this kind of food... Your the first website where I truly love everything you post and it's all so super easy... I'm on this site daily... I am desperately looking to change how I eat and cook but have not found the motivation to start .. even though I'm 20 pounds over weight I work two jobs and am always so busy... Need help trying to get this started but don't know how... Any advice????
    1. Hi Rita, Thank you for your kind words. Here is a post I wrote about eating healthy on a budget. Also, here is another post about baby steps to a healthier life. Honestly, don't try to change everything overnight. Just change a couple new things a week. That is how I did. Ease yourself into the healthier lifestyle. I hope these post can help and you can always email me if you have any other questions. :) You can do it!
  6. I just made this granola. It's delicious! I followed everything exactly except for the maple syrup. I don't have any, so I used honey instead. It would probably be a little sweeter with the syrup, but it still came out really good with the honey. Thanks for these recipes! I will probably make the peanut butter cup granola next. :-)
    1. I store it in a glass jar in the pantry. It should last about 2 weeks that way. If you cook it until it's crisp, it should not get soggy. Wait until it's completely cooled before storing in a container.
      1. Great! This is going to replace my kid's cereal, wish me luck :) Oh and saw Rita's comment above. I save a lot of money by buying a ton of things at the WholeFoods bulk aisle, Some things are organic and still cheaper than Walmart!?! Just stay away from the other aisles the price will definitely go up :)
        1. I just bought real maple syrup at Big Lots and it was also one of their 20% off everything days. That's the cheapest I've found! Otherwise, Sam's Club. Aldi has great pricing on oatmeal, but it's not organic.
