Notes

Expert Tips
  • The apple cinnamon granola will soften slightly the next day because of the apples but it still tastes delicious. If you want to add the crunch back, spread the granola on a baking sheet and bake it in a 300 degree F (177 degrees C) oven for 5-8 minutes.
  • Think of this recipe as a guideline for a basic granola and customize it as you’d like. As long as you keep the ratios the same, it’s fine to substitute just about any nuts and dried fruits.
  • If you like big clusters of nuts and oats, press the oats mixture into little 1-inch ovals for the first 10 minutes of baking.
  • Be sure to let the granola cool before eating or transferring into a jar. As the granola cools, the crispier it gets.
