The Easy Cinnamon Apple Granola is great for topping yogurt and smoothie bowls! This homemade granola is naturally sweetened, and is quick and easy to make.
There are less than 10 ingredients used in this recipe, which makes it easy to throw together when you are in a time crunch. Review the list of ingredients below to learn more about their health benefits.
sprouted rolled oats: oats are a whole grain packed with important nutrients. I prefer rolled oats versus crushed or steel-cut oats as rolled oats tend to be larger in size. Ultimately, the size of the rolled oats make for a better choice when creating a homemade granola.
ground flaxseed: I love sprinkling ground flaxseeds in smoothies, baked goods, and oatmeal as they increase the nutritional value while adding minimal flavor. Flaxseeds contains protein, fiber, and is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. It is a great addition to any recipe!
ceylon cinnamon: cinnamon adds great flavor to the granola, feel free to add more!
coconut oil: with miscommunication on the web related to coconut oil, this ingredient used in moderation may be beneficial due to the healthy fat content.
honey: honey is a great alternative to table sugar as it is considered a “natural” sweetener. But be aware honey still contains sugar. Therefore, moderation is important.
After baking the granola, let it cool completely before packaging. Store the granola in an airtight container at room temperature. I prefer to consume the granola within the week of baking it. However, feel free to store your granola for up to 3 months.
There are many ways to consume this tasty granola. Add berries and this granola into a bowl along with your choice of milk for a cereal-like snack. Use the granola as a topping for yogurt, custard, smoothies, or the Banana Chocolate Ice Cream. Or, you may simply eat it plain!
