Maple Cinnamon Granola Recipe

This maple cinnamon granola is a delicious way to start your morning!

Few things start your morning off with as much flavor as a good granola. This was actually meant to be a cookbook recipe, but I thought I’d share it here on my blog instead.

A mason jar sits filled to the rim with Clean Eating Maple Cinnamon Granola. There are small chunks of granola scattered around the base of the jar as well.

It’s got wonderful, cinnamon-packed flavor and is very filling as well. I had mine with some homemade almond milk and a touch of honey. It was pure bliss!

The great thing about homemade granolas is that you can give them as gifts! This would be wonderful for Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, just about any holiday really. Package it up in a plastic bag or jar and add a pretty bowl or spoon and you’ve got a really unique gift!

But even for everyday breakfasts, this granola can function equally as a take-along snack or simply a filling breakfast for any morning of the week. Make a big batch in advance and store in a food-safe container in the refrigerator for up to 2 months, or freeze for up to 6 months. If freezing, please ensure that you use an air-tight container so moisture doesn’t get in and turn your nice crunchy granola into something soggy.

My little guy has even enjoyed this over a small bowl of clean vanilla ice cream! Granola is so versatile and just downright yummy!

  1. Did it come out crunchy using applesauce? For some reason mine never does when I use it! Thank you!

      Kristen – Yes it did! You may just need to bake yours longer. Every oven is different. Just be sure the heat is turned down so it doesn’t burn.
