Food Storage Tip

Most people don’t know but you can freeze granola! Make sure your granola is completely cooled before putting it in an airtight container. Then put it in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  • 1/2 ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 325º F (163ºC)
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients and ensure they are coated evenly
  3. Transfer the mixture to a parchment-lined baking sheet and spread evenly.
  4. Bake for a total of 30 minutes. While the granola bakes, be sure to turn over the mixture every 10 minutes to ensure browning occurs evenly throughout.
