Are you a breakfast person? Or do you struggle to have more than a cup of coffee in the morning? This Homemade Apple Spice Granola helps make breakfast a bit more palatable if you’re not one of the breakfast crew! (Or try our Apple Breakfast Loaf recipe for something a bit more indulgent.)
I’ve tried for years to get into better habits with breakfast and you’d think it would be natural and normal by now – but it’s really not.
My body just isn’t hungry in the mornings and if it wasn’t for my daily routine of sitting down with my daughter for breakfast, I probably wouldn’t eat until noon.
But the flip side is that when I don’t eat breakfast I’m ravenous and snack on just about anything I can get my hands on – I can’t make lunch fast enough! And if lunch time gets waylaid by a long phone call or an unexpected errand – then I hit a major crash and hanger looms in the distance.
To help make breakfast more enticing, I love creating delicious breakfast recipes like this apple spice granola.
This easy apple spice granola recipe is perfect for fall. I sprinkle some over yogurt in the morning and it’s like having a slice of apple pie a la mode for breakfast with a satisfying crunch and mouth-watering apple flavor.
This granola is great for mornings on the go – just add a bit of yogurt or milk when you’re ready to enjoy and dig in!
This recipe makes enough for me to enjoy a half cup every morning for a week, but you could easily double or triple this recipe as long as you store it in a sealed airtight container.
