Granola Baking and Storage Tips
Here are a few baking and storage tips to make sure your healthy homemade granola is perfect:
- Spread your granola out evenly on a parchment-paper-lined baking pan. The parchment makes transferring your granola to a storage container much easier. If your granola is piled high on one pan, use two baking pans or cook it in batches so it cooks evenly.
- Cook your granola at a lower temperature, around 300°F or so, so the granola has time to crisp up without burning. Your granola will bake for about an hour or so. Stir it around once or twice while it cooks.
- Your homemade granola can be stored in an airtight container for 2 to 4 weeks. Before transferring it to a storage container, make sure it has cooled completely.
