Practical Uses For What To Do With Leftover Granola

If you’re a granola lover, then you already know the dilemma: what to do with those last few bites of sweet and crunchy granola that always seem to be left at the bottom of the bag? It’s not enough to be a bowlful or even a filling snack. But you’d never dream of tossing it out! Well, you’re in luck. This month we’re taking a creative look at what to do with leftover granola. 

Mini Fruit Crumble With Stewed Apples And Leftover Granola Recipe

This treat couldn’t be easier and it’s perfect for fall! Just dice one or two apples (or a cup of your favorite fruit), transfer to a bowl, and add one to two tablespoons of butter, half a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, and a bit of lemon zest. 

Mix ingredients until the apples are well coated, then place them on the stove in a small pot. Cover and heat on medium for fifteen to twenty minutes, stirring occasionally. 

As the mixture cooks, grab your granola (we love our original granola for this recipe) and chop it up in a food processor, making it extra crumbly. Sprinkle on top of your stewed apples, and enjoy!

Not only will your body appreciate the anti-inflammatory benefits of the cherries and healthy fats from the seeds, but your tastebuds will love the indulgence of Crunchy Monkey’s chocolate chips!
