Homemade Apple Pie Granola Recipe - Taste the warm and hearty flavors of fall with this homemade granola recipe that is full of warm apple pie spices and chunks of dried apples!

Homemade Apple Pie Granola Recipe

I am not much of a cold cereal eater but I do love a bowl of granola for breakfast. Topped with a little milk, or in my case some soy or almond milk since I am lactose intolerant, and it just makes for the perfect breakfast or snack. If you have ever priced store bought granola though you know how expensive it can be. The price per ounce for granola is sometimes two to three times as much as regular breakfast cereal and that is a ouchy on the pocketbook!

But making your own homemade granola is so easy (really it is, I promise) and you can flavor it up however you want. In the past I have shared my orange cranberry granola recipe and now I present you with this homemade apple pie granola flavor which is perfect for fall (or any time of the year really!)

Step 1: Gather your ingredients

Orange Cranberry Granola

Cranberry Orange Granola Recipe!

Cranberry Orange Granola Recipe

Let’s face it, granola in the stores is pricey. A bag of granola where I live can easily run $3.00 -$4.00 for a 16 oz. bag. But making your own is so simple and frugal too.

This cranberry orange granola recipe runs me about $1.50 in ingredients. Much cheaper. Plus, I have 100% control of the ingredients in my granola. No artificial sweeteners, colors or preservatives. Just good old-fashioned ingredients! Making it  could not be easier. It literally takes me minutes to whip up a batch of granola on a Sunday night after the kids go to bed and then I have an easy breakfast in the morning all-week long.

25 Awesome Sweet Potato Recipes

I don’t know why but whenever I think of sweet potatoes I always think of that traditional Thanksgiving side dish that my mom makes. Chunks of sweet potatoes, in a sweet brown sugar syrup and spiced up with cinnamon and perhaps a pinch of nutmeg. Then topped with miniature marshmallows and baked until hot and bubbly and the marshmallows are both melted and crispy browned.

But the funny thing is, you can buy sweet potatoes year-round and they are actually pretty inexpensive too. Fall is when they are in season though so this is the time of year to buy them at their lowest price point!

And boy are they healthy too! One cup of cubed sweet potato is only 114 calories and packs a whole lot of nutrients! There is 377% of your daily requirement for vitamin A which is the vitamin our bodies need for healthy eyes. Plus there is a nice healthy dose of 4 grams of fiber too.

Why not take advantage of the great prices on sweet potatoes and try and incorporate these tasty tubers in your meals? We have gathered 25 great recipes for you from some fabulous food bloggers. From breakfast, dinner, snacks, dessert and more you are sure to discover a couple new sweet potato recipes!

Easy Homemade Yogurt

Easy Homemade Yogurt

Easy, frugal homemade yogurt so delicious you’ll never go back to store bought!

I have been curious about making yogurt for a long time but I always assumed it was much more work than it is. When I finally decided to make it I took something from the 2 recipes over at Kitchen Simplicity and Keeper Of The Home. Between the two recipes I was able to create a recipe that is super simple and delicious!

Serve this yogurt either plain, in smoothies, with some fresh fruit or topped with granola. Any way you you eat it is sure to be a winner!

Easy Homemade Yogurt Recipe

Ingredients

  • Milk (I use whole milk, but you can make yogurt with any fat percentage of milk you prefer)
  • Yogurt (plain) with live, active cultures (2 teaspoons per 2 quarts)

Instructions

Pour 2 quarts of milk in a pan & heat on medium heat, stiring often with a whisk.

Heat until the milk is very hot when you touch it with a clean finger.

Remove from heat & set aside to cool until you can you can comfortably put your finger in it but it’s still warm.

Add 2 teaspoons of yogurt & whisk to combine.

Put lid on pot, wrap in several clean towels & place it in the oven.

DO NOT turn the oven on. Turn the oven light on for some warmth & let yogurt sit for 8-12 hours (Mine is usually about 10 hours).

Store in airtight containers in the fridge for 7-14 days (mine is always gone before day 7!).

If you prefer Greek yogurt (I do!) Line a mesh strainer with cheese cloth or a tea towel & let is strain for about an hour (any longer & it is super thick! If it’s too thick for you just add some of the liquid back in until you reach the desired consistency. It thickens once it is refrigerated so I usually put mine in the fridge to strain & then transfer to mason jars.

Favorite Whole Wheat Pancakes {A Whole Foods Recipe}

I’ve recently switched to eating only whole foods. I’ve had to play around with some recipes to try & find whole food ways of making some of my favorites. Pancakes are something we love in our house & my husband likes to make them for our girls every weekend. Our favorite recipe called Favorite Pancakes was given to me almost 10 years ago by my friend Little John. I usually cut this recipe in half as it will make 2 dozen pancakes (if you cut in 1/2 use 2 eggs).

Or you can make the recipe as is and freeze the extra pancakes for mornings when you need a quick breakfast!

Homemade Breakfast Sausage

I love breakfast sausage, links, patties, or browned and crumbled in biscuits and gravy or to use in breakfast burritos. But even when combining sales and coupons sometimes it is hard to find a stellar deal on it. Average price where I live for breakfast sausage is about $1.50-$2.00 a lb. after sale & coupon. Of course, prices can vary greatly based on where you live, but this is just not an item that I ever can get super cheap.

Plus the ingredient list on most store bought sausages contain things like high fructose corn syrup, MSG, sodium nitrate and other artificial flavorings and preservatives. I am also a firm believer in grinding your own meat. Mass ground beef, pork, chicken and turkey come from multiple animals so the risk of contamination is higher for things like E. Coli, salmonella and other funky bugs that can really make you sick. When you grind your own there is just a little less risk.

Plus homemade sausage just TASTES better and it really is not hard to make at all. You just take some pork and some seasonings and grind it up and voila! You have breakfast sausage! Once you taste this sausage I think you will be hard pressed to go back to the store bought version and the money savings is just an added bonus.

But let’s touch base on how this recipe saves you money because it does, at least for me it does. Like I mentioned above, even after sale and coupon the cheapest I can usually get breakfast sausage is $1.50-$2.00 per pound. Pork makes up the bulk of the cost of your sausage and if I watch the sales prices I can usually get a nice pork butt or shoulder roast for under a $1.00 per pound. Then you have the cost of spices. Now the spices and herbs used in this sausage recipe are all spices I usually already have on hand but if you have to go buy spices then that is going to be a bit more expensive as an initial outlay of cost but keep in mind you are using very little in the way of spices and herbs so a jar is going to last you a long time. I figure that if I watch for good prices on pork and factor in the cost for spices I end up paying about $1.10 per pound. Which is pretty good and considering I know exactly what is in my sausage and that this sausage tastes so very yummy I think it is a keeper!

Special Equipment

To grind your meat you are going to need a meat grinder. I personally use a meat grinder attachment for my Kitchen-Aid stand mixer. But you can also use a hand cranked meat grinder or a stand-alone electric meat grinder. This can be a bit of an investment but if you plan on making your own breakfast sausage or grinding your own hamburger, turkey, etc. it is worth the investment and you will eventually save the money spent on your meat grinder purchase. Also keep your eyes out at yard sales, thrift stores and consignment stores for a bargain on a used one. Where I live there are a lot of hunters so we often see meat grinders’ second hand.

Homemade Breakfast Sausage

Cut your pork into about 1 inch cubes. While it is tempting to remove all of the fat from your pork, don’t. The fat is crucial to a good tasting sausage. It looks like a lot of fat in the picture but when you cook it, it is actually leaner than store bought.
Homemade Breakfast Sausage - Step 1 Next, gather your spices. herbs, brown sugar and salt. Those little red packets are red pepper flakes from when we order pizza at Papa Johns. I only used some from one packet..but if you like it spicy go for it!
Homemade Breakfast Sausage - Step 2In a small bowl mix your spices.
Homemade Breakfast Sausage - Step 3Mix your spice mixture with your cubed pork, cover and refrigerated for 4 hours or overnight.
Homemade Breakfast Sausage - Step 4Grind your seasoned pork to your desired coarseness. We prefer a coarse grind on our sausage but if you like it finer, go ahead!
Homemade Breakfast Sausage - Step 5Your final ground sausage!
Homemade Breakfast Sausage - FinishedAt this point your sausage is done. You can either cook it up and use it right away or package it up for storage in your freezer. I put it up in 1 lb. packages in Foodsaver bags. Frozen this way you can expect it to last at least 1 year in the freezer. But I promise, you will eat it well before then it is that tasty!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Have I mentioned that I LOVE FALL? I do, I really do. I love the turning of the leaves, I love little kids in cute costumes with sticky candy smeared faces. I love the smell of a Yankee Candle Autumn Wreath scented candle burning. I love a cup of hot apple cider and I love food made with pumpkin. I always stock up right after Christmas when they put it on clearance and is super cheap (like 50¢ or less per can). But it is starting to get sad in my stockpile…I am down to only 4 cans of pumpkin. But THIS recipe for Pumpkin Cinnamon rolls is worthy I think….for sure!
