    Store in glass and keeps for a couple weeks. Does it need to be refrigerated? Or just glass container non refrigerated?

      Yes, it will stay good at room temperature in glass (i.e. sealed Mason Jar) for a couple of weeks.

    I love this granola. It is the best I have ever eaten. I make a batch every other week. My husband was never a granola eater, but he adds it to his regular cereal. I add fruit and maybe a dollup of greek yogurt and almond milk.
    Great in the summer when it is too hot for oatmeal.

      Our family loves it with Greek yogurt and fruit as well!

    How do you store it and how long will it last?

    • George Zikos June 10, 2019 at 5:51 pm - Reply

      You can store it in a mason jar or a glass jar. It should stay good for at least a couple weeks and you will notice when it starts to go stale. Let me know if you make it!
