Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  3. Q: Are there low-sugar granola options? A: Yes, you can use homemade granola or store-bought low-sugar granola to reduce the sugar content.
  4. Q: Can I use different fruits? A: Yes, pear slices work well as an alternative to apples for a similar texture and flavor.
