Apple Pie Spice Recipe

Apple Pie Spice is one of my favorite spices to have on hand in my spice rack as I gear up for Fall and holiday recipes. I would say it is a seasonal staple that I just don’t want to be without. I use it in a little bit of everything from spicing up my coffee or hot tea some mornings, granola, to baking pies, cakes, cookies, and even in our slow cooker oatmeal.

We definitely go through it around here.

And did you know that spices are actually really good for you? Especially cinnamon. The Ladies Home Journal cites a 2003 study that found cinnamon protects against Type 2 diabetes as well as heart disease. The study showed that about half a teaspoon lowered blood glucose, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. That’s just enough of a reason to make me even happier to sprinkle a little extra of the apple pie spice in my dishes.

So I knew I just had to share my favorite blend of spices that I use for my apple pie spice recipe with you. It’s so simple to make and keep on hand by storing in a small airtight container.

I generally make a large batch, but you can easily scale the recipe based on how much apple pie spice you plan to use during the season.

Here’s how I make my apple pie spice blend.

    I love all that cinnamon. This is much like a pumpkin spice blend, except it’s missing the cloves.
