Orange Blossom Honey Granola

Orange Blossom Honey Granola

The perfect quick energy snack!

Granola is such a versatile snack, and so easy to make. So why do we insist on buying it at the grocery store? These thoughts occurred to me this week and I decided that rather than paying for small batch boxes of granola, I’d try making it myself.

The result was way easier and faster than I’d expected. I even had most of the ingredients in my cupboard already! I used Savannah Bee’s Orange Blossom Honey for its light citrusy notes, then I layered in sliced almonds, oats, and coconut. As I mixed together the ingredients, I started thinking of the myriad ways to use my granola: as an on-the-go snack in baggies, over yogurt, as cereal with sliced bananas and vanilla almond milk – the possibilities were endless.

How will you use your granola?

What You’ll Need:

What You Do:

  1. Mix together the oats, coconut flakes, and almonds in a large bowl.
  2. Mix together the Orange Blossom honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and salt in a separate, smaller bowl.
  3. Combine the two mixtures into the larger bowl and mix thoroughly.
  4. Spread the granola onto a large baking sheet and bake at 300° for about 30 minutes, or until golden in color.
  5. Eat or store for weeks!

Tips:

  • Add in dried fruits, different nuts, or try a different honey like Wildflower or Tupelo. The sky is the limit; you’ll never get tired of this granola when there are so many variations!
  • Add in spices like cinnamon or cardamom for an additional kick.

    I’ve been making granola for a couple of years and love the variety of nuts and dried fruits you can add. I was especially pleased when I got my Winter White Spun Cinnamon honey and used that. It was just enough for a hint of cinnamon without being overpowering. I’ve also used the honey with passion fruit.

    This sounds amazing! I bring granola as a light snack to work all the time and it’s always store bought. I can’t wait to try it and it will probably save me money too!

    I’m addicted to granola, but it’s always full of things that may or may not be so healthy for me. I’m excited to try out this recipe for my breakfast!

    I love the idea of adding cardamom! Maybe even a little curry powder to give a touch of savory to the traditionally sweet granola snack.
