After I wrote up our All About Honey post last week Julie mocked me saying “I don’t think I know anyone who loves honey as much as you do!” Well I’m afraid it is probably the truth. So I may be a bit over-enthused but I was TOTALLY excited to try this recipe!
I meant for this to be a Sunday night treat for the family but the night got too busy and I ended up cooking it at midnight after the kids were in bed and my hubby was off to work an overnight shift. Needless to say I’m not TOO sad that I get to sit and enjoy eating it myself while I type up this post 🙂 So here is the infamous Honey Granola recipe I got from Cox Honeyland with my personal modifications included.
Sorry for the poor quality picture, I couldn’t find the computer cord for my good camera!
Yummy Honey Granola
4 c. oats
1 c. craisins
2 c. chopped peanuts
1/2 c. butter (can sub with applesauce)
3/4 c. Pomegranate flavored honey (mmmm)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. cinnamon
dash of salt
Mix together the oats, craisins and peanuts and set aside. In a small pot combine butter, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Bring to a boil for 1 minute. Pour the liquid mixture over the oat mixture and stir it in really well. Spread onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring every 5 minutes or so. Let the granola cool, crumble it up and store in an airtight container at room temperature to keep it delicious.
