Food Storage Recipes: Honey Granola

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

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
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.

    I have to tell you that my son brought home some “national brand” granola and I actually liked it – that is until I saw the price on the small bag. I knew I could do better from scratch and your honey granola recipe is the oven now. I am going home overnight tomorrow and I plan to take half the recipe with me along with yogurt. That being said you should know that up until now I have HATED yogurt my entire life. however I discovered French Vanilla Yogurt and it is like HEAVEN. BTW the only addition I made was some chocolate chips while the granola was coo.ing, because life deserves chocolate

  • I've found them to be fairly interchangeable in recipes, but I used the traditional oats, not the instant.

    Wondering if it's much of a difference to use 2-minute instant oats vs. old-fashioned oats? Thanks!

  • Sounds so good. I have a daughter who is allergic to the bees and raw honey. Sometimes she can have a little but you never know, its too risky. I love honey taffy, but when you cook it better have the screens on doors and windows, as it brings the bees!
