Honey Nut Granola

Deliciously Golden Honey Nut GranolaI’ve found a new favourite snack: dry honey nut granola straight out of the oven. Just on it’s own and no cutlery, dishes or ladylike table manners involved. It’s addictive! And of course, it’s delicious served with milk or even more so as a dessert topping too (great for crumbles and parfaits!)

There is something about this homemade version, that the store bought version can’t even be compared to. The smell alone is enough to comfort you on the most horrible of mornings… The crunchy, wholesome oats and almonds, coated in the fragrant vanilla, cinnamon and butter. Mmm!

Total time
A delicious crunchy granola that can be eaten for breakfast or as a dessert topping!
Serves: 6
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 200g / ½ cup + 1tbsp light honey
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 300g / 3 + ⅓ cups rolled oats (I used gluten-free oats)
  • 100g / 1 + ¼ cup slivered almonds
  1. Preheat the oven to 170c and line 1-2 large baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt the butter and honey together until it begins to bubble.
  3. Stir in the cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt and then pour in the oats and almonds. Stir the mixture well to make sure it's completely coated.
  4. Transfer to the baking tray(s) and spread the mixture out into a thin layer.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, checking every 5-8 minutes and giving the mixture a stir to make sure it doesn't brown too quickly.
  6. When the oats look crunchy and golden, remove from the oven and allow to cool on the tray.
  7. Keep in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
  8. Enjoy!

    I only recently made granola for the first time and you’re right…there is something so warm and fresh about it that is far better than what you can buy. I adore the simplicity of honey, almonds, and oats.

      It’s definitely going to be something I make often from now on, I’ll have to make a bigger batch next time though as it disappeared too quickly!
