Homemade Honey Nut Granola
Crunchy, lightly sweetened with honey, this delicious granola will be sure to give you the nutrition you need to satisfy you at any time of the day. Granola has been known to improve digestion, promote weight loss, reduce cholesterol levels and improve energy levels among many other health benefits.
If you have never tried homemade granola you are in for a treat! It is not only super easy to make, but tastes dramatically better then store bought and is way more economical on your wallet!
Because we have a large family (count 6 kids) we are always trying to make things in bulk that will last a long time… and feed a lot of mouths! I have been making this granola recipe since my youngest was little. (he’s 13 now!)
Honey is our go to sweetener around here (obviously)! We go through a crazy amount each week. We are a little spoiled! This granola has just the right amount of sweetness from the honey and nuttiness from the almonds and coconut. I’m sure it will become a staple in your house as well!
