Honey Nut Granola
Delicious, golden and crunchy homemade honey nut granola is perfect for an easy and healthy breakfast or snack. Sweetened with honey and filled with macadamia, hazelnuts and coconut, this is the perfect easy recipe to make ahead, ready for busy weekday mornings.
Servings 8 servings
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 - 1 ½ cups roughly chopped nuts (I used unsalted macadamias and hazelnuts)
- ¼ cup coconut flakes
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ cup honey
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a large baking tray with baking paper.
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, nuts, coconut flakes, salt and cinnamon and set aside.
In a small bowl, melt together the honey and coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds. Pour the liquid mixture into the oats, and using a wooden spoon, stir to combine.
Place the oat mixture into the tray evenly and press down with the back of the wooden spoon. Bake for 20 minutes, mixing halfway through and again, pressing the mixture back down.
Once the mixture is golden brown, remove from the oven and let the tray sit to cool. Don’t touch it until it has cooled as this is what allows clusters to form. Once cool, break the granola apart and store in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks.
