Crunchy Honey Nut Granola

Sep 3, 2017 | Cooking, Free Printables, Gift Giving

Our crunchy honey nut granola is sure to give a boost of energy in the morning and a nourishing school day breakfast for kids. A delectable mix of nuts, oats, sesame seeds, and honey are roasted to crunchy-sweet perfection. Other than our triple chocolate granola or forest berry granola, this granola isn’t baked in the oven but roasted on the stove. You’ll love the warm and sweet smell of honey, cinnamon, caramelising sugar and roasted nuts that fills the kitchen when preparing the granola. And if you manage not to eat the entire batch straight out of the pan as we did, you can gift the granola and package it with cute printable labels, which you can download at the end of the post.

Honey Nut Granola

We added dried raisins to our honey nut granola. Other dried fruits, such as apricots, apples or bananas, also make great add-ins.

Prep Time: 30 min

Cooking Time: 10 – 15 minutes

Materials

  • 140 g (1 1/2) cups rolled oats
  • 140 g (1 cup) sesame seeds
  • 140 g (1 cup) mixed nuts (We used slivered almonds, chopped hazelnuts, halved peanuts, and walnuts.)
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) sunflower, canola or melted coconut oil
  • 50 g (1/4) brown sugar or cane sugar
  • 80 g (1/4 cup) dark honey
  • 40 g (1/4 cup) raisins (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • printable label (see below)

Tools

  • kitchen scale or measuring cups and spoons
  • large mixing bowl
  • large spoon
  • cooking spoon
  • large, heavy-bottom sauce pan
  • kitchen towels or oven mitts
  • storing jar or airtight container

Instructions

1) Roast the grains and nuts

Add the rolled, oats, nuts, sesame seeds, brown sugar, raisins, honey, oil, and cinnamon into a heavy-bottom sauce pan. Roast over low flame until the sugar has melted and caramelised, and the oats and nuts are completely coated, which takes 10 to 15 minutes. Stir constantly, so the granola doesn’t burn to the bottom of the pan.

 

2) Cool and package the granola

Stir the granola every 5 minutes while cooling so that the granola base doesn’t lump together. Once cooled, transfer the honey nut granola into clean and dry jars or storage containers.

Difficulty: easy

Materials: oats, hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, sesame, honey, raisins, cinnamon
