Crunchy Honey Nut Granola
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
- 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)
- 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
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.
Materials: oats, hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, sesame, honey, raisins, cinnamon
Storage and shelf life
You can store the honey nut granola in a dry place at room temperature for up to six months.
Print the labels
Print the labels on DIN A4 or letter size sticker paper or self-adhesive paper and cut out along the grey outline. Remove the backing of the paper and adhere to the designated lid or container. The labels come in three different sizes giving you many options when choosing a jar or container.
