There are very few things I love more than a warm batch of homemade granola. I mean, besides Cory and Alea of course. (Sorry guys!) It’s this time of year, as the seasons are changing, the weather is growing colder that I start getting the urge to bake yummy, not-so-good-for-me treats. ‘Tis the season for baking sugar-ridden treats, cookies, breads, and other desserts– that’s just the way it goes! If you get that urge as well, but are trying to eat healthier “treats” like I am, then you should try whipping up this batch of homemade granola, too.
It gives you the satisfaction of mixing several ingredients, you still need to use the oven, and it fills your home with a delicious, spicy, sweet aroma. Mmmm! Then when you pull it out of the oven, you have a healthy snack to nibble on for the week.
1. 4 packages of Sahale Snacks® Honey Almonds Glazed Mix
2. 1 cup of coconut flakes
3. 3 cups of oatmeal

7. 1/2 cup of honey

6. Remove granola from the oven and let cool on the pan.
My favorite part of this homemade granola have to be the Sahale Snacks Honey Almonds! It’s such a yummy snack mix on it’s own, but it adds a little something special to granola, as well. Check out the Sahale Snacks Promise page to learn more about their commitment to sustainability and check out all of their delicious flavors and snack offerings here. They’re all so yummy!
I think I might make a couple more batches of this granola once we get closer to Christmas, put it in mason jars, add a tag with the recipe and share it with friends and family as part of their Christmas gift. It would add a nice homemade touch, don’t you think?
Granola is such a versatile snack. You can sprinkle it over Greek yogurt, eat it with coconut or almond milk as a cereal or even just eat it out of a baggie on it’s own for an on-the-go snack. However you choose to eat your granola, this is a delicious recipe that I just know you’re going to love!
What’s your favorite on-the-go snack?
