rFor three years while I was attending school at Utah State University, I worked for the cutest company called Cox Honeyland.
Day after day, I worked with delicious, golden honey. Bottling it, pouring it, and tasting it!
I fell in love with the sweet, rich taste of a spoonful of honey, and all the other by-products: honey popcorn, honey butter, honey sticks, honey comb, and my favorite – honey granola.
I knew it was going to be a good day when there was a bag of honey granola involved!
We love using this to top yogurt, smoothies, and fruit. It tastes incredible with applesauce too!

Ingredients for Honey Granola
This granola can be adjusted to fit your family’s preference. Here’s what we mixed into ours:
- Shredded Coconut
- Chopped Pecans
- Sesame Seeds
- Salt, Cinnamon, Vanilla
- Honey – Make this recipe your own and add your favorite honey. To cut out some sugar, use raw honey.
- Vegetable Oil – This is helps the granola cook together with a crunch! Coconut oil can be substituted in this recipe as well.
- Dried Apples – These go great with the cinnamon and honey in the recipe. If you don’t like dried apples, any other dried fruit would work!
We recommend using old fashioned oats in this recipe. Quick oats would work, but tend to burn faster in the oven due to their smaller size. Old fashioned work best!
Sweetened or unsweetened coconut works great. If you’d like to keep this granola on the healthy side, you’ll want to use unsweetened.
You can choose any nut you’d like! Chopped pecans is our favorite, but this would be great with chopped peanuts or sliced almonds.
Sesame seeds may not seem like your usual granola ingredient but trust us! It tastes delicious!
Delicious spices and flavorings bring this crunchy granola together when baked!
When you get to this point, you’ll want to prep your granola on two baking sheets. Don’t add your apples yet! They’ll be tossed in at the end. We have two baking sheets listed in the directions. This will make sure your granola evenly bakes.
Once baked, break up your granola with a fork or spoon. Some pieces may stick together and that’s okay, they will be crunchy and delicious! Add your apples, and you’re good to go!
