Honey Granola

For 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! This is one of my all-time favorite honey recipes. Enjoy!

  1. This is a very good 'basic' recipe which can be changed in any number of ways. I would, however, recommend *not* using quick cooking oats. The flakes are so small that they'll burn more easily. I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Oatmeal. I also found that to keep granola from burning, I had to cook it for 10 minutes, stir (used a flat bottom spatula to scoop up and turn the granola), cooked for 7 more minutes, stirred again, cooked 5 minutes and stirred and then a final 5 minutes. If I had gone longer in between, it would have burned.
