This healthy granola is super crispy, nutty, and so delicious! It's naturally sweetened with honey and of course has all the clusters!
Is there anything better than freshly baked homemade granola? And not just the taste and the crunch—there is NO smell like granola fresh from the oven.
I already posted a peanut butter date granola recipe, but this time I really felt like one of the classic flavors: honey nut! Unlike the store-bought ones, this recipe uses no refined sugar—just honey! This also means that it’s not overly sweet and you get all the honey flavor.
You can also customize what kinds of nuts and seeds you want based on what you like or have. This is a very versatile recipe, so if you need to change something that is totally okay!
And of course I have to mention the crispiness and the clusters!! Just a few simple tricks and you can have the crispiest granola, plus you can choose how big you want your clusters (if you don’t want them that’s ok too!)
Crispy Honey Nut Granola
- 3 cups rolled oats gluten free
- ¾ cup sliced almonds
- ½ cup halved cashews
- ½ cup chopped walnuts or any nut
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons flax seeds
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon optional
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup honey
- ⅓ cup avocado oil or light-tasting olive oil
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients (oats, almonds, cashews, walnuts, chia, flax, cinnamon, salt). Toss them in oil. Add the honey and vanilla and mix until fully combined.
- Transfer to the prepared sheet pan, spreading evenly throughout. If you want clusters, pack it slightly (but make sure it's flat) so that it bakes as one whole sheet. Otherwise, spread it out. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Let it cool for about 20 minutes before breaking, then break into clusters (or into smaller pieces; however you like!)
