One of my recent cravings has been granola and yogurt. I could eat this every day. I decided to make some of my own homemade granola in my favorite flavor honey almond. I love this combo of granola and yogurt. It is literally my favorite snack right now.
We had a bunch of nuts and seeds stocked in our pantry, so I thought it was the perfect time to make this recipe and have a hearty and healthy snack on hand here at home.
This tastes great with milk, over yogurt (my personal fave), or with some fruit. I added chia seeds, chopped pecans, and oatmeal, sunflower seeds, and peanut butter.
This Honey Almond and Chia Seed Easy Homemade Granola is packed with protein and omega-3’s and is also delicious. Score for a yummy treat and hiding essential nutrients from those picky eaters! (My kid hates chia seeds, but didn’t notice them in this granola!)
This yummy and easy granola uses most items you probably already have in your pantry. It makes a nice amount of granola, probably 8-10 servings, maybe a little more. I stored mine in an airtight large ball jar.
I love the chew and honey almond flavor. The brown sugar, butter, and peanut butter make super delicious and nutty taste. We couldn’t stop eating this after it came out of the oven.
This is a fantastic granola to make as a gift or to take to a brunch or bake sale.
