How This Beekeeper Uses Our Honey

We harvest honey from our beehives in the fall. Which is the perfect season to bake up a fresh batch of this delicious and naturally sweet granola. I eat it over yogurt bowls, with some fresh fruit.   And Brett actually adds a big scoop of granola on top of his oatmeal… for double oat power.

Last year we our hives were so productive, we actually were able to harvest honey 3 different times in the season! We had plenty of honey to give away to our family and friends, to sell, and also to keep a little for ourselves. We like the darkest honey best, so we saved a few extra jars for us for a rainy day!

What’s In This Granola With Honey Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Old Fashioned Oats: I used old fashioned oats for this recipe. I found old fashioned oats work much better than quick oats, as they hold up really well while being baked.
  • Raw Honey: straight from the beehives! As a beekeeper, I have plenty of raw honey on hand.  I’d recommend getting beeswax from a local beekeeper, apiary, or farmer’s market.
  • Almonds: I love adding these almonds to my recipe for a nutty crunchy bite!  You can keep them whole or crush them before adding.  I like getting these raw unsalted almonds so I can also make almond milk at home with any pieces.
  • Walnuts: for a wonderful crunchy and texture!
  • Coconut Oil
  • Flaxseed Meal: I always add a scoop in my oatmeal for a little extra nutritional punch!  This flaxseed meal a wonderful nutty flavor too.
  • Cinnamon: which gives this granola is classic spice-y flavor!  I love to load it on!
  • Vanilla Extract: it’s super important to use real pure vanilla extract, and not artificial baking vanilla flavor. This real all natural vanilla is a fantastic ingredient to give this granola an #extra boost.
  • Dried Cranberries: I added a handful of dried cranberries, but you can add your favorite dried fruit that you keep on hand.  Just dice it small first.
