Because I LOVE Honey!!! Enjoy :-)

I looove honey for so many reasons – I add a spoonful to everything from my morning coffee to my favorite chili. So when thinking about breakfast its a no brainer!!!


I thought I’d share one of my favorite breakfast recipes where honey takes center stage. I have a feeling I’m not the only one out there with a major weakness for granola.




Serves 4 cups of granola


  • 2 cups rolled oats (gluten-free)
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons flaxmeal
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup golden raisins or mulberries
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • for serving: yogurt, berries, honey, coconut flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients through the cinnamon. Use your hands to make sure everything is very well coated by the coconut oil and honey.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then spread the granola in an even layer.
  3. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes at 275, then raise  the temperature to 350 and bake another 15 minutes or until the granola is golden and toasted. Set aside to cool — it will get crispier as it cools.
  4. Serve with yogurt, fruit, and honey!



Hope you fall as madly in love with honey as I :-)
