Easy Homemade Honey Almond Granola

Hands up who likes a little crunchy granola in the morning? Or even as a cheeky snack at any time of the day? I know I do, but the real downside to granola is, how much sugar is in it. Shop bought granola is packed full of all kinds of hidden sugar not like this Easy Homemade Honey Almond Granola. The only sweetener is a little bit of honey and some semi-dried apricots. So read on to find out how to make this super easy homemade honey almond granola.

Sweet Honey.

I have kept all refined sugars out of this recipe. Usually, I add a little brown sugar to my homemade granolas but this time I kept it out. Which does stop this granola from being too sweet. But the 2 tablespoons of honey help to give this easy homemade honey almond granola just the right amount of sweetness. And you can always add a little more on top if you wish.

Nutty Almonds.

For crunch and to add some little heart-healthy natural fats I added in some flaked almonds. Almonds pair so well with honey and apricots, almost like natural bedfellows! To boost the almond flavour further I used almond extract, but in a pinch, if you don’t have any then feel free to use vanilla extract in its place. But I highly recommend using almond extract if you can.

I also added a sprinkling of sesame seeds to the mix. They add a gentle sweet nuttiness to the overall flavour of this easy homemade honey almond granola and a little crunch too.

 

To make it super crunchy and clumpy I added an egg white. This is made safe by baking in the oven, but if you have any concerns then please use ready pasteurised egg whites.
