Lemon Lavender Granola

Granola is such a staple in this house. I love having it in my morning yogurt or to snack on. It is so crunchy, satisfying, and just generally wonderful! With spring here I decided to make a big batch with the flavors of the season in this gorgeous lemon lavender granola. It was really easy to make and with much less sugar and preservatives than the store bought brands!

To start, I simply stirred all of the ingredients together thoroughly in a mixing bowl. There were loads of oats, nuts, pumpkin seeds, raisins, lavender infused honey and lemon juice. It was looking so good already! I laid it out on my lined and well greased sheet tray and baked it for 30 minutes.
After the 30 minutes the lemon lavender granola was looking golden and lovely! I broke it up thoroughly and stirred it around. Then it had to go back into the oven to dry out for 2 hours. I had turned off the oven but the heat stayed in it for a while, which was perfect for making the granola really crunchy in that 2 hours.

After it dried out, I just stored it in an airtight container and I was all set to use it in countless ways! I’ve used it in my yogurt like I mentioned, in pancakes, in oatmeal for some crunch, you name it. Hope you all love it too! It keeps for a while. xoxo

  1. I love homemade granola so much, it’s way better than store bought! I am also loving this flavour combination, it’s so perfect for Spring! I’ve not used lavender in cooking/baking before but I really need to as this looks like the perfect way to start the day!
