Addictive honey granola

Honey granolaSeriously the best granola you’ll ever have…  You won’t be able to stop!

I got this recipe from my friend Dr. Krysten Desouza, ND.  I’ve now made it 3 times in just 2 weeks and everyone I’ve shared it with has loved it!   

I’ve made a few modifications, like chopping the nuts first, using a pot to melt the liquid ingredients, mixing it all together in a bowl before spreading it out, and using cinnamon and salt for a mix of spicy/salty/sweet.  See my version below.



Addictive honey granola


  • 4 cups gluten-free rolled oats (I used Bob’s Red Mill wheat-free rolled oats)
  • 1 cup raw mixed nuts and seeds (I used pumpkin seeds and walnuts)
  • 1 mashed banana
  • ¼ cup butter, ghee, or coconut oil (I used homemade ghee)
  • ½ cup honey
  • Spices: nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, etc. (I used 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon and sea salt)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Celsius.
  2. Roughly chop nuts and seeds in a food processor.
  3. Mix nuts and seeds with oats and spices in a medium bowl.
  4. In a small pot, heat and melt ghee and honey until thinner liquid.
  5. Transfer mixture to food processor and add mashed banana.
  6. Mix liquids together until smooth.
  7. Pour liquid mixture over dry mixture.
  8. Mix everything together, ensuring all oats are covered and evenly mixed.
  9. Bake at 350C for 20 minutes, gently stirring oats halfway through to prevent burning.
  10. Bake until oats are golden brown, adding a few minutes for crunchier granola.
