On the Menu: Lavender Granola

Breakfast is one of the hardest meals for me to take the time to make and eat. This past fall Eric and I started making our own homemade granola – it’s easy and you can put whatever you love in it. But I found that making it made me see all of the sugar that went into it. That’s when I turned to Susan of Peas and Love for a new and healthier version of what I was making. This delicious Lavender Granola is a burst of spring in your mouth and topped with some berries it makes my heart sing. Hope you enjoy this as much as Susan and I did last Saturday!

Lavender Granola



2 cups Oats 1/4 cup Flax Seeds 3/4 Nuts of choice or mix them all! (A mix of almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds) 1 tsp Vanilla 4 Tbsp Honey 1 Tbsp Lavender Buds



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, bring all ingredients together and mix well. Spread evenly on a baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes until golden, dry and toasty. Let cool, then transfer to a mason jar to store. Serve over yogurt and top with fresh berries and a drizzle of honey.
