Honey Almond Flax Granola
(This post is sponsored by Fisher Nuts.)
I can not even tell you how often my kids ask me to make granola. They love the stuff, and I have to say, it makes me both happy and proud as a mom to see them picking on a bowl of granola as an afternoon snack. This Honey Almond Flax Granola is my latest granola creation and the kids and I went through it quickly over the weekend.
February is Heart Health month and I am happy to have partnered up with Fisher Nuts once again to bring you this heart healthy breakfast or snack recipe your whole family will love. My children’s heart health (and health is general) is obviously a priority to me so I know that the more I teach them to take care of their hearts and bodies at a young age – by nourishing themselves with good food and staying active – the better the chances are of them having healthy lifestyles as adults. What more can you ask for really? I do believe that it really is up to us as parents to set a good example and guide them.
Did you know? Fisher has 9 nut products certified by the American Heart Association (AHA) as heart healthy. Fisher Nuts are preservative free and good for you!
This Honey Almond Flax Granola recipe is chock full of good stuff – oats, almonds, flax, and chia seeds combined with honey and coconut oil. Simple ingredients, and so easy to make. That’s definitely a good thing because a jar of granola does not last very long in my house, that’s for sure.

- 1 cup whole Fisher almonds, roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup flax seeds
