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. I JUST (like this week) started buying flax to sneakily add to the hubbies breakfasts, because it’s SO GOOD FOR YOU. And then you posted this, and he just so happens to be obsessed with granola. PERFECT. Pinned!

  2. I love all those ingredients and I usually end up using granola as a snack. 🙂 Pinned!

  3. So yum! I make granola every other week for my Dad and us! Homemade is best!!! I’m going to try your mix next time.

    BTW- made the taco bowls this week and we all loved them! Kaylin even ate the mix !!

  4. Aggie, love granola and almonds are my favorite nut! Will make this to take to FBF2015 this weekend, the girls will love to have something to snack on in between the meals. Thanks for the recipe! Hope to see you there & catch up! We still have to meet at Peach Valley one day.

  5. Yummy! I love having granola around for snacking 😀

  6. Homemade granola is THE BEST! Love your recipe!

  7. I love granola especially in plain yogurt! Isn’t it loaded with fat (and calories)? If it is, I don’t know if I need to be making my own…
    Cute image idea above!

  8. I’m mad for nuts and granola and love how healthy this is! Being gluten-free I could easily adapt with gluten-free oats to make this at home.

  9. oh what a really creative granola, must be delicious

  10. I could eat granola for 3 meals a day! Fisher nuts are my favorite. And I love that this is sweetened with honey!

  11. I make a similar granola literally once a week — we can’t get enough of the stuff! Yours looks fantastic – love the honey with the almonds.

  12. My first time making granola. I could not wait to wake up this morning to eat it in my yogurt. Delicious!

  13. I’ve made granola before and love how easy it is. Had to try yours and it’s so good! Made it just in time for FBF2015 and took it to the hotel & parks with us, the girls couldn’t get enough of it. Making it again, thanks Aggie for the recipe.

  14. I have made several homemade granola recipes before, but this is the BEST! Love that it has flax and chia too. I know I will be making this over and over again. Thanks.
