My kids and hubby have been snacking on them for a couple of days now, they are really addicting. Today my husband texted me to hide those away from him, because simple he cannot stop 😋 😋.Kids wanted to help me in this post so they did almost everything. I wrote down the ingredients, they measured, started adding them together and did the video shooting, that’s why the video is shaking 😄, what a great team I have 👍 .
I was really proud of them, although I was a little skeptical as they might mess everything up, but I trusted them and they did everything , under my supervision of course, they were thrilled waiting for the result and so was I.
When everything was done they waited impatiently for the granola to cool down, it smelled heavenly good in the oven.They all gave it a thumbs up, it is sweet, nutty, chewy and so addicting. It is not your healthiest choice but at least it is homemade, so that is an advantage by itself. So let’s see with a less shaky photos.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine brown butter, sugar, honey, vanilla and water. Bring to a boil then turn off heat.
In a deep bowl, mix nuts, oats, cinnamon, almond flour and a pinch of salt. Mix everything well together then carefully add the honey mixture, stir to combine.
In a rimmed baking sheet, spread the mixture evenly and press with the back of a spoon. Bake in a 350F pre heated oven for 25 minutes or almost 40 minutes for a more crunchy bites.
Take it out and let it cool down until you are able to handle. Have fun breaking them into little bites and do not forget to eat the crumbs, it is delicious. They will probably be crispier at the edges and little chewier as you get to the middle. Eat them with yogurt, add cold milk, pack in lunchboxes, snack on them or eat them as a dessert after dinner. In all cases, you’ll find them super delicious and great anytime of the day.
