Blueberry Kasha and Honey Homemade Granola

Blueberry Kasha Honey Granola //

I’m so in love with this homemade granola recipe.  I’ve been making my own for a long time (because it’s dead simple), and with an abundance of honey, because…beekeeper, it’s so much nicer to make my own.

Homemade Granola Packed with Antioxidants

First of all, it tastes really really good.  Raw honey adds such great flavour to this homemade granola.  Just to add to it’s goodness, it’s also chalk full of antioxidants and vitamins and minerals compared to lighter honey.  And, as if that wasn’t enough, it also has anti-inflammatory  and anti-bacterial benefits, which is why people often take a spoonful to help with an awful cough.

I also love the addition of kasha in here.  Essentially, kasha is roasted and hulled buckwheat kernels.  It’s very high in fibre and overall just a good thing for your gut health.  And again, in this homemade granola it takes on a slightly nutty, sweet flavour that pairs so well with dried blueberries.

But all the benefits of granola aside, friends this is a really yummy snack.  And I often find myself grabbing a handful at the witching hour just around dinner time where I have the serious munchies and need something to tie me over.  It’s also a dream on a bowl full of greek yogurt for a mid-morning snack or dare I say, a healthier take on dessert.

Feel free to customize this super easy homemade granola recipe to suit your needs.  Add whatever nuts or seeds you have in your pantry, just be sure to add the same quantity that the recipe calls for.  Happy snacking!
