Recipe of the Week – Granola with Honey

Welcome to our first Recipe of the Week!  Our goal this year is to share a new recipe with you each week… do you think we can do it?!  This week we are featuring our honey!  We produce our own honey here at Marlin’s, and it is so tasty!  We’ve had bee hives for about 9 years, and every year we learn more and more about the practice of beekeeping.  Honeybees are amazing creatures!

We hope you enjoy this week’s recipe, which is our family granola recipe.  This granola recipe is sweetened with our honey – it’s the perfect healthy and sweet treat!  We make it in our house once a week… it’s so easy and it is something for the whole family to enjoy!

Marlin’s Granola


3 cups oatmeal
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup chopped raw almonds
1/2 cup white honey
1/4 cup of oil (any oil will do)
1/4 cup of water


Preheat oven to 300 F.  Add oatmeal, coconut, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and almonds to a large bowl and mix.  In a separate bowl, mix together honey, oil and water.  Add this honey mixture to the bowl of dry ingredients and stir until everything is coated.  Spread out the mixture on a baking sheet and put it in the oven for one hour.  During this time in the oven, stir the granola every 15 minutes.  This will prevent any burning.  After one hour, remove the granola from the oven and let it sit and cool.  Stir it again and let it sit out on the counter for 2-3 hours, until it dries.  Once the granola has dried, store it in a glass container.  Tip: Can be stored in the fridge to keep fresh.

Enjoy!  This granola is great for snacking on, or used as a topping on yogurt or cereal.
