Honey Lavender Granola

April 4, 2016

It’s finally spring here in Los Angeles! Everything is in bloom and there are vendors with buckets of flowers back at the farmers markets. Over the weekend, I was inspired by the bunches of fresh lavender I saw and picked one up thinking it would be delicious in homemade granola. The addition of lavender really enhances the granola by giving it a light and floral flavor and a wonderful indigo appearance. It takes no time at all putting it together because you simply pour the ingredients in a bowl, mix and bake. Not to mention, my apartment currently smells delightful after baking a batch!
