Cinnamon Honey Granola

I’ve mentioned a time or two that I try to limit our processed foods as much as I can. While that’s not always easy to do, one way I am able to accomplish it is doing a little meal prep each week and relying on simple recipes for a few of our favorites! One of my “make every week” recipes is this super-simple Cinnamon Honey Granola! It is honestly one that my husband requests each week, and it literally takes under 5 minutes to prepare (as long as my little one is cooperating) and a bit of time to bake.Love granola but tired of the store-bought variety with all the extras in it?

The recipe is based on an easy 6:1 ratio – 6 cups of dry ingredients to 1 cup of wet ingredients.

One of my focuses is living healthy, but let’s just say we indulge around here once in a while, and when we do, 9 times out of 10, it’s on my homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Now that we have that out of the way, let’s get down to business. I know we all have a different view of what makes the perfect chocolate chip cookie, but hands down I’ve had more good reviews from this cookie recipe than any other I use.

With that being said, I’m willing to share the recipe and my chocolate chip cookie baking tips with you keeping in mind that my favorite kind of cookie (and the favorite of many of our family members and friends) is one that is slightly crunchy on the inside but still a little soft and melty on the inside.
