Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Preheat oven to 325°
Combine rolled oats, wheat germ and almonds in a large bowl.
In a small pan bring to a boil honey, orange zest, orange juice and cinnamon. Drizzle over oat mixture and toss until coated.
Spray a 15x10x1-inch baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Spread oat mixture evenly onto baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven; stir in coconut and bake for another 15 minutes until granola is golden brown, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and cool. Store in an airtight container.
