Honey Crystals--Honey Almond Granola

I've been cooking with the Honey Crystals for a while now.  It is really growing on me.  I love how easy and mess free it is to use.  I use honey the most in this recipe.  It is my most favorite granola recipe because it is delicious and super easy to make.  When I use honey powder in this recipe I just dump in the honey Crystals and the water (no messing around with combining them) and it works great.  
When I serve this at a party I put some freeze dried fruit on the top. 

How to substitute Honey Crystals for fresh honey

If you need:
Add this much Honey Crystals
Add this much water
¼ cup Honey
6 Tablespoons Honey Crystals
2 Tablespoons water
1/3  cup Honey
½ cup Honey Crystals
2 ½ Tablespoons water
½ cup Honey
¾ cup Honey Crystals
¼ cup water
1 cup Honey
1 ½ cup Honey Crystals
½ cup water

Honey Almond Granola
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
½ cup Honey Crystals (if using fresh honey use 1/3 cup honey and no water)
2 ½ Tablespoons water
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 350º.
Mix all ingredients, together in a mixing bowl.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.  Spread mixture evenly on the cookies sheet.
Bake mixture for 15 minutes, stirring once in the middle of cooking.
Remove granola from the oven, and stir, and allow it to cool.  Place cool granola in an airtight container.  Granola will keep in your pantry for 2-3 weeks, to extend shelf life store in the freezer.   Serve over homemade yogurt, or on top of oatmeal.
