- 2/3 cup Toasted Coconut Flakes
- 1 cup Almond flakes
- 3 cups of Rolled Oats

Hello honey lovers! This will be our third NZ honey based recipe coming through that makes the most of the benefits of honey and it couldn’t have come at the most perfect time. With the kids being back at school they are sure to love eating this honey oat recipe before they’re off to conquer the world. There's nothing better than recipes with natural ingredients and you will love this recipe with raw honey fresh out of the hive!
So here we go! Before we start, make sure the oven is pre-heating at 150 degrees Celcius.
Start by roughly chopping up the dried apricots and add to that the oats, coconut flakes, almond flakes, sugar and flaky sea salt. Mix them up and add Lili's NZ honey and oil mixing through the dry ingredients with the wet. I prefer sunflower oil but canola also works beautifully or anything else that you might fancy that does not have a very strong aroma.
Lay that mixture on a cookie tray layered with a baking sheet. Put it in the pre-heated oven and leave in for 25-35 minutes until golden brown. As sweet as our honey is, keep an eye on it while it is in the oven as you don’t want it to get too dark and start tasting burnt and bitter.
Once you see it has reached that light golden colour take it out of the oven and wait for it to cool completely. Once cool break it apart into the desirable size of clusters and enjoy right away with greek yogurt and fresh fruit, milk or over smoothies. Maybe some more NZ honey! Make sure to save what is leftover in an airtight container so it doesn’t get soggy and stale. Enjoy!
PS: Feel free to double or triple the recipe in order to make more of it if you are a large family. You can store for up to two weeks in an airtight container and it will retain the delicious raw honey flavours among others and crunchiness.
