Lightly floral with sweet blueberries and honey
This Honey Lavender Blueberry Granola includes a classic combination of lavender and blueberry paired with old-fashioned oats accented in a warmly-spiced honey glaze. Nuts and seeds give this granola added texture and a bit of coconut oil helps the oats crisp to golden perfection. Simple to assemble and bake and even easier to devour quickly -- this lightly floral granola is always welcome on my counter for easy breakfasts and afternoon snacks!
What kind of nuts and seeds should I use for granola?
I chose to use pecans, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds when making this particular batch of granola, but I'm just as likely to utilize other nuts and seeds when I make this recipe; it really just depends on what I have on hand at the time. This granola recipe is pretty flexible, so choose a combination of your favorite nuts and seeds. Some of my other favorite options are almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews, and pepitas (pumpkin seeds).
I can't find dried blueberries, can I substitute for another dried fruit?
Yes, if dried blueberries aren't easily accessible to you where you live, this recipe is also really nice with dried currants or cranberries. I'm tempted to chop up some dried apricots or peaches as well because I think those would be really lovely.
How should I serve this granola?
- My absolute favorite way to serve this Honey Lavender Blueberry Granola is in a parfait with yogurt and fresh fruit -- Fresh blueberries, peaches, raspberries, strawberries, or bananas are my go-to
- You can also enjoy with yogurt and lemon curd and/or preserves

A note for special diets
This Honey Lavender Blueberry Granola can be made friendly for gluten-free and vegetarian diets. Though oats are generally gluten-free in their original form, there can be gluten contamination from the processing facility. If you are gluten-intolerant, I recommend using oats that have specifically been labeled certified gluten-free.
This Honey Lavender Blueberry Granola includes a classic combination of lavender and blueberry paired with old-fashioned oats accented in a warmly-spiced honey glaze. Nuts and seeds give this granola added texture and a bit of coconut oil helps the oats crisp to golden perfection.
- 340 g (about 4 cups) old-fashioned oats
- 130 g (about 1 cup) pecans (may sub for almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews)
- 71 g (about ½ cup) sunflower seeds (may sub for pepitas/pumpkin seeds)
- 43 g (about ¼ cup) chia seeds (optional)
- 7 oz (about 200 g) dried blueberries
- 2 tbsp dried culinary lavender
- 216 g (about ⅔ cup) honey
- 71 g (about ⅓ cup) coconut oil, melted
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- ¼ tsp ground cardamom
- ⅛ tsp ground cloves
- 1 tsp Kosher salt
- Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F / 150 C. Line a baker's half sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking liner and reserve to the side.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, pecans, sunflower and chia seeds, blueberries, lavender, honey, coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, cloves, and salt (all of the ingredients) using a sturdy wooden or silicone spoon or spatula.
- Once evenly combined, spread the mixture out onto your reserved baking sheet in a reasonably even layer.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, turning with a spatula every 10-minutes to help ensure even browning. It should look lightly golden and glossy when done. The mixture will still be soft right out of the oven but will crisp as it cools.
