Cashew Honey Granola

It’s Secret Recipe Club time y’all.

My secret blogger for this month was Helen, the wife, mother, all around fantastic lady behind the blog,  Casa Costello .

After sifting through her fabulous recipe index , I finally decided to make Helen’s Walnut and Honey Granola.

One twist…I substituted cashews for the walnuts :)

Just because I was feeling it.

Y’all…this stuff is addicting.


It’s crunchy, cluster-y, packed with juicy bursts of dried cranberries, with just enough sweetness from the honey.


I have fallen off the snack train lately and this granola does the job.


For reaal.


I saw my parents this weekend and sent them home with some and my dad couldn’t stop eating it!


Not being bossy or anything…but you should make this…maybe today, perhaps?!
