Honey Bear After School Snack

Celebrating National Honey Month

This post is sponsored by the National Honey Board, however the content and opinions expressed are my own.

Last week my baby started Pre-Kindergarten. Time is going fast, and I’m determined to savor these golden moments I still have with her at home with some special, 1:1 time.. Since she is getting to be such a big girl, I thought it would be fun to have a special tea party with her, letting her make a new recipe, a Honey Bear after school snack, all by herself.

You see, she is so excited to go to her bumblebee themed classroom a few 1/2 days per week,  and lamented on the first day she didn’t have a bee costume to wear 😂

Then, this weekend,we were especially excited to have guests who just started bee keeping. We enjoyed all their stories and pictures, and even got one of their first bottles of honey as a hostess gift. As a result, the kids are pretty sure we should start beekeeping, too (um, no.).

So, it felt especially serendipitous when I received a golden box of goodies from the National Honey Board to inspire us to celebrate National Honey Month with some honey, beautiful party decorations and easy, kid-friendly recipes.Honey Bear After School Snack | Five Marigolds

Simple Skinny Granola Recipe

Today I’m sharing my very favorite granola recipe: sweet, slightly crunchy, and very addictive, you’ll find yourself making this again and again.  I’ll show you how to make it with, and without oil.

I started making this recipe after combining a variety of my favorites over the years. My favorite use of granola is with milk as a cereal or to top my yogurt, and the sweet flavor of this recipe is perfect for either use.

But the texture. I love the texture of this granola! I hate the too-crunchy store-bought variety. This recipe is somewhere in between – just the right amount of crunch.Simple and Skinny Granola Recipe With or Without Oil | Five Marigolds
