The Back-to-School Blog Tour & Giveaways! *CLOSED*



Welcome to the The Halton Mom! If you enjoy meal plans, recipes, reviews, and giveways you’ve come to the right place. I want to welcome you to the Back-to-School Blog Tour sponsored by Living My MoMent and The Work at Home Woman.

When I became a part of this tour I started thinking about what my contribution could be and I think I’ve found it. How many of you struggle with after school snacks that are frugal and healthy? I know me too, I’m not too happy about passing out Fruit Roll-Ups or Gummy Bears. My kids love granola and during my quest for the perfect after school snack I found this great recipe!

Sunny Honey Granola 

  •  2 Cups Rolled Oats 
  • ½ Cup Slivered Almonds 
  • ½ Cup Sunflower Seeds 
  • ½ Cup Coconut 
  • ½ Cup Honey 
  • ½ Cup Oil 
  • ¼ cup Raisins, (or Semi Sweet Chocolate Mini Chips) 
  • Non-Stick Vegetable Spray  
Preheat oven 300 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Stir honey and oil in a separate bowl and then combine with oat mixture.
Spread out on a sprayed baking sheet and bake 300 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes, or until golden.
Pour into a clean bowl and stir in raisins.
Enjoy! Big kids love this as much as the little ones! I had to hide this from my husband and my older nephew came by and told me to give the recipe to his Moma. Totally a keeper!
Now that you have a great snack for after school lets enter some giveaways. The Back-to-School Book Tour will run from September 6th-10th.
