Almond-Cherry-Lavender Crunch

Almond-Cherry-Lavender Crunch


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon dried lavender*
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup sliced almonds 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

* Lavender can be found at specialty food and health food stores and culinary websites. If you are unable to find lavender then substitute 2 teaspoons of lemon zest for the dried lavender.


Place butter, honey and lavender in a medium saucepan and warm over medium heat. Once butter has melted, turn off the heat, stir mixture and let it steep for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a sided sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper.

Add rolled oats, cherries, almonds and salt to butter mixture and stir well. Spread mixture evenly on the sheet pan. Bake 20-30 minutes, until golden brown, stirring at least once to ensure even browning. Let cool 10 minutes before eating. Store airtight for up to 1 week.
