Homemade Peanut Butter Granola

I have found the ultimate recipe for homemade Peanut Butter Granola.  It's so easy and makes a great nutritious snack for not only the kids but adults as well.  I've added a few extra ingredients to this recipe and the next time plan to add a few more.

Here is the basic recipe:

2 Cups Old Fashioned Oats (not quick serve)

1/4 Cups Creamy Peanut Butter (I wondered if Extra Crunchy Peanut Butter would work and I think I will try it the next time)

1/4 Cups Honey

2 Tablespoons packed light-brown sugar

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Pour oats into a mixing bowl, set aside (I added a teaspoon of cinnamon and two handfuls of dried cherries and cranberries to the oats). In a microwave safe mixing bowl (or it can be melted in a saucepan), combine peanut butter, honey, and brown sugar and heat mixture in microwave or pan until runny and smooth, about 25 seconds. Pour mixture over oats in mixing bowl and toss mixture with a spatula until evenly coated.

Spread mixture onto a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet into an even layer and bake in a preheated oven until golden brown, 18-20 minutes, stirring once halfway through baking.  I inadvertently skipped stirring halfway through) Allow to cool completely (it won't be crunchy until it cools) and store in an airtight container.

It is delicious!!  I broke my granola by hand into small bite size pieces.  This is a great recipe and I think next time I will add some pecans and maybe some coconut.

Bon Appetit!
