We ran out of granola! My hubby eats it with his plain yogurt and frozen berries for breakfast and I eat it like cereal with milk for breakfast. We’ve found that you can beat the price from the bulk bins at Winco Grocery store for granola. The problem- Winco is 90 miles away! So I searched on Pinterest and came across this blog” The Granola Chronicles. This isn’t a blog dedicated to granola, but rather a “granola” lifestyle-simple, healthy and outdoors. Her recipe for Peanut butter honey granola sounded right up my alley, I love peanut butter and honey!
I made a minor modification to suit our needs (and pantry) here you go:
PB & Honey Granola:
- 4 cups Oats
- 1/2 C Honey
- 1/2 C Peanut butter (I used creamy, but I think crunchy would work fine)
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
In a microwave safe dish place everything but the oats and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. In a large bowl place oats and pour PB mixture over and mix. Pour onto a prepared baking sheet and put into the oven. Turn oven on to 300 degrees for 25 minutes (do not preheat). Stir every 10 minutes or so. At 25 minutes turn oven off and leave granola in for 15 more minutes. (That’s a total of 35 minutes in the oven and about 3 stirs). Pull out of the oven and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
It’s pretty darn tasty and now I’m going to have to try some other granola recipes! A great way to use the oats we have in our food storage!
