Peanut Butter Granola

This stuff is addicting. You can eat it with milk as cereal or put it on yogurt or ice cream, but this granola is so good all by itself. The recipe states that it makes four 1/4 cup servings, but I can guarantee that you will find it very difficult to stop at 1/4 cup! I just might have to make it again soon.
It would make a great gift and really does not take long to make at all, which makes it convenient for when you are short on time. If you want to gift this granola but know of someone with a peanut allergy, I am sure you could substitute another nut butter.
I did notice that this granola did not get as crunchy as store-bought granola, but that was ok with me as it did not affect the quality, in my opinion.
Try this out and let me know how you choose to eat it.

  1. This stuff is delicious! So far I've just been snacking on it by the handful, but I think next time I make it (which will be soon!) I am going to try to put it into ball into muffin tins to make little granola bites. I'm not exactly how sure how well they will hold up so I might have to make a couple modifications, but I think it's worth a try! :)

  2. The granola bites are a great idea! Let me know how they turn out. Maybe a little extra honey would help hold them together?
    So glad you are enjoying it! :)
