Peanut Butter Granola

Peanut Butter Granola

When I was younger my absolute favorite cereal was Reese’s Puffs. Seriously so good. And I couldn’t even tell you the last time I had them, it’s been like 15 years, at least. I just cannot buy them. First, they are loaded with sugar, but second and more importantly, I will eat the whole box in like 1 day. I’m not even kidding.

If there is anyway to incorporate peanut butter into my breakfast, I am all about it! This peanut butter granola is perfect over some vanilla yogurt or with some milk. And of course you have throw in some mini chocolate chips because peanut butter and chocolate is the best thing ever.

Oh, and as you can see from my photos, I like the big chunks of granola. You know the biggest chunks are the best ones. Don’t even try to tell me they’re not!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Optional: sliced almonds, raisins, chocolate chips, dried fruit

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, stir in the peanut butter and the honey and heat tor about 30 seconds until the peanut butter and the honey are melted. Remove from the microwave and stir together. Mix in the oats until they are all well-coated with the peanut butter and honey mixture.
  3. Spread evenly onto the baking sheet and bake for about 5 minutes. If your oven tends to cook things more quickly, I recommend stirring the granola about halfway through. Remove from the oven and let the granola cool completely. Once cooled, break the larger chunks into smaller bite-sized pieces. Store in an air-tight container.
