Peanut Butter Granola

Apologies for my absence.  I lost a doggie, and my heart was too broken to eat.

Well, I was still cooking, anyway, and photographing some meals.  So now, I will have to play catch up, somewhat.

First, I would like to share with you my recipe for Peanut Butter Granola.  My family loves the homemade granola I make, but the peanut butter granola takes it to a whole, new level.  I made this for my daughter's birthday breakfast, and added a few chocolate chips.   LOVE.


  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup oil (I use canola)
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 c. oats
  • 1/4 cup flour (I use whole wheat)
  • splash vanilla

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.  (I use parchment paper.)
  • Combine peanut butter and honey in a bowl and microwave until peanut butter melts (approximately 20 seconds). Stir.
  • Stir cinnamon and vanilla into peanut butter and honey mixture.
  • Mix flour, oats and salt in a separate bowl.
  • Mix wet and dry until the oats are completely covered in peanut butter mixture.

  • Spread out oat mixture onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes until granola is slightly browned, stirring halfway through.

  • Let cool until granola is crunchy.

Sawry! I'm a terrible recipe follower. I generally eyeball everything.

But if I had to guess, I would say it was a half cup of peanut butter and a 1/4 cup of honey.....

Good luck!!
