Peanut Butter and granola – make it today!

I made just about the easiest granola I have ever made this weekend.  4 ingredients!  How easy is that?  (ok – i added one more to hubby’s – he has to have raisins in just about everything he eats).

This peanut butter granola is so good, you will find yourself munching on it as a snack!  Next time I make this I am adding some chocolate chips and chopped pecans to my batch – hubby can keep his raisins!  

Here’s the handy dandy recipe – did i mention how easy these 4 ingredients are?

 

Peanut Butter Granola

2 cups old fashioned oats

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1/4 cup honey

2 Tbsp packed light brown sugar (note: I used my  Splenda Brown sugar – worked fine!)

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Pour oats in to mixing bowl, set aside.

2.  In a microwaveable mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, honey and brown sugar and heat in microwave until runny and smooth, about 25-40 seconds, stirring once during process.   You can also use a small saucepan and add peanut butter, honey and brown sugar and heat on medium until just runny and smooth, stirring while heating.  Pour mixture over oats and stir until oats are evenly coated.

3.  Spread mix onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet in an even layer and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes, stirring once halfway through baking.  Allow to cool completely (it won’t get crunchy until it is cooled), and store in an airtight container.   

 

I store mine in mason jars, as you can see.   I love my mason jars!   Make yours and let us know what you serve yours on.  Happy Monday!
