Granola is one of those versatile foods that can taste great on a lot of things. You can add this granola to vanilla yogurt, eat it with low-fat milk, or on its own. Our favorite way to eat this granola is to core an apple, spread a thin layer of peanut butter on it, and sprinkle a little granola on top. It’s a great sweet tooth fix and afternoon snack! This granola is healthier than other granolas because it isn’t swimming in added oils or sugars. This recipe also adds fiber to your diet from the oats which can aid digestion.
Peanut Butter Granola
1/4 C creamy peanut butter
1/4 C honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 C oats (I used old-fashioned rolled oats)
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Add peanut butter and honey to a medium microwavable safe bowl and microwave for 20-30 seconds. Stir mixture until smooth. Add vanilla and cinnamon; stir well. Add oats and stir until they are well coated. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, stirring halfway through. Allow to cool and eat how you wish! Makes eight 1/4 C servings.
