I found a new granola recipe that I have fallen in love with. I can’t believe I was ever afraid of making homemade granola. I guess I thought it would be too hard or too time consuming. I’m not sure, but obviously it can’t be too hard since I make granola all the time now.
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon (I didn’t add this, but I think I will next time.)
Melt the butter and peanut butter together in a 3-quart saucepan.
Add the honey, vanilla and salt. Stir the mixture until it is smooth.
Add the oats and cinnamon. Stir until the oats are completely coated with the peanut butter mixture.
Turn the mixture onto an ungreased cookie sheet, or a large 9 by 13-inch pan. Spread the granola out evenly and bake it at 375° for 10-12 minutes. It will be brown and crispy.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan. Break up into pieces after it has cooled.
Transfer the granola to a sealed container. Add the raisins, if you are using them, when the granola is cool.
What did the family think? The kids don’t like granola and hubby won’t touch peanut butter granola. You know what I have to say to that? Good. More for me. 🙂
Where did this recipe come from? Hillbilly Housewife
Where’s the butter? I used the last of it in this recipe and the box made it into the trash before it made it into this picture.
