Peanut Butter Granola

Made my first batch of granola tonight. Thought I would share the recipe. It was delicious! This recipe comes from A Farmer’s Daughter cook book by Dawn Stoltzfus.  She did a book signing a few weeks ago at the book store where I work. After tasting some of the recipes she made and brought with her,  I had to buy the cook book.

3 cups rolled oats

1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts (I substituted pecans and almonds)

1/2 cup flaked coconut

1/4 cup wheat bran or germ

1/4 whole flax-seed

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1/4 cup salted butter

2 Tbsp. honey

1/4 tsp. salt

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Toss together oats, peanuts, coconut, wheat bran/germ, and flax-seed.

 

In a small saucepan, heat peanut butter, brown sugar, butter, honey, and salt for 3 minutes over medium heat. Remove from heat and pour over oat mixture. Toss to coat. Spread mixture evenly on a lightly greased jelly roll pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring every 10 minutes. Yields 5 cups.

 

 

I doubled this recipe so that I wouldn’t run out so quick. And I enjoyed some right out of the oven in a bowl with Almond Milk. So yummy!!!  Would also be good on yogurt. Enjoy!

    Yeah! My favorite way to eat it is with whole milk maple yogurt. Odd combination but I love it! It was nice meeting you!
