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!
