The Best Peanut Butter Granola Ever

That's a pretty bold statement, huh? Well, all I can say is if you are looking for a healthy alternative for a treat or a snack, this recipe is really worth your time.  It takes essentially no time to make, it's delicious and it's adaptable.

2 tbsp Peanut Butter (you could use another nut butter or sun butter instead if you prefer)
2 tbsp Honey (I use raw honey)
1 cup Rolled Oats - I like the biggest oats I can find but any oats will work
1 tsp Vanilla Extract


How you make this recipe depends on your peanut butter. If you PB is soft, just add it to a bowl with the honey and vanilla and stir well.  Add your oats and optional extras and stir. Spread the mixture out evenly on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and place in the oven at 350F/176C for 15 minutes. When you take it out, it may not look done but let it cool and it will set.  Once cool, break it up and enjoy. 

*If your PB is not very easy to stir out of the jar, add it with the honey to a small pan over a low heat and stir until soft and creamy.  Add vanilla and stir.  Then follow instructions above.

*This recipe works great as is but if you want optional extras, try a dash of cinnamon, chocolate chips, raisins, dried fruit, seeds or more nuts. If you think it would taste good, it probably will!
