Peanut Butter Granola

Is there anything that peanut butter is not good on? The answer is no, its great for savory, sweet, EVERYTHING!  Therefore, I want to use it in everything.  This recipe is a new way to get your peanut butter fix in!  I also like to call this fit granola, because I was working out waiting for it to cook!  Which is a great way to get your workout in, while also getting your cooking done! This recipe is really easy, and will last for up to 2 weeks in a sealed container!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups oats
  • 3/4 cup cheerios
  • 1/4 cup quinoa (uncooked)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar or honey
  • 1/4 shredded coconut
  • 1 splash vanilla
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

How to:

  1. In a sauce pan, melt the butter and peanut butter together.  Add the cinnamon, sugar, vanilla, and stir on low heat until smooth.
  2. Mix in a bowl all the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the wet to the dry with a spatula.  Try to coat as much of the dry in the wet as possible.  This will take some energetic tossing!
  4. Lay it all flat on a baking sheet.  Create a small hole in the middle of the granola, so it will cook evenly.
  5. Cook for 30-40 minutes on 325. Until everything is golden.
  6. Let cool completely and store in an air tight container for up to 2 weeks!
