peanut butter granola on Pinterest, I knew we had to try it. The original recipe was just a little too sweet for me so I made some adjustments on the second batch... and added some extras. Now I'm addicted!
Adapted from this recipe.
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
6 Tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups oats
1 1/2 cups lightly salted cocktail peanuts
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325. Line a big baking sheet with parchment paper.
Put the peanut butter, honey, cinnamon and vanilla in a large bowl and microwave 15-30 seconds, just to soften up the peanut butter so you can fully combine the ingredients. When they are smooth, stir in the oats until they are evenly coated.
Spread the mixture out on the baking sheet. Try not to press down on it - keep it light with lots of air around pieces. Break up bigger pieces so it all will cook evenly.
Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring gently after 15. You want it to be golden brown. It will crisp up after it comes out so don't worry if it seems a little soft when it first comes out.
Let cool on baking sheet, then add peanuts and chocolate chips and enjoy!
