Wildly Addictive Peanut Butter Granola
Very Good 4.3/5
(34 ratings)

A store near my daughter's house in California has peanut butter granola in the bulk food section. But I couldn't find it anywhere near my house in Illinois, so I found this recipe online and made my own. Now I'm glad I couldn't find it at the store. It's cheaper and I can control the ingredients that are used.

I fell in love with the Kashi Coco Beach granola last year, but no one is carrying it where I live anymore. It was also pretty expensive for a small package, and had 9 grams of fat per 1/2 cup serving. So this recipe is my attempt to recreate a yummy chocolate coconut granola and knock down some of the fat at the same time. The calories in this version are just below the original (224 vs. 230), but the fat was reduced from 9g to 3g without losing any of the protein (both have 6g of protein)!

Spruce up any salad with this creamy dressing! It's spicy but not at all hot! Drizzle over salads, grilled chicken or fish. Use in place of sour cream on tacos or use as base for a pasta salad.

These bean cakes are yummy and great for you. Served with the salsa, it makes a very colorful and festive presentation. I serve these with a lite side salad. Plenty of protein and fiber. Even my meat loving hubby loves this meal.
