Peanut Butter Granola

Submitted by: SEAKRITS

Introduction

I like to use around 1/4C of this in my yogurt. I'm sure there are lower nutritional granolas on the market, but I'm also very budget conscience and find this to be not only thrifty, but more healthy since there isn't any preservatives in it.

Ingredients

    2 TBSP. Margarine (I've used butter in a pinch)
    1/3 C Peanut Butter (I use regular cause that's all I have on hand)
    1/3 C Honey
    1/2 TSP vanilla extract
    1/2 TSP salt
    3C oats
    (optional) 1/2 nuts, raisins, cranberries, etc

Directions

Nutritional info. based on 1/4 Cup serving. Makes approx. 12 1/4C servings.

Heat oven to 375.
Melt the margarine and peanut butter in a pan over medium heat.
Add the honey, vanilla, and salt. Stir to combine until smooth. Add oats and stir again to coat thoroughly.
Pour into ungreased cookie sheet and spread out evenly.
Bake for 10 minutes, remove, and cool in pan.
Crumble, and add any additionals at this time such as 1/2 cup raisins, or cranberries, or nuts, or all if you like.
Store in airtight container.

This is SUPER easy to make. I typically use 1/4 cup on top of some fat free yogurt, but I've eaten some for breakfast, as a snack, etc. My kids LOVE it. I have to monitor them or they'll eat it all in one shot. Feel free to substitute fat free, low fat, or reduced fat ingredients where ever you can. I made this recipe with all regular stuff since it's what I have on hand, so it can only get better if you substitute. :)
