Introduction

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. A store near my daughter's house in California has peanut butter granola in the bulk food section.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 1/4 c. oats
    1/2 c. flour
    1/2 t. baking soda
    1 t. pure vanilla
    3 to 5 Tablespoons vegetable oil
    1/3 c. peanut butter (or other nut butter)
    1/4 c. brown sugar
    Add-ins (I usually don't use add-ins): 1/2 c. mini choc. chip morsels, 1 c. mixed peanut butter and choc chip morsels, 1 c. choc chips

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix together the oats, flour, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the vanilla extract.
3. Add the vegetable oil and peanut butter and mix. The mixture will be a bit chunky.
4. Stir in the brown sugar.
5. Stir in chosen add-ins. The mixture will be a bit moist from the oil and peanut butter, but overall it should be rather dry and chunky. Spoon the granola into a square 8-inch cake pan.
6. Bake the granola for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 10 min. in the pan, and then dig in! Before storing, allow granola to cool completely in the pan and then store it at room temp. in a tightly sealed container. This granola will keep for at least a week. But, it won't last that long before it gets eaten.

    Excellent! Next time I will add a frozen banana and some flax seed for added nutrition and fiber, thanks for the recipe! - 6/17/09

    I made bars out of mine. The only thing I changed was the oil. I substituted 3 Tablespoons of homemade applesauce. They turned out very good! These are now a favorite snack at my house. ~Thanks for sharing!

    I made this tonight and it's very tasty! I added coconut and raisins, as well as extra vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. I accidentally baked it on a flat pan instead of a cake pan, and it turned out rather moist. I let it set for 10 minutes, as per the instructions and it crispied up. Very hearty. - 5/10/10

    This is making my mouth water! But I checked into making it with Splenda Brown Sugar blend...are you aware that it actually has more calories than brown sugar itself??? I just checked the packages - I was floored! Either way - I HAVE to try your recipe - it sounds TOO scrumptious! - 6/15/09

    Thank you so much for pointing that out. No. I didn't know that it actually has more calories than regular brown sugar. I like regular brown sugar anyway, so I'm going to make an adjustment to my recipe.

    I wouldn't even want to try an "addictive" snack with that kind of nutritional value- trying to LOSE weight - 9/2/12
