Peanut Butter Granola

As you know from previous posts, this is one of my favorite blogs. I love her simple recipes, and the fact that they are nourishing and family friendly. One recipe that I have been making since she first posted the recipe is her peanut butter granola. It's actually listed as The granola...but if you look in the red print at the bottom of the post, it shows a variation for peanut butter granola. It is to. die. for. If you are careful to not mix it too much, you will get little chunks of peanut butter rolled into the toasted oats. That's my favorite part! Here's the recipe that I use...I just altered it by one or two steps. Oh, and I always cut it in half, so that it's always fresh when we eat it!

2.5 c. quick oats
.5 c coconut
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
a big splash of vanilla
a sprinkle of coarse sea salt
.5 c. peanut butter
4 Tbsp. coconut oil

Melt the coconut oil with the peanut butter. Add vanilla. While the peanut butter and oil is melting, mix together the dry ingredients. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together...but not completely! You want those chunks of peanut butter! Pour onto a sheet pan and put into the oven at 300 degrees. Bake for 45 minutes or so , stirring every 15 minutes. It's SO simple, and will make your house smell ridiculously delicious. I love to eat it with a bowl of bananas, topped with plain yogurt and honey, with granola on top.
