Last week when I was reading all of my usual blogs, I saw that Tina posted this recipe. Once I saw it I knew I had to try it. I’m not much of a granola gal but anything that involves peanut butter usually has my heart. Plus, Mike had been mentioning wanting to try some new granola yogurt. What could be better than a fun experiment making it together!?
The ingredients are:
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup softened peanut butter (just microwave for about 20sec)
- 2T coconut oil
- 2T honey
- 2tsp vanilla extract
- 1T cinnamon
- 1tsp sea salt
Slowly add all the remaining ingredients until everything is well mixed!
Then, spray a sheet pan (I covered mine with foil for easy clean up) with Pam and spread the mixture evenly. The next step is to bake at 325* for 15 minutes, tossing halfway though. We found this still doesn’t make it very crunchy so you may want to bake a little longer to get to your desired texture! Finally, let this cool on the baking sheet for about 20 minutes until the granola sets. Now eat, what are you waiting for!??!
This makes the perfect yogurt or smoothie topping! I calculated that for about 1/8 cup this comes out to 100 calories!
Happy crunching! 🙂
