This peanut butter granola was my first attempt at ever making a homemade granola.

I’d say it certainly was tasty since I devoured the entire tray within 3 seconds. Which is why I usually don’t make my own granola – because I will eat it all in one sitting.

Someone please give me some self control.

I mixed a ton of sticky ingredients together before laying them across a baking sheet.

And I ate about 38 spoonfuls before it even went into the oven. What is it that makes granola so addicting? It is virtually impossible to stop at the recommended serving size.

This is another treat that Mr. How Sweet didn’t even get to taste. I don’t even think I told him I made this. No biggie – he wouldn’t have eaten it anyway since is lacked meat.

Plus, ‘granola’ to him equals weird, hippie-like people. He basically has convulsions when I make him go to Whole Foods or a co-op.

Oh – well, here is the main reason Mr. How Sweet didn’t get any granola. His wife scarfed down this giant bowl while he was out shoveling snow. I do my part, he does his.

Peanut Butter Granola

1 1/2 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup puffed rice

1/4 cup wheat germ

1/4 cup natural peanut butter

3 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons peanuts, chopped

pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine all ingredients together until mixed. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
