Peanut Butter Granola.
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.

That looks amazing! I bet my husband would gobble that right up!
Thanks for sharing!
Oh- I would have destroyed that in no time as well- thanks for sharing the recipe- even though it’s apparently deadly.. could have been worse with chocolate chips involved- in a way, you did play it safe!
OMG no way!! This sound over the top amazing!! I want to go make some right now!
I can´t wait to try this recipe sometime!
Have a great night!
I have never made granola, but I think it is worth a try!! I really like it – but I don’t find it as addictive as some people :-)
Oh wow, this looks so good! I’ve never made homemade granola but it’s on my “to-do” list. I can’t imagine practicing moderation before and after the oven, it’s so tasty and the texture is awesome both soft and crunchy. Reminds me of a cookie probably lol.
Love the coating on these – yep, this really does look great
Can’t wait to try this recipe. I only started making my own granola within the last couple months, but haven’t decided on a favorite yet, I seem to love them all!
This looks so yummy! I noticed that you entered the Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil giveaway on another site and I wanted to let you know that I am also offering this giveaway on my site. Come check it out!
ok so i have never published granola before. and i publish it. and then i come over here, and you had published granola today. not just granola, but PB gran. Which Madeline who i linked in my post, also recently made PB Gran. Boy, we’re in sync girl :)
H. Thrives and tasting like dog food…I am kinda thinking that may happen. I havent tried them yet though LOL
That sounds amazing and looks even better! I’ve never tried adding peanut butter – how genius!
Peanut butter, oats, stickiness…pretty much sums up the loves of my life right there. Nice recipe!
Im a sucker for homemade granola! Loving the sounds of this peanut butter version! yum!
I am making these!
I’ve never made granola before…nor have I purchased it. I KNOW myself too well and I would definitely be able to stick to the suggested “serving” size :)

Peanut butter and granola? You’re my hero.
I love making granola because you can customize it to your taste and nutritional needs. Or not! Or you can go crazy and add the kitchen sink! Num, num, num.
OMG, this sounds fantastic. I’ve actually been thinking of trying my hand at homemade granola all week (although I find Kashi golean crunch cereal is a good substitute when there’s none around). I looveeeee granola..I may have to try your recipe! :)
Hi Mama!!!!! I have missed reading your blog! Dang India internet!! It can barely load pages sometimes…REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH. Grrr.
Anyways, I’d give you some self control- but I have none…….PASS ME A HANDFUL PLEASE?! Thanks for the wonderful recipe! It sounds fabulous! Granola is one of my most fav. foods!!
HAPPY DAY GORGEOUS LADY!
I’m a big fan of granola, but it’s just so darn addicting! My favorite recipe so far is by the CandidRD. Yours looks really tasty!
PB and honey? Count me in!
Omigosh, i just made it and it is super yummy!! actually i probably also ate 1/3 of it before it even made it to the oven. check out my website, i got really exciting news!
Your granola looks delicious! I think I’m due to make a batch, it’s been so long since I’ve made it homemade. I used to make it every week. The PB is probably a great addition.
ps- I make HUGE batches- starting with 6 cups of oats!
I made a lower cal version- I used crisped rice, which you did too! Nom, I’ll try yours one of these days and yes totally addicting.
Looks sweet and healthy! Perfect for dessert and morning to go bfast.
What a great recipe! I think this would be a great bake sale item for the Food Bloggers Bake Sale, too!
