Crunchy Peanut Butter Granola

Sad story.

IMG_4778

I’m all out of peanut butter.

BUT it’s totally for a fantastic reason! So I guess it’s really not that sad of a story. Anyways, you guys know I love my classic breakfast combo- greek yog, bluebs, and that Fiber One cereal. However, I am about out of Fiber One and sometimes that cereal is as much as $6 (?!?!) a box! So, as much as I love it, I decided it might be time to search for a cheaper member of my breakfast bowl.

Enter: Peanut Butter Granola. This stuff is highly addictive and pretty darn nutritious- yay for oats! And it’s pretty much as wallet-friendly as something can be. I made a small batch this morning because I was 1.) Hungry, and smaller batches take less time, and 2) I only had 2 TBSP of peanut butter left in my sad little jar.

This recipe is simple and takes a total of less than 20 minutes! I would make a bigger batch if you can, though. Pretty sure this is all going to be gone before lunch.

Have a wonderful Thursday, I’m off to a date with my mother in law!

    I got really excited when my granola ran out the other day because it meant that I could try this one out! I doubled it of the bat, but added 1/2 cup sliced almonds and used 1/2 cup less oats. Smells delicious 🙂
