Flash Back Friday: PB GRANOLA


Because of switching to a new blog, I don’t want all my other recipes to disappear into the internet abyss, I’m going to start doing a flash back Friday post!! I will pull one of my old recipes from the depths to share with all of you again!!

First off,


I made this granola before a relay race when I last posted it.. What are the chances?

GRANOLA LOVER right here!

I love peanut butter...

That really all there is to it!

So when I saw Julies PB granola a few days ago, I knew exactly what I wanted to make for the race!
I followed her recipe mostly. I doubled it so I could share it with 5 of my closest and sweatiest friends in a van.

{Peanut Butter Granola}

  • 3 cups Old fashioned Granola
  • 1/2 C. Crunchy Peanut butter (freshly grounded)
  • 1/2 C. Agave Nectar
  • 2 tbs. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tbs. Cinnamon
  • 1 C. Dark Chocolate Chips

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees
Put  PB and Agave in bowl and place in microwave for about 45 sec. Mix well.

Stir in Vanilla and Cinnamon
Add Oatmeal one cup at a time till oats are evenly coated

Spray cookie sheet with Canola oil and spread the granola around evenly

Bake for 7-10 minutes until the granola has browned on top
Let it cool & it adds a little crunch.

..Mountain O' Granola..

Toss in chocolate chips! Really what is PB without a little chocolate?

mmmmm. peanut butter chocolatey gooodnessssss......

Store in Air tight container and just try to save it until the next day.. I dare you! 

I ate about half the pan before I realized I made this for the run.. So I made more.. and I really think it is calling my name from the pantry.... 

Q. What is your favorite granola mix in?

I also threw in some flax seeds on the second batch and it was fantastic... just sayin.
