I love this kind of recipe because I always have half empty jars from previous baking ventures that need using and granola is a great way to use them and create a tasty breakfast for the week in the process.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tbsp. crunchy peanut butter
  • 4 tbsp. honey
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • A handful roughly chopped peanuts (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 150C. Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine peanut butter and honey and pop in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds until the peanut butter and honey have all melted. Stir together and then add in the cinnamon and vanilla extract.
  3. Add in the oats (and peanuts if using) and stir until all the oats are coated with the mixture.
  4. Spread in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. It may take more or less time for yours to turn a golden brown. It will still look soft when you take it out but it’s ok – it hardens up as it cools.
  5. Store in mason jars or any airtight container.

This would make cute gifts portioned up into little bags too!
