Organic Peanut Butter and Chocolate Granola

Homemade Organic

PB&C  Granola

I love connecting with fellow bloggers! It is amazing the inspiration that can happen simply by reading what someone else has made. So today, when I was checking out I GOT THIS MARTHA and saw her soy nut butter stomach growled and  I went on the hunt for ingredients...

I GOT THIS MARTHA makes hers with a soy nut butter as she has a family member who is allergic to nuts. I didn't have any handy so I made mine with regular peanut butter with a little organic almond chocolate butter! Remember...I was inspired!

This granola recipe is so easy to make and is so good for you. It is a healthy alternative to the granolas sold in the cereal aisle and if made with these completely organic!

To make my recipe you will need:

1 cup of Oats
2 tbsp. of  Organic Peanut Butter
2 tbsp. of  Honey
1 tbsp. of Chocolate Almond Butter (optional)
1/4 tsp. of cinnamon
1/4 tsp. of vanilla
and of kids added organic o's!

My end result! not as pretty as Jeni's!
Easy Directions:

1) in a sauce pan melt down the honey and butters
2) when melted, add in the cinnamon and vanilla
3) mix together the oats and butter blend. make sure that you get even coverage (mine isn't so hot because the kids made it) but you get the idea!
4) Spread the mixture out on a greased cookie sheet and bake in a 325 degree oven for about 8 minutes!

So easy the kids can make it...They dressed themselves..don't judge!
