From the Kitchen - Outside the Nest

Peanut Butter Granola

This will put a little extra crunch in your life. Or at least on your yogurt, in your oatmeal, on your ice cream, any way you like it.
It'll add a little giddy in your giddyup.
This is a simple recipe, 5 ingredients in all, found on most cupboard shelves. And yes, another recipe using peanut butter and honey. 

First the honey. Cooking Tip: spray the measuring cup with cooking spray before measuring the honey. It'll drizzle right out.

Add the peanut butter, microwave just until warm and you can mix it easily.



oats. Give it a stir.

I use a silicone mat on my baking sheet. Parchment paper works just as well, or the pan can be sprayed with cooking spray. 15 minutes in the oven.

Don't be fooled if you snitch a sample when you first remove it from the oven. It may seem chewy. After it cools, it crisps right up. Store in a covered container,

sprinkle some on your morning yogurt. I prefer it on strawberry.
Is it ever good.
Happy Saturday
