Peanut Butter + Honey Granola

I feel like I’ve become quite obsessed with oats in all forms.

Perhaps it started with the maple pecan granola, but we all know that it moved into full-blown crazypants obsession with the discovery of refrigerator oats (chocolate peanut butter, maple brown sugar, peach + honey, peanut butter + honey, pumpkin chia, strawberry).

The oat obsession has come full-circle and returned to it’s humble roots: granola.

Speaking of granola, the flavor of the week is peanut butter + honey (thanks to eat sleep cuddle). A flavor combination I find myself drawn to more and more with each passing year. It’s comforting, filling, and the perfect combination of salty and sweet.

Not quite sure how that happened, though, considering I was a die-hard peanut butter and jelly fan as a child. As in, I had it every single day for lunch for a solid 10 years (no joke). It came packed in a brown paper bag next to an apple, pretzels, a Hawaiian Punch juice box, and a little love note from My Mama.

Those were the days.

Some days I wish I still got those little love notes with my lunch. I guess I’ll just have to take comfort in knowing that creating delicious and healthy treats are like love notes to myself.

Based on this granola, I’d say I feel pretty darn loved.

I’m already dreaming about breakfast tomorrow. And wishing I had gone to the store so that I had a fresh banana to slice and put on top.

Maybe I’ll convince The Hubster that we need a late night date night trip to the store. He likes to dance in the aisles to the slow jams that are piped through the store. I like to hurry through the store and pretend that he’s not embarrassing the crap out of me.

  1. Sadly these burned in my oven too, after only being in for 10 minutes. The whole bottom was black and the top of the granola was soft still? Not sure what is up with that…

  2. Ovens can vary in temperature by quite a bit. I found that 325 worked better with my oven and I stirred the mixture half way through.
