This granola. Wow. I have been trying for some time to come up with the perfect adjective to describe how absolutely delicious it is. The word, “delicious” doesn’t seem to do it justice by any means! Instead, more fitting would be descriptives such as, “scrumptious”, “completely satisfying”, “delectable”, and “mouthwatering”. I mean, seriously—I have made four batches already since recently coming across the recipe by Kristine from Kristine’s Kitchen: Nourishing Your Family and Home .You simply must try it! Not only is it simple, but it also is gluten-free, nutritious, and satisfying. Pair it with your favorite whole milk yogurt (Stonyfield has excellent flavor) or milk of choice, and you have yourself a bowl full of goodness. Or skip the milk and yogurt altogether, and instead, enjoy this granola by the handfuls! I’ve even thrown in a few add-ins such as raisins, chocolate chips, or dates when I dish up this treat. Absolutely delightful! Plus, a little side note to the nursing mama: This is great for boosting that milk supply! So don’t wait! Go ahead, whip up a batch, and enjoy.
Note: The recipe listed below does contain my tweaks, but certainly do go check out Kristine’s original recipe, “Four Ingredient Peanut Butter Granola. In fact, stay a while, and bookmark some of her other great recipes on the blog as well!
Gluten-Free, Peanut Butter Granola
*5 cups gluten-free, old fashioned oats
*1 cup organic, creamy peanut butter
*1/2 cup raw honey
*1/4 cup organic butter (I love to use Kerrygold in this recipe.)
*2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 )Preheat the oven to 275 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. I like to
use parchment for the fact that it makes clean up easier.
2) In a large bowl, add in the 5 cups of gluten-free oats. Set this aside.
3) In a medium saucepan, add in the peanut butter, organic butter, and raw honey. Heat over
medium-low heat. Stir continually to prevent burning. When all of the ingredients have
been incorporated and the mixture is warmed (but not hot!), remove from the heat and stir
in the vanilla extract. Add the entire mixture to the bowl of oats. Stir until the oats are
4) Spread the granola mixture in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Place in the
preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove and stir the mixture. Place the granola back in the
oven for 10 to 15 more minutes or until just slightly browned. Watch that it doesn’t get too
dark. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely. The granola will seem soft when
you remove it from the oven, but it will harden and form those delicious chunks as it cools!
Store in an airtight container and enjoy! And make another batch, my friends!
