Peanut Butter Granola {recipe}

A couple months ago we dove head-first into a casein-free diet for Grant. Now we are officially removing gluten as well. That means I am on a mission to find new recipes that my whole family will eat.

Yes, I am one determined mama to find really yummy recipes that will improve the health of my son - and the rest of the family - and allow us to still enjoy food!

In the Kitchen with Karen

I found this quick and easy recipe from here. It took only a few minutes to make and it was very tasty. I had purchased some gluten free oats a week earlier and was excited to use them in this recipe. 

I {heavily} sprinkled the granola over Greek yogurt with fresh peaches while Grant had his with almond yogurt and fresh peaches.

Makes four ¼ c servings

2 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
2 tbsp. honey
¼ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. oats (make sure, if needed, the oats are gluten free)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. Combine peanut butter and honey in a bowl and microwave until peanut butter melts (approximately 20 seconds). Stir. Stir cinnamon and vanilla into peanut butter and honey mixture. Add oats and stir until oats are completely covered in peanut butter mixture. Spread out oat mixture onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 7 -8 minutes until granola is slightly browned (it took only 6 minutes in my oven). Let cool until granola is crunchy. 

Recipe originally from Peanut Butter Fingers

Wesley was a total fan of the granola as well. :)
