Crunchy Peanut Butter Granola
I'm sure you are reading this with a fabulous granola recipe already under your belt. It is a recipe that has withstood the test of time and has made it into the kitchen of countless chefs, cooks, moms and dads. Start with rolled oats and a liquid sweetener and just start adding ingredients in from there. It's so simple, takes just a quick bit in the oven and you got yourself some granola!
I opted for a simple recipe this time but please feel free to use this as your base and add ingredients from there. I am still doing a sugar detox and whenever I can, I avoid adding anything extra sweet to my food so the only sweetener in this recipe is brown rice syrup. You can add another sweetener if you wish but, for me, the brown rice syrup is enough.
2 cups of rolled oats
1/2 cup of brown rice syrup
1/3 cup of raw pecans
1/2 cup of natural peanut butter
1/4 cup of coconut oil
Pour the rolled oats into a large bowl and add the pecans. Heat the coconut oil, brown rice syrup and peanut butter in a small pan. When heated, melted and smooth, pour on top of the oats and pecans and mix well. It may be difficult to mix at first but keep going, the brown rice syrup is thick. When all ingredients are mixed well, spread the granola out on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 300 degrees. Store in air tight containers.
