I suppose you're right...Evan is a keeper, for sure! I can't stop admiring my flowers. They really brighten up a room!
**********I decided this morning that I just might be addicted to a certain combination of flavors...peanut butter and honey. I mean, really. They were made for each other!
I deviated from my normal breakfast today because I'm completely out of granola.
More specifically, I'm completely out of this granola...that was featured here with lemon Chobani and strawberries.
Peanut Butter-Honey Granola. You can't make this stuff up, my friends. It is flippin' (by the way, I've been using that word a lot lately!) amazing.
Here's the killer...to make this you have to warm up the peanut butter in the microwave and then add the honey. I may have eaten like 14 spoonfuls of it before adding it to the oats and almonds. No shame!
Peanut Butter-Honey Granola
Adapted from: Jif Peanut Butter Granola
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup slivered almonds (or any type of nut)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
In a medium bowl, combine the oats and the almonds. Set aside. In a small, microwavable dish heat the peanut butter so it becomes easy to stir (around 30 seconds). Stir in the honey, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour over oats and almonds - toss to coat.
Place onto a baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes - stirring every 10 minutes. *DO NOT pre-heat the oven. After 25 minutes, turn the oven OFF and let it rest in the oven for an additional 15 minutes. Store in an air-tight container for up to one week.
