Mmm.... crunchy granola on sweet, cold yogurt. I'm hungry. So hungry, in fact, upon realizing that I was out of granola while writing this post, I threw a fresh batch into the oven.
It's super easy to make:
1/4 cup all natural peanut butter
1 cup oats
Heat the oven to 350.
Mix the maple syrup and peanut butter together.
Add the oats.
Spead onto baking sheet.
Cook for 8 minutes, stir.
Cook for about 8 minutes.
Doesn't it look good? I store it in these nice jars, so I can see how yummy it is whenever I want. It's healthy too, right?
Guess where I found this super simple recipe? The back of a peanut butter jar label! One day, Kraft All Natural Peanut Butter was on sale, so I thought I'd try it. Reading the back of the label, because I usually read the labels of the things that I buy, I saw a recipe for granola topped fruit crisp (FYI, in that recipe I've used a mixture of apples, peaches and pears; I've never actually used the apples it calls for, still yummy.). After making that recipe twice, I thought that the granola topping itself might taste good mixed with yogurt. I was right. Now this simple granola is something I make fairly regularly. It's just that perfect bit of crunch that yogurt sometimes needs.
