Granola Galore

I have made about 40+ cups of granola today!  I made a double batch of My Favorite Granola and a triple batch of Peanut Butter Granola (now I'm ready for my boys to come home.. ):


(peanut butter granola is on the left..  they look the same, but they taste different!)..

  1. I have a peanut butter granola, too. This one is a bit different, having oil. But I may try yours as mine is dry, although it is good for munching and on parfaits. I think I might like to make my own granola bars... I'll have to do some searching for recipes for that.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh yum! That looks so good. One question...do you HAVE to be all natural peanut butter?

    I'm a frequent reader of your website and have gleaned lots of good useful information here. Thanks for all the effort you put into it. :) Lori

  4. I have the same recipe as you. A WONDERFUL addition that really makes it a treat is 1/3 to 1/2 cup carob or cocoa powder. You put it in with the peanut butter, oil and honey when you're melting them. Coconut and almonds is great too :-)

  5. One question though can you leave out the raisins (dd and I both do not like them) ?
