Peanut Butter Granola

Here is the recipe for peanut butter granola (finally – eh, Twila?!). I got it from the good cooks at Faith Builders. I’m not sure what the yield is other than A LOT of granola!  Actually, I think the last time I made it I cut the recipe in half and nearly eliminated the coconut (since I’m not that crazy about it). I’m sure it would store well in an airtight container in the freezer.

12 c. quick oats
3 c. flake coconut
1 1/2 c. peanuts
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
2 1/2 c. brown sugar
2 c. crunchy peanut butter
1 1/2 c. butter
1 T. salt
1 T. vanilla
2 c. wheat germ

Melt peanut butter and butter. Add salt and vanilla. Mix with dry ingredients. Bake at 300° for approximately 2 hours on flat baking pans. Stir every 15 minutes.

  1. MMMMMmmmm!!! Thank you, southern cuzin! I will have to surprise John with this…..he’ll be sure to love it since it has p.b. in it. Hey, Mom and Dad are coming tonight…ain’t that cool?! So I better scat!

  2. It worked this time…..only because I clicked on submit, it jumped away but highlighted itself, then I hit *enter* on my keyboard. More than one way to leave a comment when computers are acting up, I guess! P.S. It’s doing the same jumpy business this time…grr!

  3. I sure wish I’d like granola.  And I’m like you–I do not like coconut!  I like everything else in it tho–just somehow don’t like it when it’s all put together!

I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to leave a comment.
