I kind of have this thing for granola, mostly because it means I don't have to cook in the morning. I've been making this Coconut Granola, but I wanted to try something different that would use some of my surplus of pecans. Peanut butter and pecans go great together, but you can try any combination of nut butter and nuts.
3 c. oats
1 c. pecans
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp. salt
¼ c. butter
½ c. peanut butter
¼ c. honey
1 tsp. vanilla
Chop the pecans into bite-size chunks.
In a large bowl, mix the oats, pecans, nutmeg, and salt. Pour it all into a generously greased 9x13" baking dish.
To a small saucepan, add the butter, peanut butter, and honey. Heat it on low just until it's all melted and combined.
Pour the vanilla over the oats and then the peanut butter mixture. Stir until all the oats have been coated.
Bake at 325° F for 30 minutes. Take the granola out at 15 minutes and stir it, then stir it again as soon as it's all done. When I have finished granola, I like to immediately pour it into a glass storage container. I've found that it helps to prevent any sticking to the bottom of the baking dish.
Serve for breakfast or as a healthy snack!
Enjoy - and let me know what other nut combinations you try!
