Peanut Butter is kind of my trademark.

Growing up I was the queen of peanut butter toast. My brother used to make fun of me because I would always leave my knife across the open jar of peanut butter, ready for action.

In our teens (we are two years apart. I’m the baby ), after our Mom passed away, toast was on the menu for breakfast and also again for dinner more nights than not. My Dad was not much of a cook and also worked shifts, so we were on our own for most meals.

 

If I didn’t go out for a bite with friends it was usually toast for dinner.

PEANUT BUTTER GRANOLA

We’ve come a long way, baby!

There was usually more than one round of toast going on so, I would leave my knife sitting on the peanut butter for round two and for some reason, my brother always thought that was so funny.

It’s interesting what you remember, isn’t it?

Anyway, I had a few of cups of oats I wanted to use up.

Since I’ve been eating less grains lately, the ends of a bag of oats had been sitting for awhile and were on the verge of going stale.

I was craving something peanut buttery, so Peanut Butter Granola it was.

    Love!!!!! My husband can’t stop eating it! It’s soooo good! I did not use quick oats, just gluten free oats and I used 1 tbs of brown sugar and 1 tbs of organic sugar in lieu of the 3 tbs of coconut sugar as I did not have coconut sugar on hand.
