Sunday Brunch Recipes – Homemade Strawberry Almond Granola

My friend Mama JJ has me hooked on this granola recipe.  I pretty much want to marry it.

Delicious does not even begin to describe it.  Not one bit.  If you have never tried to make your own granola before, put it on your bucket list. Seriously, because once you  make it, you’ll be like…

“What on earth was I waiting for?  This stuff is freakin’ awesome!”

Every time I have made this granola recipe I have done something a little different. The first time I used cranberries and left out the almonds, the second time I used cranberries & sunflower seeds and this time around I used strawberries and almonds.  So basically, you can change it up to suit your likes and dislikes.  And if someone in your household is allergic to peanut butter, simply use honey instead.

How to make Granola.

5 cups rolled oats
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup coconut
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup dried strawberries

In a large bowl toss the oats, nuts and coconut together. Combine the brown sugar, honey, and peanut butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until creamy {about 2 minutes}. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the oat mixture and stir to combine. Pour the mixture onto a lined cookie sheet {I used a silpat} and bake at 250 degrees for about 60. Stir every fifteen minutes so the mixture does not burn. Cool to room temperature, add dried fruit and hide the granola goodness in an airtight container. Ration accordingly.  Recipe Credit
