Homemade Peanut Butter Granola February 19 2019, 0 Comments

Whether you're topping off your breakfast or taking it on the go, granola is a convenient and tasty way to start the day. However, many store-bought granolas are high in sugar and fat because they contain unnecessary ingredients and fillers. Don't worry though, making your own granola at home is an easy way to enjoy all of the benefits that granola has to offer without the drawbacks of many store-bought versions.

This recipe only requires seven ingredients, is packed with fiber and iron from the oats, and contains some heart-healthy unsaturated fats and protein from the peanuts and peanut butter.
