Peanut Butter Almond Granola

Peanut Butter Almond Granola

Cook Time 10 min baking 10 min broil

This is the best granola recipe you'll ever eat!

My husband eats granola every morning with his yogurt. EVERY Morning! Even though I've bought "healthy expensive" brands, he prefers a common inexpensive brand. It's not that I don't mind inexpensive, but this name brand is also full of sugar, high fructose corn syrup (HFC) and other additives.  Granola is supposed to be healthy and his brand is anything but.  Since I'm diligent at ridding my cupboards of HFC, I have been threatening at making our own granola and I finally did.  I don't know why I put it off for so long, this granola was SO easy to make and the taste is husband approved! My teen son also loves it and has been making greek yogurt parfaits daily. I love it, not because it's delicious, but because it has a bit of protein and doesn't have any refined sugar or additives.

It's moments like these that make me feel like super woman!
