DIY Easy Peanut Butter Granola

This recipe is super easy to make. It saves a lot of money even in the States. Here, where cereal is so expensive that I have heard of cereal being requested as a Christmas gift, it really cuts breakfast costs. Especially, when I buy the ingredients in bulk.

Peanut Butter Honey Granola

½ cup honey (maple syrup, or pancake syrup can be substituted)
1 cup peanut butter (or regular butter)
6 cups oatmeal
1 cup or more of additions (such as raisins, dried fruit, nuts, or seeds) (optional)

Truth be told, I usually don't bother to measure this recipe anymore, but this is the basic ratio.

In a large non-stick or cast iron pot, melt the peanut butter, stirring frequently. Turn off heat, and stir in honey. Add oatmeal, and stir to coat evenly with the peanut butter and honey mixture. If you wish to add unroasted nuts or seeds to the granola, do so now. Spread on cookie sheets and bake at 350F for 10–15 minutes. Check granola at this point to see if it has browned lightly. Stir and bake for another 10–15 minutes if necessary.

Allow the granola to cool before mixing in other additions and transferring to an airtight container for storage.
