Homemade Peanut Butter Granola-eat it for breakfast or as a snack
We’ve been trying to find healthier snacks for the kids to take with them to school and for after school. For my youngest, it’s no problem, throw some fruit at her and she’s in heaven. A bunch of grapes don’t stand a chance around her. And she’s not embarrassed to carry a cute lunch bag to school. For the other two, it gets a bit more challenging. My son is in high school. It’s not cool to carry that cute lunch bag around. He is willing to take his lunch, mainly because in an effort to be more healthy, along with budget cuts, school lunches just suck.They don’t even provide salt or pepper. So we have to get a little creative in what he takes. It has to be able to survive his backpack.
My middle child, in Middle School, is my picky eater. Fruit, no way. Vegetables, good luck trying that. This girl could live on cheese alone. I used to love granola as a kid. Just a little sweet, grab a handful and keep going.
Wanting to try my hand at making granola I found a recipe. It was terrible. But I knew I could work with it.
I can’t tell you how easy it is to make granola, well yes I can, and I will. But you’re going to have to head over to Chef Dennis to see. I was thrilled when he asked me to guest post for him. Men are so underestimated in the kitchen arts but let me tell you, any man that wants to cook and bake can and they can do it well. I have a good friend who is a chef and everything he makes seems so effortless. And delicious! My hubby still brings up the pizza we had 15 years ago, every time we talk about this friend. So while you’re visiting Dennis be sure to also check out his Chocolate Mousse Cake, Italian Strawberry Cake with Cream and Seven Cheese Pizza Roll Ups
