Peanut Butter and Honey Granola

Oatmeal is baked with a peanut butter glaze, to become a crisp and delicious granola.





Last week, oatmeal was on sale, so I bought myself a couple bags. I never really grew up eating oatmeal, I think I tried it once, but it just wasn't sweet enough. But lately, I've been enjoying oatmeal more often. I love to add fruit to my oatmeal, or to turn it into granola. The kids really love granola too. I love that it's a great healthy snack. The kids often have granola as an after school snack. It's a great way to refuel after a long day.


When I was getting ready to make granola the other day, I noticed I had a jar of honey roasted peanuts leftover from Christmas. With all the other treats we had, we just didn't open this jar. I knew I wanted to incorporate them into the granola somehow. When thinking of what goes well with honey, I immediately thought- peanut butter! The men in my life are huge PB and honey fans, so I decided to try making some peanut butter and honey granola. This granola doesn't bake as long as other granola, since the peanut butter and honey browns very quickly. It still comes out delicious and crispy, which is important in a great granola.






Peanut Butter & Honey Granola


4 C large flake oats

1/2 C shredded coconut

1/3 C honey

1/2 C creamy peanut butter

2 Tbs coconut oil

1 C honey roasted peanuts, chopped

2/3 C peanut butter chips


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.


Place oats and shredded coconut in a large mixing bowl; set aside.


In a sauce pot, over medium-low heat, combine the honey, peanut butter and coconut oil. Heat until melted and smooth. Pour over oat mixture, and stir to evenly coat oats and coconut.


Spread out evenly onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes. The mixture will brown quickly. Remove from oven when granola becomes a nice deep golden brown.


Let cool on baking sheet until it comes to room temperature. Add in the chopped peanuts and peanut butter chips, and using your hands break apart the granola. Store in an air tight container.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends.

With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
