Peanut Butter Granola

Image

This granola is as quick and easy as it gets: 5 ingredients and the whole shebang takes under 15 minutes from gathering the ingredients to pulling the granola out of the oven. This recipe makes 4 servings and is delicious to munch on for a snack or to top some Greek yogurt for breakfast (I topped my strawberry yogurt with it this morning for some PB&J action and it was awesome.) Each serving comes in at 150 calories so if you’re trying to maintain your girlish figure this one won’t kill you (like most of the other things I like.)

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
