4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Granola
Yield: 5 cups

5 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
Place oats in a large bowl. Combine peanut butter and honey in a liquid measuring cup. Heat in the microwave for about 45 seconds, until the peanut butter starts to melt. Whisk peanut butter and honey to blend. Add in vanilla and whisk to incorporate.
Pour the peanut butter mixture over the oats and stir until well combined. Spread granola in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, stir, and then bake 10-15 minutes more until granola becomes light golden brown. Let cool completely on baking sheet. The granola will become crisp as it cools. Store granola in an airtight container for up to two weeks.

Elise's Homemade Vanilla Granola

8 c. oats
2 c. sliced almonds
1 c. wheat germ
1 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp cinnamon
craisins or raisins, to taste (optional)
3/4 c. canola oil or coconut oil
1 c. honey
3 Tbsp. vanilla (use the real stuff if you have it-- it tastes much better)

Preheat oven to 300-degrees. Combine first 8 ingredients (dry ingredients) in a large bowl. In a saucepan combine oil, honey, and vanilla and bring to a boil. Let boil for 1 minute then pour over oat mixture. Mix until all ingredients are moistened. Divide and spread mixture over 2 large cookie sheets and bake at 300-degrees for 20-30 minutes. Remove from oven and leave on pans until the granola hardens (It may be a little chewy and that's ok.. If you prefer it not to be chewy at all, allow to dry completely). Break up granola and store in large Ziploc bags or containers. Serve plain, with yogurt, or with milk.
