Boy, oh boy do I have a recipe for you!
But first, I want to tell you about some updates I made to the blog yesterday.
After the usual Sunday grocery shopping and food prep, I got out of the house and headed to Starbucks to completely focus on getting some blog work done.
The end result was a mission accomplished! I updated the workout tab on the top bar, and created a drop down list categorizing various workouts that I have created, my race stats, and I compiled all of my fitness related posts into one place.
So, if you are in need of a workout routine, then head on over to the workout page to check it out!
Now, on to the important stuff…
Honey Peanut Buttery Granola
I had really been wanting to make a batch of granola recently, so I decided yesterday was as good as a day as any! I looked at several of my usual recipes, took bits and pieces from each and threw in a little of my own flair. The end result was completely tasty.
Ingredients (warning, this recipe makes a TON!! So you can definitely half it or even quarter it!):
- 1 1/2 cups honey
- 1/2 cup agave nectar syrup
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup canola oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 8 cups oats
- 2 cups sunflower seed
- 1 1/2 cups wheat germ
- 1 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 350.
In a large microwave safe bowl, combine the peanut butter, oil, honey, vanilla, and agave. Place in the microwave and heat for about 1 minute, or until it is slightly bubbly and easy to stir and combine.
Place dry ingredients in peanut butter and honey mixture. Stir until combined. Place the mixture onto one or two greased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and stir. Reduce the oven temperature to 250, and place the granola back in the oven for 10-15 minutes removing it to stir and replacing it back in the oven until it is the desired brownness.
When it is done cooking, spread the granola on waxed paper to cool, then store in a sealed container.
