Day 119: Peanut Butter Granola

Serves 16-20

6 cups dry oatmeal
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup toasted coconut (I didn't toast mine)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar

1. Combine oatmeal, wheat germ, coconut, seeds, and raisins in large slow cooker.

2. Melt together butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar. Pour over oatmeal in cooker. Mix well.

3. Cover. Cook on low 1 1/2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes.

4. Allow to cool on cookie sheet. Break up chunks when cooled and store in airtight container.

Review:

Has anyone ever had monster cookies before? This granola tastes like monster cookie crumbs. It is so good! I'm probably the biggest fan of peanut butter that you'll ever meet though, so take that into consideration. I go through a jar of pb pretty much once a week! I buy it by the case. Do you think you could substitute canola oil for the butter? Or would it make it gross? That way you could make it a little healthier. Maybe I'll try it. 4 stars.

  1. This looks great. I'm a granola fan so will have to try this. I have a bunch of granola now, but will know what to make whan it's gone. How long do you recommend cooking it on the baking sheet? 10-15 minutes ish?

  2. Oops! It's supposed to say allow to COOL on cookie sheet not cook. So it just cools on the sheet, no need for further baking.

  3. I would say a big NO to changing the butter to oil. It is a flavor and a consistence deal. You could try to "healthy" butter sustitutes. But in something like this, I would say you are better to not mess with it.

    I've done coconut oil in other granola recipes & it comes out great I will have to give it a try in this recipe instead if the butter, I'm going to melt 1/4 cup of coconut oil & see how it goes.

    This is not healthy ! too much fat , use PB 2 to remove 85 percent from peanut butter. use 1/4 cup coconut oil to replace butter...just 2tbsp of butter use raw honey 1/2 cup to replace sugar add some cinnamon and dash of real vanilla to sweeten your palate.....cheers !
