Remember how I bought that giant jar of almond butter, come to find out I’m more partial to peanut butter after all? Well, that jar has been opened on very few occasions since its purchase, until I came across a recipe where I could actually use the stuff to my advantage – Almond Butter Granola, from one of my favorite bloggers, Peanut Butter Fingers. I’ve never made granola before, so I never knew how easy it is to actually make. Most of the ingredients are (or should be) staples in your kitchen. I tweaked the recipe a little bit, since I, embarrassingly, did not have any vanilla extract in my kitchen. And, instead of honey, I used Agave Nectar, which is lighter and a little less overwhelming than honey, in my opinion.
It might be some of the best granola I’ve ever had, and I’m going to give props to the almond butter for that. Less than 20 minutes to make, it’s a great on the go breakfast or snack for the day.
Does anyone have any favorite granola recipes I could try? I’m hooked!
