Hi guys! How’s your week? I can’t contain my excitement for this weekend! It’s my friend Kristen’s bachelorette party! I will be sure to share our silly antics with a recap on Sunday.
Speaking of the bachelorette party…
I spent a couple hours in the kitchen yesterday making a cake of a certain body part for the occasion if you know what I mean. It’s truly hysterical and I can’t wait to show the bride to be!
I also plan on making these darling jello shots in strawberries. I know, in strawberries! Isn’t that just the cutest idea!?! How did I ever get by without Pinterest before, I’ll never know.
Since I had the oven on, I decided to make a recipe I found at Peanut Butter Fingers for peanut butter granola (say that three times fast ). This recipe in three words is to. die. for. If you like peanut butter, you’ll love this recipe.
Peanut Butter Granola (from PB Fingers)
serves 4- 1/4 c. servings
- 2 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
- 2 tbsp. honey
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup oats
-Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
-Combine peanut butter and honey in a bowl and microwave until peanut butter melts (approximately 20 seconds). Stir.
-Stir cinnamon and vanilla into peanut butter and honey mixture.
-Add oats and stir until oats are completely covered in peanut butter mixture.
-Spread out oat mixture onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 7 – 8 minutes until granola is slightly browned.
-Let cool until granola is crunchy.
I loved that it had a slight hint of sweet from the honey, but definitely not overpowering. Of course I couldn’t get enough of the peanut buttery taste in each and every bite.
Since I was eating handfuls straight out of the container, I thought I should try and eat the granola in a more civilized manner. I topped some on my yogurt today at lunch and it was just delicious!
Crunchy, chewy, and bursting with flavor.
Thanks for reading!
