Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats (gluten free, if necessary)
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted and salted peanuts
  • 1 cup freeze-dried strawberries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 275°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment or a silicone baking sheet.
  • In a small, microwave-safe bowl, stir together the peanut butter, honey, and salt. Microwave for about 30 seconds or until you can stir it into a smooth mixture.
  • Place the oats in a large mixing bowl. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the oats and stir until completely coated.
  • Spread in a single layer on the sheet pan, and press down.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, then stir gently without breaking up all of the large pieces. Spread into a single layer.
  • Bake for another 20-30 minutes, gently stirring and checking every 10 minutes until dried out and slightly crisp. It will become more crisp and crunchy as it cools.
  • Cool on the pan until it reaches room temperature, then mix in the peanuts and freeze-dried strawberries.
  • Store the granola in an airtight container.
