Ingredients

  • ¼ cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups oats
  • 2 cups raw, slivered almonds
  • 1 cup raisins

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 250ºF.
  • Soften peanut butter by microwaving in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Add the oats and almonds. Using a spatula, stir until well-combined.
  • Spread granola in an even layer on one or two baking sheets (depending on the size). Cook for 45 minutes – 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.*
  • Remove from the oven and stir one more time. Add raisins. Once cool, store in an airtight bag or container. Enjoy!

Notes

The granola will still turn out delicious if you don’t stir it every 15 minutes. It just won’t brown quite as evenly. 
 
Cook the granola until golden, but don’t expect it to be hard when you remove it from the oven. It will harden as it cools. The peanut butter in this recipe will turn the granola golden more quickly, so be sure to check it after 45 minutes of baking.
