Peanut Butter and Jelly Granola
Hello & Happy Thursday!!
I don’t ever eat cereal or oatmeal, but sometimes I do get a massive craving for homemade granola!
While there are a variety of store bought options, I gravitate away from those or anything for that matter that I can simply make myself. That way I know exactly what is going into a recipe and of course the sugar content can be significantly reduced.
What you’ll also find is that like most homemade versions its so much cheaper and you can modify the ingredients to cater to your personal preferences!
Basically, ..the options are endless!
What I love about this recipe is that it’s effortless, affordable, has great presentation, minimal ingredients, and tastes just like peanut butter and jelly!
