Hillbilly Housewife Granola…

We love this stuff!

Peanut Butter Granola  (We triple it and “healthy” it up a smidge.)

6 T Butter

1 c Natural Peanut Butter

1 c Raw Honey

1 t Vanilla Extract

1/4 t Sea salt

9 c Rolled oats

1 c Nuts of your choice, slivered almonds, pecans, walnuts, preferabley soaked) (optional)

Melt butter and peanut butter in a 3-quart saucepan.  Add honey, vanilla, and sea salt.  Stir until smooth and hot throughout.  It doesn’t need to boil.  Add oats.  Stir until oats are completely coated.  Add nuts if using them.  Mix.  Turn the mixture into an ungreased cookie sheet or 9×13 pan.  Spread the granola out eveninly and bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.  It will be brown and crispy.  Remove it from oven and allow to cool in pan.  Break into pieces once it has cooled and store in a sealed container.

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
