    I think I need another two days to recover from what was a whirlwind week last week. I mean, it really could not have been any crazier – which is why I haven’t had the time to post anything for a week. My apologies but seriously – life comes first!

    Monday was all dandy but then Tuesday was when everything hit the fan. I found out on Tuesday morning that my grandfather, who had been battling pancreatic cancer, passed away, I had my Food Network/ELLE Decor/House Beautiful video shoot at my house, and then to top it all off, a pipe above our laundry room had a leak and soaked the entire ceiling so we had to rip it all down to patch the pipe. We now have to figure out if it’s worth it to re-route the pipe (long story about how dumb the builder was) or to just patch it up and pray it doesn’t happen again. We also have to find someone to come replace the drywall. On top of all this, I was heading out of town to Nashville on Thursday so I’m pretty overwhelmed, to say the least. I hope this week goes smoother than last week and I hope I have time to just breathe since I feel like all I’ve been doing is go, go, go.

    I can’t wait to share with y’all my Nashville trip. I had the BEST TIME and this just totally solidifies my goal of moving down there one day. I ate SO much and spent time with many good friends. It was unforgettable. I have plenty of pictures so this’ll be a two-parter. Be on the lookout for it!

    Like I mentioned, I ate A LOT this weekend. If you have been following me on Instagram, you’ll have seen all the food I consumed. This totally calls for a detox and this peanut butter granola is perfect for that. I can put it atop Greek yogurt and add some fresh fruit for a healthy breakfast or snack. You HAVE to make this. My mother-in-law sent me this recipe & it’s seriously so addicting and really easy to whip up. I would double up if I were you – I ate my batch way too fast!

    Ingredients

    • 4 tbsp creamy peanut butter
    • 4 tbsp honey
    • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats NOT quick oats

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
    • In a large bowl, combine peanut butter and honey and pop in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds until the peanut butter and honey have all melted. Stir together and then add in the cinnamon and vanilla extract.
    • Add in the oats and stir until all the oats are coated with the mixture.
    • Spread in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. It may take more or less time for yours to turn a golden brown. Ovens vary. Mine took about 15 minutes. It will still look soft when you take it out. It's ok - it hardens up :)
    • Store in mason jars or any airtight container. These would make cute gifts too!

    Notes

    Feel free to add any favorite dried fruits or nuts to this! It's very easy to customize to your tastes.

  • Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking says:

    Such a great looking granola! I would sprinkle this on yogurt, cereal or just have it with a handful of berries. Great recipe, Julie!

  • Lauren at Keep It Sweet says:

    So sorry to hear about your grandfather:-( I hope you were able to enjoy all of the good things last week.

    This granola sounds perfect- I love the simplicity!

  • CG says:

    Overall, a delicious and pantry-friendly granola.

    But, cinnamon? The cinnamon didn’t do anything for me. It added a
    weird flavor that I thought clashed with the peanut butter.

    Then again, I don’t like cheese…so maybe my opinion should be ignored?

    Anyway, very easy and much faster than my standard granola. Love the versatility and the peanut butter. Kids enjoyed it so I’d say it’s a winner.

  • Miss @ Miss in the Kitchen says:

    This looks so fabulous! I have never made granola but I need to!

  • Kiran @ KiranTarun.com says:

    Yummy flavors in this granola!! And don’t apologize, blogging should be fun :)

  • Erin | The Law Student's Wife says:

    Hang in there girl. I’m so sorry about your Grandpa, and I truly hope sunshine (and smooth, calm sailing) comes your way ASAP!
    Can’t wait to see the Nashville post! One of my best gal-pals lives down there. I’ve visited thrice and can’t get enough!

  • Aimee @ ShugarySweets says:

    I’m so sorry to hear about your grandpa, losing a loved one is so difficult! This granola looks amazing, needs to happen in my kitchen soon!

  • Rachel Cooks says:

    I make granola on a weekly basis. Can’t believe I’ve never put PB in it!

  • ashley - Baker by Nature says:

    I want this granola all up in my yogurt and fruit situation! Looks SO good, Julie! xo

  • Mercedes says:

    I would love to have this for breakfast with some yogurt and berries!

  • georgie g. says:

    Just made this…I’m a PB lover, a honey lover, a granola lover…but…this just didn’t do it for me. Seemed like all the flavors just faded out. Smelled divine while cooking, but the finished product lacks sweetness/flavor, and no PB or cinnamon taste at all. I followed recipe exactly, but maybe next time I’ll add more honey and a pinch of salt to bring out the sweetness. The proportions of the recipe are good, and the bake time is spot-on (15 min.). Just needs more sweetness/flavor.

  • Aimee @ Simple Bites says:

    Oh YES! This looks like the afternoon snack I need.

  • The Bread Makers says:

    This looks really good. Can’t wait to try it.

  • alex says:

    sorry to hear about your grandfather. hope you have better weeks coming up. this granola would definitely make me feel better!

  • Riley says:

    This turned out so good and is SO addictive! I’ll definitely be making it again soon. I made a double-batch with only 3 1/2 cups of oats instead of 4 to make them extra peanut buttery. I also mixed in some roasted peanuts and raisins and it works perfectly.

    Thanks for the great recipe, best wishes

  • Alley @ Alley's Recipe Book says:

    Sorry to hear about your grandpa. It is always hard to lose someone you love, especially during an already hectic week. Trying to find time to grieve while also living your life.

    PS: Your post is perfect timing because I have some oats coming in my weekly delivery bin (and I looove peanut butter).

  • Nutmeg Nanny says:

    Busy busy! This granola looks fantastic, I love it :)

  • amy @ fearless homemaker says:

    I’m so sorry about your grandfather. And it does sound like it was a crazy week! This peanut butter granola would definitely make a whirlwind week better for sure – it looks amazing!
