A recipe that tastes as simple as it is

Peanut Butter and Coconut Granola

1 1/2 c rolled oats
1/2 c coconut
1/4 c wheat germ
1/2 c pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1/4 c peanut butter (I used crunchy but creamy works fine too)
1/4 c puffed rice
3 T honey
2 T coconut oil
1/2 t salt

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
2. Stir all ingredients together (heat your cocout oil to dissolve if it is solid)
3. Toss the ingredients into a 9x13 glass baking dish
4. Stir every 10 minutes until granola is nicely browned, roughly 20-25 minutes total
5. Let it cool, and enjoy!
I like mine over yogurt, sometimes I add a drizzle of maple syrup if I am feeling frisky.

No matter how you eat this, what you put it on, what time of day you partake in it, the hardest thing about this recipe is not immediately shoveling it into your mouth by the handful before it cools.You're Welcome :)

Happy Saturday! I hope each one of you is having a fabulous day.
