Granola Wars

There has been a battle brewing at our house as to who can claim the top spot in all of granola land. On one side stands my wife with her granola bar recipe which is dense and oh so yummy, perfect for a snack. On the other side, stands me with a recipe that was supposed to be bars but with a slight modification has become a granola that has become a breakfast staple with fresh fruit and a bit of soymilk.


2 cups quick cooking oats 
½ cup brown sugar 
½ cup honey 
½ cup peanut butter/almond butter (my favorite!!)  (you can even use  1 stick butter, softened - I haven't) 
½ cup M&Ms (raisins, cranberries, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, etc.)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
2. Line a cookie sheet with a Silpat so the granola won't stick
3. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. 
4. Spread and bake for about 18 minutes, or until lightly golden on edges.
5. Cool five minutes on sheet, turn over with spatula, and completely cool before serving
6. Store in an airtight container.
7. Enjoy!!
