This peanut butter granola has the flavor of a peanut butter cookie. It’s crunchy and sweet, and the apricots add the perfect fruity touch.

This granola is a wonderful breakfast or mid-afternoon snack. I feel a little guilty when I eat this, even though I know it’s perfectly healthy for me. It’s that good.

If you’re looking for ways to get your children involved in the kitchen, homemade granola is a great place to start. Even young children can help measure and pour the ingredients. The proportions are forgiving, so measurements don’t need to be precise.

Children can stir everything together and help press the mixture down in the baking pan. When it’s done cooking, they can help transfer the granola into a storage container. It’s great to sit back and watch your little chef take over the kitchen.

  1. My daughter fixed chicken and cabbage fried rice for us for dinner the other day. She’d made a version in her cooking class at school using Bok Choy, but since we had leftover St Pat’s cabbage she made do with that.
    I wish my kids were cereal eaters, because this granola looks so yummy! Alas, they are more muffin or egg types.
    Thanks, Annemarie!
