Easy Peasy No-Bake Granola

2 1/2 cups of oats (be sure to get gluten free if desired)
1/4 cup of melted butter or margarine
1/2 cup of nut butter
One pinch of salt if you’re using unsalted nut butter
1/4 cup of maple syrup, agave, or honey
  1. Gather up all of your ingredients of goodness, and chuck them all in a medium sized bowl. This is also a good time to eat some peanut butter from the jar because peanut butter is godly.
  2. Stir everything together - the mixture should hold together when it’s pressed into a ball. If it’s too dry, add a little more syrup until it sticks together… Who doesn’t need a little more sweetness in their lives!
  3. Pop your oat mixture into a dish lined with parchment paper to prevent any annoying stickiness, and press it down with either a spoon or your fingers, because that’s a lot of fun (if you do so, licking your fingers when you’re done is mandatory because it’s delicious).
  4. Place the whole thing in the fridge or freezer until it’s hardened (about 10 minutes).
  5. Serve however you like, I love this with yogurt and fresh fruit for a fantastic breakfast.
  6.  KNOW IT’S HARD BECAUSE IT TASTES SO GOOD BUT TRY NOT TO EAT IT ALL IN ONE GO SAVE SOME FOR LATER

Have fun with this! You can add:

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
  • Finely chopped dried figs or dates
  • Raisins
  • Pumpkin seeds, chopped pistachios etc.
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries.
  • Chopped walnuts, with 1 teaspoon cinnamon added to the nut butter and sweetener mixture. 
  • If you’re feeling exotic, try goji berries

Enjoy!
