Four ingredients are all that you need for this easy homemade Peanut Butter Granola Recipe. 

Peanut Butter Granola Recipe

Homemade Granola

My kids love granola. We have been making homemade granola for years. I love that I can control the ingredients when I make my own granola. It is easy to adapt to how we like it and to our food allergies.

Over the years I have made many different homemade granola recipes that my family loved. But this recipe today is my son’s favorite. He will eat this peanut butter granola for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. 

Can I make homemade granola nut free or make it with other nut butters?

Yes, you can. I have made this recipe for years. When my daughter developed her peanut nut, tree nut allergy, I started using Sunbutter or Wowbutter and it works great. Other nut butters work as well. 

Is homemade granola gluten free?

If you use gluten free oats and read labels to be sure the ingredients are gluten free, homemade granola is easy to make gluten free. 

Peanut Butter Granola Recipe

The recipe originally came from an Ebook that Money Saving Mom put together years ago. I actually think the Ebook was done before she started Money Saving Mom. I enjoyed the Ebook and this was my favorite recipe from it.

This is one of the easiest granola recipes that I have made. Not only is this granola easy to put together, but it is does not cook for long at all, so it is also a quick granola to make.

Peanut Butter Granola Recipe

Peanut Butter Granola Recipe

Peanut Butter Granola is an easy four ingredient homemade breakfast.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons oil, coconut oil works great, but other oils work too
  • 1 cup peanut butter, Soy butter or Sun Butter works too
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar
  • 7 cups oats, for a gluten free granola use gluten free oats, old fashioned, quick, or a mix of both. See note below.

Instructions

  1. Cook oil and peanut butter over low heat until it is melted and smooth.
  2. Remove from heat and add sugar.
  3. Add oats and stir well until oats are coated.
  4. Spread onto cookie sheet.
  5. Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes stirring at least once.

Notes

Old fashioned oats will give you more texture. Quick oats will be a finer texture. I usually use a mix of both.

BBQ Chicken Salad is a simple lunch or dinner. It is full of flavor and goes together in no time! 

BBQ Chicken Cabbage Salad

Are you looking for meals where meat is not the star of the recipe? 

This salad is a great way to stretch meat in a meal.

BBQ Chicken Salad contains meat, as is obvious from the title, but it is mixed with coleslaw and sauce to make a delicious main dish salad. 

BBQ Chicken Salad would also be a great dish for a potluck or picnic.

BBQ Chicken Salad Recipe

I had trouble coming up with the name for this. It contains cabbage and is similar to coleslaw, but since it contains bbq sauce and meat, it is also very different than coleslaw. 

No matter what you call this it is a simple and delicious meal! 

Most main dish salads contain lettuce, but cabbage is the star of this recipe. The coleslaw mix makes this easy to make and gives the salad a nice crunch.

It also holds up well for a day or two in the fridge, so it is a great make ahead recipe. You can make this and serve it right away or you can make it earlier in the day or the day before you serve it. 

This salad is also gluten free as long as your bbq sauce does not contain gluten. It is normal food that just happens to be gluten free.

Chocolate Chip Pudding is so easy to make at home and it tastes so much better than the box you buy at the store. 

Chocolate Chip Pudding

Fancy desserts are great, but sometimes you just need a simple classic dessert. 

Homemade pudding is just that. It is a classic dessert that is easy to make using basic ingredients. 

All you need for homemade pudding are a few ingredients like dairy, sugar, and cornstarch. They are all ingredients that you probably have in your fridge or cupboard. 

For this homemade chocolate chip pudding recipe you also need chocolate chips. Because chocolate makes everything better. 

Chocolate Chip Pudding Recipe

Why make pudding at home?

When you make pudding at home you can control the ingredients that go into it. When you make it at home it also tastes better. It really is so much better than the store bought kind. 

Is Pudding Gluten Free? 

Not all pudding is gluten free but this homemade pudding is gluten free.

Chocolate Chip Pudding

Chocolate Chip Pudding Recipe

Chocolate Chip Pudding is easy to make and tastes so much better than the box.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup cream or half and half (both work cream makes it richer)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or regular chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a pan combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Whisk in milk, cream (or half and half).
  2. Cook on medium to medium high heat, while continuing to whisk. Cook until the mixture starts to boil and thicken. You don't need to whisk constantly but you do need to stir or whisk often so that it doesn't burn.
  3. As soon as the mixture boils reduce heat to low. Continue stirring until mixture thickens. This will take 2-3 more minutes. It will thicken more as it cools, but you do want it to be a pudding like texture.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and butter.
  5. Let cool for 5 minutes or so and stir in chocolate chips.
  6. Pour mixture into individual sized bowls or into a large bowl. Serve warm or cover with plastic wrap pressed directly on pudding to prevent a skin from forming on the top. Refrigerate until serving.

Mexican Rice with Tomatoes and Green Chiles

I have made this easy Mexican rice with green chilies more times than I can count over the last few weeks. 

We love my basic Mexican Rice recipe that I have made for years. Sometimes though I like to change it up with a slightly different version.

Mexican Rice with Green Chiles and Tomatoes works perfectly when I want to change it up a little. 

Mexican Rice with Tomatoes & Green Chiles

What is Mexican Rice?

Some people call it Spanish rice. I am not sure what the authentic name and ingredients are, but the Mexican Rice that I have always had contains rice that you “fry” in oil until opaque. 

You then add seasonings, liquid, and some sort of tomato product. 

This recipe I am sharing today also contains green chiles. 

Mexican Rice with Green Chiles

We like this rice with just about any Mexican or Tex Mex type food. 

It is delicious with quesadillas and homemade refried beans. We also love it with Chicken Verde

I recently served it with my Freezer Burrito Casserole and although it wasn’t the prettiest of meals it was delicious!

Apple Spinach Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing

Apple Spinach Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing is a delicious mix of sweet and tart. 

The combination of apple cider vinegar and honey in the dressing mixed with apples and dried cranberries give this salad so much flavor. 

Apple Spinach Salad- Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe

Spinach is becoming my favorite go to greens for salad. I love how fresh spinach tastes, but I also love how long it lasts after I buy it. 

Right now most of us are trying to limit our trips to the grocery store. But even under normal circumstances, I have to strategically buy my produce because we live in the country and don’t have a grocery store down the street. 

I love lettuce. It will probably always be my favorite salad base, but it doesn’t last long after you buy it. Spinach on the other hand will usually last a lot longer.

When I pick up lettuce at the store, I almost always grab a bag or two of spinach. It works great in my Apple Chicken Salad, my Strawberry Spinach Salad, and in this Apple Spinach Salad I am sharing today. 

Apple Spinach Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe

I love this salad just the way I am sharing the recipe. I like it best all mixed together in a bowl and served. 

However, some in my family prefer to make it themselves.

Some like it tossed all together, but others like it without the apples, without the cherries, or without any fruit at all.

In order to please everyone I often just place the ingredients all out and let everyone make their own version.
