"I have a master granola recipe that I tweak and experiment with. This is my favorite variation so far! Not too sweet, and chock full of tasty ingredients. You can use an assortment of nuts in place of the walnuts."

  1. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Combine the oats, flour, walnuts, yeast, salt, milk powder, and coconut in a large mixing bowl; set aside. Stir the sugar, water, canola oil, and peanut butter together in a small saucepan over low heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is hot and smooth. Pour the peanut butter over the oats and stir until evenly combined. Spread out onto 4 baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Turn the oven off and allow the granola to cool in the oven until dry, about 3 hours.

I followed this recipe as exactly as I could with the ingredients on hand...peanuts instead of walnuts, ground flaxseed instead of brewer's yeast, no dry milk powder, and regular peanut butter. I think it tastes fantastic! My only criticism is that it didn't clump up like regular granola, though my substitutions probably accounted for getting the proportions off. When I make it again, I'll go a little lighter on the oats to make sure there's enough wet ingredients to make sure it sticks together.

I didn't really like this recipe-- it has a lot of ingredients that made it extremely dry and not very flavorful. The nuts got burned halfway through, so my granola had clumps of burned nuts. I wouldn't make this again, but if I did, I'd do this: ~ reduce the dry milk powder by A LOT, ~ up the sugar just a little bit, or add some honey, ~ add more water, ~ throw the nuts in after the first 10 minutes.

Based on reviews I omitted the milk powder, slightly decreased the dry ingredients (cut a little off the nuts and the whole wheat flour, and omitted the brewer's yeast), then slightly increased the wet ingredients. This came out super tasty! Lightly peanut butter flavored, perfectly toasted oats. I used regular Jif creamy peanut butter and it wasn't overly salty. Very tasty. Good base mix - you could stir in some dried cranberries and or chocolate chips after it cooled - I think a little more nuts in the mix would be nice too.
