Peanut Butter Granola // A great way to start your morning. Make ahead to have a quick breakfast on the go ready all week! | Tried and TastyI’ve been counting my calories daily for the last few weeks (My Weight Loss Story is a daily continual journey). In doing so, it’s easy if I’ve got quick healthy meals ready to go. I’m a HUGE granola fan. Like huge. Love it! But only love it, if it’s good for me! Forget the store bought stuff. I’m all about making it at home. When I saw a recipe for peanut butter granola I was all over it. I LOVE peanut butter. So with a few healthy swaps, I created this tasty breakfast (or snack). I packaged it up in individual servings and it was ready to grab-n-go on my way to work. The key to staying on track with your calorie counting is: preparation. I’ve been anything BUT prepared over the last week – but for the first week of the challenge I rocked the preparedness like it was my JOB!

Don’t like peanut butter? Then you need to check out my other granola recipes! It’s hard for me to pick a favorite between my Honey Almond Granola Recipe, Honey Apple Granola, Coconut Almond Granola, Coconut Butter Granola, and Easy Toss & Bake Granola. My favorite way to enjoy them is topped with 1/2 c. of plain regular or Greek yogurt. Parfaits with fruit like my Fruit & Yogurt Parfait with Honey Almond Granola are also a great way to enjoy granola. This peanut butter granola however has been a nice switch up from the others. It has a yummy sweetness that I like. Since I’m trying to stay away from sweets and treats, it’s a really good alternative. You’ve got to give it a try!
