I classify these as treats because of the nutrition facts. The peanut butter and honey contains sugars, but I really enjoy this treat as an easy homemade granola cluster to spice up my bulk granola snacks.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablspn maple syrup
  • 1 teaspn EVOO
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts any kind
  • 1/4 teaspn ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspn kosher salt
  • cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Combine peanut butter, syrups and oil in a small pan. Cook over low heat until melted and the mixture can easily be stirred together. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a deep bowl, combine oats, almonds, cranberries, cinnamon and salt. Toss to mix well. Pour peanut butter mixture over oat mixture and, using a rubber spatula coated with cooking spray, stir until everything is evenly coated. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto  prepared baking sheet. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until golden and crisp. Set tray on wire rack and let cool completely. Store cooled in an air-tight container or tin up to 3 days. Serves 8.
