Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Granola


For those of you that follow me you know that Saturdays have become my day to post my bookmarks.  I post what I have found across the blogosphere that has inspired me.  I am going to try to devote Fridays to showing you what I have done with those inspirations.  Today I am doing another "Your Recipe - My Kitchen" post.

I bookmarked this amazing granola recipe only a couple of weeks ago and I have already made 2 batches.  This recipe is from Eat,Live,Run.  She has named this granola Elvis Granola and it is full of amazing ingredients.  I tried to get  a close up picture for you so you can see all the goodness; there is peanut butter, dry roasted peanuts, sunflower seeds, ground flax and dark chocolate as well as a few other ingredients. I made mine with whole grain oats and I am thinking of adding some dried cranberries next time. But honestly, this granola is perfect the way it is.  You can get the recipe for Elvis Granola here.

I just want to add that I have had this granola for breakfast with Greek yogurt, I have sprinkled it over oatmeal (the chocolate melts and it is awesome!)  I have even had it for dessert either with a bit of milk or again with Greek yogurt.  Also I think its worth mentioning that this is also a favorite snack of our local superhero -


Enjoy!!

  1. Granola is just a fun food to eat because of its textures, but it's quite expensive to do... well, at least from where I am from.

  2. Looks like we have a new spin for our Sunday granola ritual. My hubs has had me making granola the past 3 weeks every Sunday and he gobbles it up by the end of the week. I never eat it because it usually has fruit and I don't particularly like dried fruits. This batch will be ALL MINE!!! Thanks for linking up to Foodie Friday.

  7. I am excited to have a new granola recipe to try! I make my husband granola bars every week using a recipe from the L.A. Times. It is a really good recipe, but I just get bored making the same recipe over and over.

  17. To be sure your Coal-Tar Barrel (Coal-Tar barrels). Telecoms and economical, the development of a wide range of non-renewable power, with Cheap GW2 Gold a program and your books go to a store in Rimmington.
    Conversation with a store and then add the Fossil power Tar (coal, asphalt) outside the distiller. The heated put some non-renewable power within the distiller will improve. When the heated level of natural, begin the product on the right. If the pressure exceeds the natural level, begin the product on the staying. Do not let the pressure is too low, near the product to determine when under the pressure down to the natural level. Do this until the Coal-Tar distillation Buy Runescape Gold (the hurdle is definitely green).
