Peanut Butter Granola

375° - 10 minutes.


* 2 tablespoons margarine
* 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
* 1/3 cup honey
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 3 cups rolled oats
* 1/2 cup raisins (optional)


Begin by melting the margarine and peanut butter together in a 3-quart saucepan. Add the honey, vanilla and salt. Stir the mixture until it is smooth and hot throughout. It doesn’t need to boil. Add the oats. Stir until the oats are completely coated with the sticky gooey peanut butter mixture. It will be chunky. Turn the mixture into an ungreased cookie sheet, or a large 9 by 13-inch pan. Spread the granola out evenly and bake it at 375° for 10 minutes. It will be brown and crispy. Now remove it from the oven and allow it to cool right there in the pan. Break it up into pieces after it is cooled. Transfer the granola to a clean coffee can or sealed canister. Add the raisins, if you are using them, when the granola is cool.
