Peanut Butter-Chocolate Granola
Serves: 2 quarts
  • 4 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup ground flax seed
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped roasted salted peanuts
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup flavorless oil, such as vegetable or canola
  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 cup raisins
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 275 degrees. Mix oats, flax, cinnamon, salt, and peanuts in a large bowl. Heat syrup, oil, peanut butter, and water simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat. Drizzle over oat mixture and stir to combine.
  2. Pour mixture into large (12- by 18- inch) rimmed baking sheet coated with vegetable cooking spray. Working a handful at a time, squeeze cereal to form small clumps. Bake for 30 minutes. Stir in raisins. Continue to bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes longer. Let cool and stir in chocolate chips. (Can be stored in an airtight tin for 1 month.)
