Maple Peanut Butter Granola
Homemade granola is so much tastier than store-bought. And homemade granola with maple peanut butter? What could be better! My favorite way to eat this is on top of plain yogurt with fresh berries, but it’s also fantastic blended into smoothies, on ice cream for dessert, and mixed into pancake batter.
