Super easy and delicious, here is how to make zero waste granola. I eat this every day, I think because I am addicted to peanut butter and honey, a match made in heaven. This specific recipe you most likely can get all your ingredients in bulk or plastic-free. Also, there are many additions you can make.
If you’re a cereal addict (or your kids are!), hate the packaging, but not sure how to switch it to something else, give granola a try.
- 4 cups quick rolled oats
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup honey
- 1 tsp vanilla or maple syrup
Bake 275 for 15 minutes, stir, bake another 15-20 minutes until sufficiently browned without burning. Keep an eye on it constantly as each oven is different and you don’t want to over bake it!
If you require a peanut-free version, just remove it from the recipe and add 1/2 cup oil of your choice.
When done you can add many other yummy bulk foods into the granola, like nuts or seeds. If you’re vegan or just not a fan of dairy/yogurt, add some fresh or frozen fruit to the granola to give it a bit more of a wet texture.
