Low-Carb Peanut Butter Granola

I really enjoy peanut butter and I really adore history. That said, I like to think of Peanut Butter Granola as the perfect blend of my two passions. While traditional versions tend to be carb-laden & overly-sweetened, my recipe is a protein power-house relying on raw peanuts and creamy peanut butter to deliver crunch and flavor. If you ask me, it’s the perfect snack while reading up on granola’s origin & history, which I might add, dates back to the 1800s.
