Peanut Butter Granola

This is my first attempt at making granola at home and it most certainly won't be the last.  This is absolutely delicious!  I can't stop eating it.  My favorite way - over vanilla yogurt for breakfast.  Try it, you won't be sorry.

Peanut Butter Granola
from Southern Living Annual Recipes 2009

3 cups uncooked oats
1/2 c dry-roasted peanuts (I used chopped pecans)
1/2 c sweetened flaked coconut
3 T sesame seeds

Combine above ingredients in a large bowl.

1/2 c creamy peanut butter
1/2 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 c butter
1 T light corn syrup
1/4 t salt

Cook above ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat 3 minutes or until smooth. 

Stir peanut butter mixture into oat mixture until blended. 

Spread mixture in a single layer on a lightly greased, aluminum foil-lined jelly roll pan with sides.  Bake 10 minutes, stir, bake 10 more minutes and stir again.  (I baked an addition 10 minutes as mine was still a little "wet").  Transfer to wax paper, and cool completely (about 30 minutes). 

Enjoy over vanilla yogurt.  Add sliced bananas for a even yummier breakfast or snack.
