As someone who blogs a bazillion times a day, I sometimes get sad that the “blog air time” for some of the posts that I write is so short. Each post I write is prominently displayed on the homepage of PBF for a few hours and then simply falls into the PBF abyss of past posts.
In an effort to revisit some of my past recipe posts, I thought it might be fun to do a monthly recipe roundup post. The recipes featured may not be from the past month, but rather recipes that have fallen to the wayside throughout the two years I’ve been blogging.
Since I’m kind of a stickler for some kind of organization, the recipes featured in the posts will likely have something in common.
Today’s recipe roundup features GRANOLA!
Granola Recipe Roundup
The best part about making granola?
You can easily eat a bunch of it and no one will notice.
I think granola makes a great hostess gift or a nice little holiday gift for coworkers. You get to eat some and then they get the rest… err… a nice gift.
I’ve never made my own granola before. I’ve always wanted to though. It seems simple enough. I definitely want to try a recipe of yours!
You are right! It deifnitely makes a great gift plus you get to snack on it while making it 😉
you have to make your own. it’s SO much cheaper than the store-bought stuff. woo!
Sweet and Savvy says
I need to make some of these! Glad you did this recap:)
Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray says
Yay, I love round-up posts! Helpful when I bookmark this post (as I do with so many of yours :)) to have all the granola recipes in one place.
Jessica Corbin says
I am totally going to make that nutella one sometime….YUM-O!
Becky @ Fit Chick on the Fly says
I gotta make that peanut butter granola sometime. I’ve been going a little peanut butter crazy lately, can’t go a day with out it.
For someone who uses jelly frequently and peanut butter extra frequently I never see you eat pb&j’s? ! ? ! ~Weird!
Casey @ Pocket Full of Sunshine says
Fun idea Julie! I have wondered before if that is kind of a bummer for you three-posts-a-day girls. But I read and enjoy every one! 🙂
Cait's Plate says
I think the Nutella is the one that still has my heart most 🙂 I’ve only made granola once, I need to change this and make it more. I always seem to have an excess of the stuff on hand so I never get a chance, but as soon as I run out, I’m doing it!
Can’t wait to try out some of these recipes!!! (I may have to make small batches so that no one else in the house will ever know I made any granola at all! haha)
Katie @ Peace Love and Oats says
Haha I think if I ate a bunch of granola, people would notice when my pants don’t fit – especially if I got a hold of all your granola! It looks so good!
Mallory @ It's Only Life says
Don’t worry, I scroll through your previous posts all the time, they aren’t lost and gone forever in my mind 🙂 (And hopefully you don’t think I must have no life…I just find your posts to be really entertaining and you were such a big reason why I started blogging in the 1st place.)
yayyy! that makes me happy. 🙂
No lunch post?
my lunch today was boring (turkey sandwich + apple w/ pb) so i thought this post would be more fun. lunch post to return tomorrow! 🙂
Catherine 'T' says
Believe it or not I have never made granola! I was thinking of doing it for little Christmas gifts though 🙂 Everyone loves granola right?!
Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife says
That is a great idea to let the posts that get ‘forgotten’ about come forward again! So much time goes into all that writing, and some of us are newer readers 🙂
I need to try and make my own granola bars sometime soon!!
Tessa @ Amazing Asset says
I hae only made granola a few times and it turned out kinda bad 🙁 I am going to try a few of yours though! Nutella version up first 🙂
Lauren @ What Lauren Likes says
Yum! I totally have creeped this recipes before but definetly needed the reminder to creep them again 🙂
Baby's Moon says
My favorites that I make are “Aloha Granola” from Carnie Wilson’s To Serve with Love (dried pineapple, dried banana, coconut etc…) and my own made up copy cat of Emerald Berry Blend trail mix (dried strawberries, dried bluberries or blueberry flavored craisins, yogurt covered raisins, maple flaxseed covered walnuts) … no self control when I make these, so addicting!
Nice! You’ve got great granola recipes! What do you like cooking the most?
Shaya (Eye Girl Eats) says
Mmm 🙂 I love the way the granola looks with chia seeds in it– so crunchy and satisfying!
…Is it weird that I kind of like when it gets stuck in your teeth and you find a chia seed like 10 minutes later? probably kind of gross but i like it haha 🙂
bahahahaha. happens to me all the time and I kind of like it too. i’m pretty sure that makes us weird!
Kate @ NaturaStride says
Great idea – granola as a gift for co-workers! Love it – much healthier than all the sweets people give out around the holidays!
You create the most awesome granola recipes!! 😀 <3
Amanda @thefunkybeagle says
You’re old posts aren’t lost on me.. If I’m looking to make something new, I often check out your recipes 🙂
P.S. That Nutella one looks beyond delicious
Great idea to do this roundup!! I’m definitely going to steal some of the recipes. I’ve been wanting to make my own granola for a bit of time right now but no recipe had convinced me yet — there are quite a few here that I’m gonna bust out!
I like how all your granola recipes are quick and easy Julie! The nutella one has me super intrigued.
Alyssa @ Life of bLyss says
aalllll haaaiiillllll to juuullliiieeee for doing this roundup. I have all the different ones bookmarked, and I most def missed a few.
have a fab weekend! 😉
nutella granola. best. invention. EVER!
Heather@The World Through My Eyes says
Your blog is becoming my go-to site for recipes these days! Loving the granola recipes, and the pumpkin muffins from the other day were so delicious!!!
kathleen @ the daily crumb says
granola is dangerous territory in this household. it never makes it more than 7 minutes!! thinking of making your classic PB granola for a football sunday brunch we’re having this weekend!
I like the round-up post idea! Suggestion for next month: crock-pot recipes. I feel like I’m always searching for one of your crock-pot recipes.
Megan @ On the Road Again says
The Nutella granola is so sinfully yummy! I love it so much. And now I think I’m going to try the granola bar bites!
Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie says
I just ate some Kashi granola and while it was good it didn’t look anywhere near as good as your nutella granola! I need to make that in the near future!
Lindsay@ In Sweetness and In Health says
Ooo I like the idea to do a recipe round-up :). You should try a pumpkin-style granola for the fall! So bc you said you liked them, I decided to give site5 a try!!
Leanne (Bride to Mrs.) says
Any gift that comes in a mason jar is a great gift. 🙂
Holly @ The Runny Egg says
I’m going to Costco after work and I am thisclose to adding Nutella to my shopping list — that means I will have a HUGE tub. I can’t wait 🙂
Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews says
I want to try the almond butter granola!
Gina @ Running to the Kitchen says
I’ve never made my own granola! I’m kinda shocked to realize that actually and considering I just ran out of the last kind I bought at the bulk bins, I may have to make one of these.
Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola says
I think this is a great idea! You have some amazing recipes so I love the opportunity to eat more of them 🙂 I’ve actually never made my own granola- even though I eat it every day? But I’m going to change that now with one of these recipes!
How have I not made your Nutella granola yet? I’m serious. This is a travesty.
Meghan N says
This is a great idea!
Your granola recipes are my GO TO. I love making the PB granola and eat it by the pan-full.. Really, it’s delicious, easy and economical! Love.
Kristin @ STUFT Mama says
Oh yay! Thanks Julie for putting all your recipes in one post. I still have never tried making my own granola. Now I juts need to choose which one to try first. 🙂 I’m thinking the Nutella……. 🙂
Lindsey @ Cardio Pizza says
Great idea! I also love organization 🙂
I love this idea, and I agree that it would be a great gift; especially for the coming holidays. Do you think a peppermint bark themed granola could work… white chocolate and peppermint extract, maybe?
Kari Burghardt says
I really enjoy all of your granola recipes, thank you for sharing!!! 🙂
Liz @ Iheartvegetables says
I want the almond butter granola!!! YUM!
Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) says
This is a dangerous post. I’m going to pretend I didn’t see it.
Katie @ Talk Less, Say More says
I tried making it once and it didn’t turn out the way I had hoped…I guess it’s time to try again because I want to eat every one of those you posted!! 🙂
Sarah K. @ The Pajama Chef says
love granola! Yum!
Which one do you think would be the best for a bake sale? Is it ok with you if I make it and include the recipe with your website, of course? The sales are being donated to United Way.
Homemade granola is the best, although super dangerous if you know what I mean !
I was no joke, JUST thinking about making some homemade granola!! Thankyou so much for these links!!!
