Only a few more days and my son will be home for the summer. Actually, since he’s a senior this year, he’ll be home period. Now, more than ever I need to have options for a quick, healthy breakfast. While there are a few cold cereal brands I buy occasionally, I much prefer to make my own healthy cereal at home. This peanut butter coconut oil granola is one of my favorites.

Peanut butter and coconut are a delicious combination. I made it a little bit healthier by adding coconut oil to the mix as well. Coconut oil has been said to help increase the good cholesterol in your body and who doesn’t need a little bit of that? After that, you can add whatever else you like from pumpkin seeds to raisins. You could add dehydrated apples, walnuts, and dried cranberries as well. It’s entirely up to you.
