Ginger Peach Granola

I know I just posted a granola recipe, but the first one was just so good, and we just got dried peaches in our veggie boxes, I couldn't resist. Also, this recipe shows how you can take an existing recipe and tweak it to make something that tastes completely different!

No picture today, because it basically looks the same as the other granola...


1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup roughly chopped pecans
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 cup roughly chopped dried peaches
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp ground ginger

In a large skillet over high heat, melt the butter. Once the butter is melted, add the nuts, stirring constantly until they just begin to brown. Add all of the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Reduce the heat to medium-high, and continue to stir until the sugar has melted and the oats have begun to toast.

Spread the mixture on a cookie sheet and set aside to cool, about 2 hours. Break up the granola with a metal spoon into bite sized pieces.

Bon Apetit!
