Homemade Granola


Hey Guys!


I’m Ashleigh from Waking Up In Vegas!

If you can’t tell from my blog name, I am from Las Vegas and love every minute of it!

I am so grateful that Heather let me take over her little corner of the world (If I were her I would be very territorial of this blog, because it’s kinda awesome!? I’m sure you agree.)

I am venturing into the world of writing about healthy living and fitness; and thought I would share one of my favorite granola recipes! I am a huge fan of quick and easy snacks, something that involves no baking is even better! [but don’t let me full you, I can whip up a mean cupcake]

This granola was inspired by “Chewy S’mores Granola Bars;” I love them so much, but really I can make it for so much cheaper!

Can I let you in on a secret, and please don’t hate me..but..I don’t like chocolate [gasp!] I know..I know..how am I even considered a woman! 😉 Anyway this recipe is sans chocolate but of course you may go ahead and get down with your bad self and add it..



1cup Old Fashioned Oats

½ cup Quaker Oatmeal Squares

1 tbsp. Honey

1 tbsp Peanut Butter [or whatever nutbutter you prefer]

1 tbsp Butter

Marshmallow Bits


Melt the Butter, Honey and PB in a pan:


combine both oats and cereal:


Add Marshmallows to melted ingredients:


Add Dry ingredients to wet ingredients:


mix and taste:


Put in a wax paper-lined Tupperware and store in the refrigerator!

It is just that easy!

Now like I said you can add chocolate if you must! You would add it to the dry ingredients in the beginning!

I like to have this granola plain, on yogurt, or mix it with some dried fruit and call it a day!

Sometimes this guy likes to help out in the kitchen and be a taste tester


I hope you have enjoyed this recipe!
