Notes

*I have only made this with commercially prepared, creamy peanut butter.  
**M&M pieces can be swapped with chocolate chips, however, make sure granola is fully cooled before mixing them in.  
***M&M pieces can be supplemented or swapped with some healthier options such as raisins, craisins or dried pineapple bits.
