Agave Oat Brittle

Peanut brittle is a classic candy that always reminds me of my Grandfather. I was lucky enough to live right next door to my grandparents and one of my favorite childhood memories is fishing with Granddaddy. He always made sure to have a stash of peanut brittle in the truck for our fishing trips. So, I created this recipe as an ode to him. I definitely put my own twist on it, but I know if he was still around, he would approve and love it.

Ingredients:Agave Oat Brittle

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup agave
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup granola – choose your favorite
  • 1 cup of quick cooking oats

Directions:

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and coat paper with non-stick cooking spray. In a small pot, combine the sugar and agave over medium-high heat. Stir the mixture until just melted; bring to a boil. Insert a candy thermometer and cook until the mixture is caramel colored and at 300 degrees.

Remove from heat and stir in the butter until melted. Stir in the granola and oats, and pour the mixture on to the prepared baking sheet. It is important that you work quickly pouring the mixture, because once you add the granola and oats, the brittle will start to set. Let cool for 20 minutes. Once the brittle is cool, use a wooden spoon to beat on the brittle and break it up. Store at room temp in a zip lock bag.
