peanut butter granola.

PBGRANOLA

Oh, this recipe had me at peanut butter. And it only had a few ingredients, all of which I had on hand AND came together quickly. SOLD. This granola tastes like a deconstructed granola bar.  I added chocolate chips, unsalted peanuts and toasted coconut chips. I think banana chips would be so good too!  This makes a terrific (watch out, im addicted) snack. I can’t get enough of it!

3 cups old fashioned oats
2 Tbsp sugar
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup creamy natural salted peanut butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1/3 cup toasted coconut chips
1/3 cup unsalted peanuts

  1. Preheat oven to 340 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine oats and sugar.
  3. Warm peanut butter, oil, and maple syrup or agave in a small skillet or saucepan until thoroughly combined and pourable.
  4. Pour over oats and quickly toss/stir to combine.
  5. Spread evenly on a large baking sheet and bake for 18-22 minutes, or until evenly golden brown. Watch closely as it tends to brown quickly near the end. IMPORTANT: Toss once around the 15-minute mark to ensure even baking.
  6. Remove from oven, toss gently to release heat and let cool completely on the pan.
  7. Transfer to mixing bowl or storage container and add chocolate chips, coconut and peanuts (banana chips too maybe?!) and stir or shake.
