Hello hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I’m on the mend from a pretty nasty head cold so I was stuck inside. I’m looking forward to this week for a couple reasons. First, I’m almost feeling somewhat human again. And second, I finally get to share this recipe.

After a weekend of eating whatever made me feel better and no gym, I’m ready for something on the healthier side.

Enter: homemade granola with peanut butter, a delicious crunch, and accompanied with peanuts and dark chocolate studded throughout.

I don’t know about you, but granola is one of my favorite snacks. Sometimes I hate that I love it so much— it’s one of those snacks that I keep going back for more and suddenly the bag is gone. Lucky for you when you run out, it’s a snap to make more!

This granola recipe is a one bowl deal and you only need 7 ingredients: oats, peanut butter, coconut oil, honey, maple syrup, peanuts, and vanilla (chocolate chips are optional but highly recommended!) All you have to do is stir it together, then bake bake bake! It’s done in about 40 minutes. I like to let it cool completely so it crunches up.

There’s so many ways to eat it too! Add it to some of your favorite yogurt. Pour a little almond milk over it. Pack a bag of it for an on-the-go snack. To satisfy that sweet tooth: add some mini M&Ms to it or sprinkle it over ice cream.

Peanut Butter Granola

feature

  • Prep Time: 10m
  • Cook Time: 40m
  • Total Time: 1h

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I use all natural)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped peanuts
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Optional: 1/2 cup total of chocolate chips, M&Ms, peanut butter chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, heat the coconut oil and honey for about 30 seconds. Stir together until melted together and smooth. Stir in the peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth. Add the oats, peanuts, and cinnamon.
  3. Pour onto the prepared baking sheet and spread slightly (you don't want the layer to be too thin.) Bake for 35-40 minutes, stirring gently every 10-12 minutes.* Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes before adding in the chocolate chips or any other add-ins. Allow to cool completely before storing in an air-tight container.

Additional Notes

  1. *I like a few large chunks in my granola, if you're the same, mix gently.
  2. Depending on the peanut butter that you use, you may need to cut back the honey and/or maple syrup for the sweetness.
  3. Granola is the perfect recipe to make ahead because it stays fresh for a while. Store this in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.
