• Healthy (& Highly Addictive) Peanut Butter Granola

    March 24, 2014

    Hi, guys! How is Monday treating you so far?

    My day started with a delicious breakfast of Greek yogurt, sliced banana, homemade peanut butter granola, and a glass of freshly pressed green juice on the side.

    So, let’s talk about this granola… whoa. I made it yesterday afternoon, and I haven’t been able to keep my hand out of the jar since. It’s incredibly addictive!

    You really must make this granola. It’s that amazing. Just try not to eat it all at once!

    Healthy Peanut Butter Granola

    Ingredients:

    • 2 cups rolled oats
    • 1/2 cup peanut butter, heaping and softened
    • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
    • 2 tbsp honey
    • 2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 tbsp cinnamon
    • 1 tsp sea salt

    Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
    2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; mix until fully blended. (To soften peanut butter, nuke it the microwave for 20-25 seconds. It’ll help to blend it more easily.)
    3. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and then spread granola evenly.
    4. Bake for 12-15 minutes, toss once midway through.
    5. Allow to cool on baking sheet, so you get some good-size granola chunks!

    Makes about 2 cups

    Wow, I just tried this recipe, and it truly is highly addictive and so delicious! I have made a lot of granola, but I this has got to be the best. Everyone in the family loves it! The only thing I did differently was that I also added a 1/2 C. of raw peanuts to the mix. This recipe is also very easily increased by 50% to make a typical 3-cups-oats granola recipe. Trust me, after trying this, you will have wished you quadrupled the recipe, it’s amazing!

    The texture was perfect but it was SO salty. I wonder if your recipe was with unsalted peanut butter? I’d cut the salt in half next time.
