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


  • 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


  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



  1. I tried making this granola and it is as delicious and addictive as you say. One question though – I used butter instead of oil and it didn’t stick together in clusters very well, do you think oil would work better?

  2. I made this recipe and it is to die for. It is addictive and I ate it all in a matter of days. On to making a second batch this weekend. Thank you Tina!

  3. You’re so right … highly addictive! Am making my second batch now … the first one went kind of fast! Big hit at our house … thanks so much for the awesome, healthy, easy, GF recipe!!

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. I agree with Colleen! It was sooooo salty when usually granola doesn’t have any salt in it. I am making another batch with no salt to mix in. Was super disappointed! Good point about the peanut butter. Would like to know the answer to that:) Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  7. have made this 3 times already! It’s awesome & addicting & healthy! I also add 1 cup of puffed rice & ground flax seed. I do 1-1/2 times the wet ingredients and spread it on parchment paper. Bake for 7 mins then stir it and rotate the cookie sheet. Bake another 8 mins then let it cool completely. Comes out perfect every time! Hardest part of this recipe is waiting for it to cool! :). Thanks for sharing!
