HEALTHY PEANUT BUTTER GRANOLA: INGREDIENTS & SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Oats: Great success with both quick-cooking and old-fashioned oats in this recipe! Using the quick-cooking variety produces a chunkier granola.
  • Honey: You can easily substitute maple syrup for a vegan option!
  • Peanut Butter: Any nut or seed butter can be used in place of peanut butter. If you use a firmer variety of peanut butter {not a runny, natural kind} then just be sure to melt it completely with the honey before adding the rest of the wet ingredients.

And that’s really it! There’s nothing much to this deliciously healthy peanut butter granola! Serve on top of yogurt, drenched in almond milk, or snack on it pain! There’s no wrong way to enjoy this healthy breakfast!

HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER GRANOLA

It is very easy to make this recipe. Let’s discuss the process.

Begin by melting together the honey and peanut butter over very low heat, stirring constantly until smooth.

Next, add the vanilla and stir then add the dry ingredients & stir to combine.

BAKE

Transfer the peanut butter granola mixture to a greased baking sheet and press it onto the pan and bake.

The only note is that if you get to the final stage (before transferring the granola from the saucepan to the baking sheet), and the granola looks crumbly and not wet, add more peanut butter or honey until you reach the consistency pictured below. This is key in achieving clumps!

STORE & FREEZE:

Store this granola in an airtight container or glass jar with a lid at room temperature for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 2 months.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

Here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy this:

  1. On top of yogurt. Recommend eating this served on top of your favorite yogurt with fresh berries! It adds the perfect crunch!
