Healthy Peanut Butter Granola

If you like peanut butter (who doesn’t?), then you’ll love this recipe. My big cluster peanut butter granola is super tasty. The recipe itself is totally vegan and contains healthy ingredients like oats, nuts, and coconut oil. Almond butter (or another nut butter) could easily be swapped for the peanut butter if you prefer. The granola holds together so well that you could even break it into larger chunks to make crunchy granola bars and drizzle the bars with melted chocolate. Enjoy!

 

Healthy Peanut Butter Granola

Makes 5 cups


Ingredients

3 cups old fashioned oats, divided

½ cup flour

⅔ cup peanuts (or other nuts of your choice)

½ tsp. salt

¾ cup peanut butter

¼ cup coconut oil

½ cup maple syrup

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

optional: 1/3 cup unsweetened flaked coconut

optional: 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 300°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Add the oats, flour, peanuts, and salt to a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.

Add the peanut butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup to a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat the ingredients until they are melted and whisk to combine. Remove from heat and add the vanilla extract. Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until the dry ingredients are well moistened and evenly coated. Transfer the mixture to your prepared baking sheet and press the mixture down firmly into an even layer. The mixture will be sticky. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.

Remove the granola from the oven and allow it to cool completely. Once cooled, break the granola into clusters (large or small, depending on your preference). Sprinkle over the chocolate chips and coconut flakes (if using).


The granola can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.
