Yummy Peanut Butter Granola

I’ve shared several recipes for granola here like this one that is a favorite for my husband, but I recently was out of my normal ingredients so I looked for a recipe that I could make with things I had on hand.  I came across a Peanut Butter Granola that honestly tastes like a Peanut Butter Cookie crumbled up!  However, it has Coconut oil and oats, so that makes it a bit more healthy! This is perfect to eat alone or on top of fruit and yogurt.  I tweaked the recipe a bit and here’s what I came up with:

Peanut Butter Granola

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup  peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 Cup mini Chocolate Chips

INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, salt, and cinnamon.
  1. Stir in peanut butter, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla. Tip:  If you melt the coconut oil in a measuring cup first, then use that same measuring cup for the honey, it will slide right out!
  2. Once fully combined, press onto lined parchment paper – spread into flat layer.
  3. Baked for 18-22 minutes or until starting to turn golden brown.
  4. While it’s slightly warm, add chocolate chips and let cool. Once cooled completely, break granola apart.

I sprinkle a tablespoon over my morning yogurt for a little sweetness and crunch. What a yummy way to start the day!
