Peanut Butter Granola

A crunchy, chewy and peanut butter rich granola perfect for a snack or breakfast. It is naturally gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free while being full of fibre and protein.

Peanut Butter Granola. What is not to love? Peanut butter is an ongoing obsession of mine, and I don’t think it will ever stop. The same goes for granola and after playing around with a few fruity mixtures, chocolate bakes and almond-focused granola mixes, it was about time that peanuts took centre stage. I recently made this while chef-ing on a yoga retreat and didn’t write down a recipe as it was very much throw-it-all-together and bake. After much interest in the original, I decided to get back into the kitchen and take some photos.

This Peanut Butter Granola is really easy to make, requiring only 5 minutes to prepare and 25 minutes in the oven. The sticky mixture is a blend of melted peanut butter (crunchy or smooth) and coconut oil while the sweetness comes from a mashed banana – with optional syrup, too. Without the syrup, the granola isn’t too sweet but still tastes delicious, although if you are used to store-bought or sweeter granola mixtures then I’d add in the syrup (I like fruit, maple or coconut syrup).

The base is naturally gluten-free – check your oats if you are coeliac – and then add some peanuts and sunflower seeds for crunch and texture. I like to add some vanilla protein powder for a little more vanilla flavour as well as a protein-boost. It also coats the oats to form bigger clusters with a more crumbly, moreish texture. That said, you can leave it out if you aren’t a fan.

Peanut Butter Granola is a definite winner in my eyes. Serve it with some yoghurt and fruit, with milk or snack handfuls out of the jar. Anyway you choose to enjoy it, it is equally as delicious.

This Peanut Butter Granola is crunchy, chewy, rich with peanut butter flavours and very easy to eat. The mixture forms big clusters with added texture from the nuts and seeds. It is naturally vegan, low-sugar, gluten-free and packed with fibre.

    I adore Granola for sure and I love Natures Path berry granola and I have got my dad into it. When I tried to bake my own granola I honest,y burnt it so much it left such a stink in my parents kitchen. But I so want to try again and your above recipe looks super. I don’t like Peanuts so Coulter I use another nut butter or not have. I so enjoyed your banana cheesecake based granola with Nuzest Europe chai protein powder. I have got some samples of them from Om yoga fest in London. Aww I have tried vanilla powder before. Super photography! Picture above looks so festive and a very happy Sunday🤗🌱💙! Aww so glad I commented on your new blog post on the day you published it and finally caught up on your new blog updates. Have a great week.
