Peanut Butter Granola

We eat a lot of greek yogurt around our home, as it’s one of a few snacks that is filled with protein that my kids really enjoy! We have many toppings we throw into our yogurt, but granola is by far the top choice! I fell in love with KIND brand’s peanut butter granola, but with 5 kids and the price of a small bag, I was having a hard time justifying spending that much. I decided instead to try making my own, and was really pleased with the results! Here is the recipe I used! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! (Adapted from flavorthemoments.com)

  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place the oats in a large bowl.
  3. Place the peanut butter, honey, coconut oil, and cinnamon in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat for 25-40 seconds or until melted.  Stir well to combine then pour over the oats.  Add the salt and stir until the oats are coated well with the peanut butter mixture.
  4. Pour the oats onto the prepared pan and spread in an even layer, about 1/4″ thick, packing it down well.  Packing it down will help give us those big clusters!
  5. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 25 minutes or until golden….do not stir!  Remove from heat and cool completely without stirring.
  6. Once cooled, break the granola up into chunks and place in an airtight container at room temperature.
  7. Enjoy with yogurt, milk, or by the handful. 🙂
