Peanut Butter Granola

  • Peanut butter granola is so versatile and a great healthy snack alternative. You can put it on top of Greek yogurt or you can eat it for a snack. Either way – this will be gone in no time so be sure to whip up a large batch! I couldn’t stop eating it :) It’s super easy to make, as well!

    I think I need another two days to recover from what was a whirlwind week last week. I mean, it really could not have been any crazier – which is why I haven’t had the time to post anything for a week. My apologies but seriously – life comes first!

    Monday was all dandy but then Tuesday was when everything hit the fan. I found out on Tuesday morning that my grandfather, who had been battling pancreatic cancer, passed away, I had my Food Network/ELLE Decor/House Beautiful video shoot at my house, and then to top it all off, a pipe above our laundry room had a leak and soaked the entire ceiling so we had to rip it all down to patch the pipe. We now have to figure out if it’s worth it to re-route the pipe (long story about how dumb the builder was) or to just patch it up and pray it doesn’t happen again. We also have to find someone to come replace the drywall. On top of all this, I was heading out of town to Nashville on Thursday so I’m pretty overwhelmed, to say the least. I hope this week goes smoother than last week and I hope I have time to just breathe since I feel like all I’ve been doing is go, go, go.

    I can’t wait to share with y’all my Nashville trip. I had the BEST TIME and this just totally solidifies my goal of moving down there one day. I ate SO much and spent time with many good friends. It was unforgettable. I have plenty of pictures so this’ll be a two-parter. Be on the lookout for it!

    Like I mentioned, I ate A LOT this weekend. If you have been following me on Instagram, you’ll have seen all the food I consumed. This totally calls for a detox and this peanut butter granola is perfect for that. I can put it atop Greek yogurt and add some fresh fruit for a healthy breakfast or snack. You HAVE to make this. My mother-in-law sent me this recipe & it’s seriously so addicting and really easy to whip up. I would double up if I were you – I ate my batch way too fast!

    Peanut butter granola is so versatile and a great healthy snack alternative. You can put it on top of Greek yogurt or you can eat it for a snack. Either way - this will be gone in no time so be sure to whip up a large batch! 

    Course: Dessert, Snack
    Servings: 2 cups
    Ingredients
    • 4 tbsp creamy peanut butter
    • 4 tbsp honey
    • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats NOT quick oats
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
    2. In a large bowl, combine peanut butter and honey and pop in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds until the peanut butter and honey have all melted. Stir together and then add in the cinnamon and vanilla extract.
    3. Add in the oats and stir until all the oats are coated with the mixture.
    4. Spread in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. It may take more or less time for yours to turn a golden brown. Ovens vary. Mine took about 15 minutes. It will still look soft when you take it out. It's ok - it hardens up :)
    5. Store in mason jars or any airtight container. These would make cute gifts too!
    Recipe Notes

    I know I`ll love this stuff! And I have all of the ingredients to make this!

  • Exports says:

    I made this and it was a big hit. It’s almost gone already and I just made it an hour ago. It is very filling.

  • Pam C. says:

    I am so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I am stting here eating 2 Tbsp of peanut butter with some muesli mixed in it as a fast lunch, and saw this recipe. Right up my alley :-)

    • Julie says:

      Aw thank you Pam! This peanut butter granola is definitely up my alley too since I adore peanut butter! Hope you make it sometime :)

  • Lori says:

    Amazing goof proof granola. Take it from someone that can find a way to mess up just about anything in the kitchen. I made two batches. One with dried strawberries (think pb&j) and one with coconut and dark chocolate covered hemp seeds as a topping for ice cream. Options are endless…thinking dried banana would also rock in this. Love it!! Thx!

    • Julie says:

      Love your unique spin on this granola, Lori! Definitely endless possibilities for flavors. Thanks for sharing and I’m so glad you’re enjoying this!

  • Wendy says:

    I’ve never made granola before, and saw this on Pinterest. Looks simple enough for a first timer, but I was wondering how important the parchment paper is. I don’t have that or a baking mat. Would a nice layer of oil and/or flour do the trick?

    • Julie says:

      Hi Wendy! I would say parchment paper or a baking mat is fairly important so it doesn’t stick to the baking sheet. I would suggest lightly spraying your baking sheet with cooking spray in place of parchment paper :) enjoy!

  • Food, Faith, and Other Fabulous Finds says:

    This is probably the easiest granola recipe I’ve ever made. Plus I love peanut butter, so I love its flavor.

  • kathy pease says:

    I have a batch in the oven now! Thanks so much for the recipe I have been looking for a good one the last few days.

  • Tracy says:

    Just a quickie! Why not quick oats?

    • Julie says:

      They’re too small and won’t crisp up as well! You could certainly try it, though, if that’s all you have.

  • Kristina says:

    This stuff is fantastic!! I did leave out the cinnamon but did everything else the same. I’m so glad I doubled it! Yum! Thank you!

    • Julie says:

      Glad you enjoyed this, Kristina!

  • Kat says:

    I will be making this recipe tonight!! It looks very doable — plus I have all the ingredients in my pantry. Thank you !!!

    • Julie says:

      I hope you enjoyed it!

  • Lynne B says:

    I made this today. OMG it is the bomb. I used Amish made creamy peanut butter, added crunchy, used corn syrup for the honey and raisins. Its not too sweet and eating it by the handful is out of this world.

  • Steve G says:

    My wife and I love this recipe. FYI, pecans make a wonderful addition to this granola. :)

  • Ana says:

    I was just gonna make oatmeal cookies and was having second thoughts because, well, I would eat them, and I saw this. The doubled granola is already in the oven. Thank you for what seems to be a super easy delicious recipe.

  • Ana says:

    Just a thought, Nutella instead of peanut butter!!!!

  • Melissa says:

    Definitely a keeper. My third batch is in the oven right now. I made the first batch as written and it was a hit. I spread the second batch thicker and baked a little longer to make big clusters and had a piece torn from my hands by a picky eater! I subbed almond butter and pumpkin pie spice (about a tsp) for the peanut butter and cinnamon on the latest batch, plus added chopped almonds and sea salt (my almonds and almond butter are salt free). I’m now completely out of honey, so I’m going to have to go to the store soon.

  • Alice says:

    Thank you so much for this recipe! My mother loves peanutbutter, I made her a batch with Dutch peanutbutter as Christmas gift. Greetings from The Netherlands :)

  • Louise says:

    This is a fantastic recipe! I made it the first time and added pumpkin seeds and chopped, dried Iranian plums. Next time cranberries instead of plums. Both Delicious!

  • lora says:

    This recipe sounds realy yummi but can I use crunchy peanut butter as well?

    • Julie says:

      You could, but I haven’t tried it that way and not sure how it’ll all set up. You can certainly give it a shot, though!

  • cindy says:

    I’m so glad I saw this Friday. It’s been a long time since I made granola. I just doubled the recipe but I used the quick oats and agave in place of honey because it’s what I had in the cabinet. The husband just came in the kitchen because it smells so good in here!

  • emily says:

    made this using Nutella and almond extract instead of vanilla. it was absolutely delicious! I’ll be saving this recipe and making it again.

  • Sandy says:

    I don’t usually write comments but I felt I had to give credit to you for a great and simple recipe. This is the only granola I make and we love it! I make it almost every week. Thanks so much!!

    • Julie says:

      That’s great to hear! Thanks for letting me know :)

  • Nichole says:

    This is so good. The kids love it too ??

  • John says:

    I was looking to see if one could make granola sweetened only with honey and peanut butter. Thanks for this! So many other recipes seem to have unnecessary ingredients like refined sugar or oil. Thanks for putting this to the test.

  • Vikki carter says:

    Just had to come back and tell you how wonderful your Peanut Butter Granola recipe is. It’s become my favorite breakfast and it’s SO easy to make! My favorite kind of recipe! Thanks so much!

  • melanie says:

    Made this and love it. I have it with mixed berry compote, topped with pistachios or walnuts with pumpkin and sunflower seeds for breakfast. Thank you for a delicious recipe.

  • Essie Deye says:

    How long does this granola keep for- and how should I store it? And what texture is it once baked? Thanks!

    • Julie says:

      Granola keeps for a while. I would say at least 3 weeks. Store it in an airtight container or mason jars. The texture is crunchy.

  • Michaela Clark says:

    I’ve made this twice now, and it’s so yummy! It’s so easy to make, so I’ve been making it for breakfasts and quick snacks since my fiancé and I have busy schedules!

  • Kayla says:

    You should refrain from microwaving honey, it ruins the amazing qualities of the honey. Even with teas, if it’s too hot for you to drink, it’s too hot for your honey.

  • Madelyn says:

    I found this recipe a few years ago and have been making it ever since! It is so simple and delicious. I always make a double batch! Thank you for sharing! God bless, Madelyn :)
