In an attempt to clear our pantry and also in an attempt to eat healthier, a nurse of mine at work led me to this recipe. I tweaked the ingredients a little to clear more things from my pantry (and perhaps slightly less healthy) but boy is this granola yum! 🙂
Recipe adapted from: https://www.erinliveswhole.com/healthy-peanut-butter-granola/
Serving size: 8 cups (I doubled this from the original recipe)
Calories: roughly 243 cal per 1/2 cup
- 1 cup (280g) natural peanut butter (unsalted) – if using salted PB, then omit the salt
- 2/3 cup (220g) honey (if using sweetened peanut butter, half the honey to 1/3 cup (110g))
- 1/2 cup (100g) melted coconut oil
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 6 cups (620g) oats (old fashioned oats/rolled oats)
- 1/3 cup (26g) cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp salt – skip the salt if using salted peanut butter
- 4 Tbsps (47g) chia seeds
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 325F (163C). Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a bowl, mix together the wet ingredients: peanut butter, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: oats, cocoa powder, salt, chia seeds, and cinnamon.
- Combine the dry ingredients to the wet. Mix well until fully combined, then press onto the parchment paper into a flat layer.
- Bake until golden brown (about 15-20mins).
- Let COMPLETELY cool before breaking apart. Enjoy! Store in airtight container on the counter.
