Homemade Peanut Butter Granola

peanut butter granola recipe

One of my favorite ways to mix up yogurt is to add granola. In the past, I was quick to purchase store bought granola because homemade granola seemed too daunting. But after sharing THIS granola recipe with you last year, I decided to switch up the ingredients for a different twist on this yogurt topping.

After realizing how simple it was to make homemade granola {and how much healthier it is than the store-bought version} I decided to experiment with different flavors. I’m sure I have mentioned my love for peanut butter at least once or twice — I’m truly addicted! I thought why not take this obsession to a completely different level and make peanut butter granola! I typically eat vanilla yogurt so the peanut butter worked well with it. I haven’t tried it with a fruit flavored yogurt so I can’t say how that would taste. And although this is probably not as healthy as the original homemade granola I made, it compliments my morning routine {that is, before I went on the no carbs, no sweet diet yesterday!} perfectly. Just a heads up: the peanut butter flavor is pretty intense — it’s definitely a recipe for the peanut butter lover! Check out the simple recipe below. It’s freezer friendly so you can store it there until you are ready to eat it!

Peanut Butter Granola
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 4 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 ½ cup peanuts, chopped
  • 1 cup almonds, sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium-sized saucepan, mix the peanut butter and honey together over low heat until smooth and combined. Add the old fashioned oats, peanuts and almonds to a large bowl. Pour the peanut butter and honey mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well. Spread the mixture out onto a baking sheet that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 15 minutes, stir the granola and then bake for an additional 10 minutes. Allow the granola to cool before storing. Top your favorite yogurt with peanut butter granola. Granola can be stored in a plastic freezer bag for up to 1 month.

Thanks for stopping by, friends! Have a great Tuesday!
