You're just five ingredients away from homemade Peanut Butter Granola, a quick and easy recipe that makes a wholesome, yummy breakfast, snack, or even as dessert...all dressed up with a handful of chocolate chips!
Prep Time 10minutes
Cook Time 25minutes
Total Time 35minutes
Servings 16(1/2-cup) servings (the entire recipe yield is about 8 cups)
Position rack in center of oven and preheat oven to 350°F.
In a small saucepan set over medium heat, melt together honey, peanut butter, and coconut oil/butter, stirring until smooth and blended. Combine oats and peanuts in a large bowl. Drizzle peanut butter mixture over the top and stir well until all oats are evenly coated.
Transfer granola onto a 13"x18"x1" sheet pan and spread into an even layer. Bake, stirring and flipping with a wooden spoon every 10 minutes, until the mixture turns a nice, even, golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes total.
Remove granola from the oven and stir a few times as it cools. If using chocolate chips, stir them into the granola once it's completely cool. Store in an airtight container.
If your peanut butter is fairly sweet and/or you use chocolate chips, you may want to consider using the lesser amount of honey. If your peanut butter is unsweetened or low-sugar and/or you leave out the chocolate chips, you might want to use the greater amount of honey.
The granola will probably need to bake for a total of about 30 minutes, but ovens vary so watch the granola carefully, particularly the first time you make it. If you cut the recipe in half, it will require less time, and if you double it and cook two sheet pans at once (switching racks and rotating pans each time you stir), it will take longer.
