This chocolate peanut butter granola is SO EASY to make and SO YUMMY! I shoveled it in my mouth uncooked. I ate it warm out of the oven. And I keep grabbing bits every time I walk through the kitchen.
Turns out homemade granola is ridiculously easy to make in addition to being delicious.
Why chocolate peanut butter granola?
This goodness came together today because of a perfect storm of factors and needs.
- PB Fit sent me a huge jar of their new chocolate peanut butter powder a couple of months ago. It’s savory sweet perfection in smoothies, but I’ve been wanting to try it in something else.
- Oats are BOGO at Publix this week.
- I’ve been trying to eat more protein.
- (TMI warning) I’ve been fighting constipation and inflammation lately.
Chocolate PB Granola Ingredients
I totally made this recipe up as I went. And I’m thrilled with how it came out!
Here’s what I used:
- 2 cups oats
- 1 cup PB Fit chocolate peanut butter powder
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons flax seeds
- Dash of salt
A failed start…
Confession: No-bake cookies were the plan. However, the mixture wasn’t wet enough to stick together. It was delicious uncooked, but very crumbly. So I switched my plan and made granola. Apparently “happy accidents” aren’t just for painting trees.
How to make chocolate peanut butter granola
It’s so easy!
- Mix all the ingredients together.
- Spread on a baking sheet.
- Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through.
- Let cool completely before storing.
Change this up however you want! Some ideas:
- Maple syrup instead of honey
- Skip the sweetener and go savory instead
- Plain peanut butter powder instead of chocolate
- Or no peanut butter at all!
- Add nuts, raisins, dried fruit, etc.
- Use coconut oil instead of olive oil
How to use homemade granola
