Almond Butter Granola-easy homemade granola made with almond butter. Enjoy for breakfast or as a healthy snack!
I love making homemade granola. It’s so simple and always tastes much better than store bought granola. This easy Almond Butter Granola is my new favorite recipe. I made it because I wanted a healthy snack, but I ended up eating most of the pan by myself, so I guess there went the healthy part. Oops! I made it again and put it away in glass jars so I wouldn’t eat it all in one sitting and so I would have some in our pantry for breakfast and snacking. It is great to have on hand.
The secret ingredient is almond butter, well I guess it really isn’t a secret because I already told you it was Almond Butter Granola, but the almond butter is the key to this granola. It gives it the BEST flavor and makes the granola crisp and clumpy. I like to use Justin’s Maple Almond Butter, but any almond butter will work. You can use your favorite.
I mix almond butter with pure maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. I pour the mixture over oats, almonds, flaxseed, cinnamon, and sea salt. Bake until the granola gets nice and toasty and then let it cool on the pan. If you want the granola to be clumpy, DON’T stir the granola on the pan while it is cooling. It will set up and clump up as it cools.
You can eat the Almond Butter Granola with yogurt, milk, or you can eat it right from the pan. I had handful after handful. You can store it in glass jars or an airtight container for up to one month. I don’t think our granola will ever last that long because it is SO good, I can never stop eating it. Good thing it is super easy to make, I don’t mind making it over and over! Enjoy!
