Granola Recipe with my Two Faves
Peanut butter and chocolate, the two are a match made in heaven. I love them individually, but together, man oh man, talk about divine! Chocolate peanut butter brownies and no-bake chocolate peanut butter bars are two of my favorite desserts.
I am a sucker for anything with peanut butter and chocolate for dessert, but what about peanut butter and chocolate for BREAKFAST? Now we are talking. This Peanut Butter Granola Recipe with mini chocolate chips is my current obsession. This easy homemade granola is healthy enough to eat for breakfast but tastes like dessert. Yep, pretty much the best granola recipe ever!
Homemade granola is so easy to make at home and SO much better than store-bought. If you are worried about homemade granola being difficult to make, think again. This easy and relatively healthy granola recipe only has FOUR ingredients. It doesn’t get any easier than that and I bet you have all of the ingredients in your pantry right now. You mix everything in a bowl and bake until the granola is golden and slightly crispy! Your house will smell amazing too!
How to Make Granola
I love this granola recipe because you only need 4 ingredients:
- old fashioned oats
- peanut butter
- mini chocolate chips
SO simple! If you don’t want chocolate chips in your granola, you can leave them out. I’ve made both versions, with and without chocolate, and both are fantastic! Plain peanut butter granola is good too! Then, you only need three ingredients.
Tips for How to Make Granola
- Make sure you use old fashioned oats and not quick oats.
- Use creamy peanut butter. If you use salted peanut butter, you don’t need to add salt to the granola recipe. If you use unsalted peanut butter, add a little salt to the recipe.
- This granola recipe is sweetened with honey and it makes the granola SO good. Peanut butter and honey are another winning combo.
- I use mini chocolate chips for this granola recipe because I like a little chocolate with my peanut butter granola. A little chocolate goes a long way here.
- If you need the granola to be gluten free, use gluten free oats. If you need the granola to be vegan, you can use maple syrup instead of honey and vegan chocolate chips. I like these vegan chocolate chips.
- Bake the granola at a low temperature so you don’t burn the granola.
- Let the granola cool completely on the baking sheet and don’t stir it if you want the granola to clump up.
- Don’t add the chocolate chips to the granola until it is completely cooled. You don’t want the chocolate chips to melt into the granola.
- Feel free to mix it up. You can add nuts or coconut to the granola!
We like to eat the granola with Greek yogurt or a splash of cold milk. It is also great eaten by the handful. Just beware, once you start, it is hard to stop! The granola will keep in an airtight container or jar for up to one month, ours never lasts that long:)
