This Homemade Peanut Butter Granola makes a delicious breakfast treat or crunchy + healthy afternoon snack. It is perfect served on top of fruit + yogurt or just enjoy the clusters straight up.
This recipes is clean eating & vegan (use coconut yogurt for parfaits) & gluten free (if you use certified gluten free oats).
Since the time that I made my first batch of homemade granola a few years ago, I absolutely refuse to get the store-bought kind anymore. Those are usually ridiculously expensive, laden with hidden sugar, and I’ve even had the unfortunate experience of stale, no longer crunchy granola from the store.
All these are non-issues with homemade granola! It’s crazy economical to make granola at home, you have complete control over all the ingredients – including sugar (I prefer honey or maple syrup).
And since granola never lasts long around our house, I can be absolutely certain that it is always fresh. To make sure, we have a steady supply of fresh granola on hand during the week, I’ve developed a Sunday-granola-making-routine.
So I’ve made countless batches of granola. I love to switch up the flavors and ingredients often, but this healthy peanut butter granola with cinnamon raisin flavor combination is one of my beloved go-to’s.
