Peanut butter is a great breakfast option because it has 8 grams of protein, plus over 30 essential nutrients and phytonutrients.

Heck, go for a smoothie or yogurt bowl with banana, and berries, and this granola on top and drizzle even more peanut butter on top too 😉
How to make Peanut Butter Granola?
- Combine the peanut butter, maple syrup, and coconut oil, in a microwave safe bowl.
- Microwave for about 30 seconds, then stir it smooth. Stir in the vanilla extra and salt.
- Add the oats and chopped peanuts to a large bowl.
- Pour the peanut butter mixture over the top and stir it all together to coat the mixture evenly.
- Spread the mixture onto a cookie sheet. Bake the granola for about 30 minutes, stirring half way through. Let the granola cool completely, then break into pieces and enjoy.
Tips for making Peanut Butter Granola:
- You can substitute agave instead of the pure maple syrup.
- You can use coconut oil, canola oil, or vegetable oil.
- I recommend using old fashioned oats. Don’t use quick oats, instant oats, 1 minute, or 3 minute oats as they will be too soft in the granola.
- Peanuts can be swapped for a different nut, or you can leave them out completely.
- You can store the granola in an aitright container, or ziptop bag for up to 3 weeks.
- You can also freeze the peanut butter granola for up to 3 months in a freezer safe ziptop bag. Let it thaw at room temperature over night before enjoying.
This peanut butter granola is so crunchy, peanut buttery and delicious. It’s perfect for breakfast or a snack. And is almost addictive!
