easy healthy crunchy peanut butter granola recipe

Jump to Recipe

This easy healthy crunchy peanut butter granola recipe is a super simple, delicious high protein breakfast recipe.

Why buy granola when you can prepare it easily at home? This peanut butter granola recipe is super healthy with nutrient-dense ingredients, sweet and crunchy, and the perfect granola to combine with yogurt and fruits.
It’s by far the most popular granola recipe in our household. My kids want to eat it every day at any time. But I`m only offering it for breakfast or as a snack sometimes. What I love about homemade granola is that you can prepare it once and eat it literally for weeks. The perfect recipe to stock up your pantry.

ingredients for the healthy peanut butter granola recipe

  • Oats.

    You will need old-fashioned organic oatmeal for this recipe. The grain is super healthy; it is high in protein, contains antioxidants (avenathramides, ferulic acid, and phytic acid), soluble fiber, and some vitamins and minerals such as manganese, phosphorus, copper, vitamin B1, iron, selenium, Magnesium, and zinc. Oats have some health benefits - they can lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • Peanut paste.

    Please use peanut paste and not peanut butter with added fat and sugar. If you can’t access peanut paste, you can make it easily yourself. It will take a few more minutes, but it`s worth it. Peanut paste is a good protein source and a healthy fat source. It provides Vitamins E, B3, and B6, folate, Magnesium, copper, and manganese.
  • Maple syrup.

    High-quality maple syrup. Maple syrup will sweeten the granola. Make sure to read the label, so you get 100% maple syrup and not maple-flavored syrup.
  • Coconut oil.

    High-quality native coconut oil.
  • Peanuts.

    Unsalted and unroasted peanuts.

how to store the peanut butter granola

The granola can be stored in a glass jar or any container in your pantry. It will last for weeks. The longest I had peanut butter granola stored in a jar was for about four weeks. We have been on vacation, and after four weeks, it still tasted amazing.

how to eat the peanut butter granola

The peanut butter granola can be eaten like any other granola. It tastes perfect with natural yogurt (no added sugar) and banana; it’s simply the perfect combo. But you could also eat it with milk; this tastes delicious as well.
