Peanut butter granola

19 August 2012

I love granola. I love using it in breakfast parfaits. I usually add layers of yoghurt, fruit, granola and maybe a little bit of jam. However, I find granola at supermarkets here to be pricy, lacking in variety, and most are high in oil. I also prefer dry granola without added fruits – just some flavoured, crispy oats. I especially love snacking on granola clusters.

Lately I have been loving everything peanut butter. My latest favourite chocolates are Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, which are a little tricky to find here, but of course the lovely grocery store near my work stocks them (both a great and terrible thing).

I felt it was time to put my love for peanut butter and granola into a majestic, crunchy, nutty amalgamation. So far I have mixed these lovelies alongside some strawberry jam into some vanilla yoghurt, and have also eaten them as is. Very yummy, very quick and very easy.

Peanut butter granola
Serves 4
  1. 1 cup rolled oats
  2. 2 tbsp peanut butter
  3. 2 tbsp honey
  4. ¼ tsp vanilla essence
  5. ¼ tsp cinnamon
  6. canola spray
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C/325°F (fan-forced 140°C/285°F). Spray baking tray with canola spray.
  2. Combine peanut butter and honey in a bowl and microwave for 20 seconds. Stir.
  3. Add cinnamon and vanilla to peanut butter mixture and combine.
  4. Mix oats into peanut butter mixture until oats are completely covered.
  5. Spread oats evenly onto baking tray. If you want granola clusters, you can leave the bigger clumps of oats as is. If not, separate the clusters with two spoons.
  6. Bake for 8 minutes. Leave to cool completely and store in a sealed container.
