Crunchy clusters of peanut butter granola goodness. Make a batch at the beginning of the week to jazz up anything your heart desires! Made from ingredients you might already have in your cupboards, ready in half an hour and super nutritious this peanut butter granola will beat anything you can buy. Vegan, GF, healthy & refined sugar free.
Preheat the oven to 160ºc fan/180ºc/350ºf.
In a large saucepan over a low heat melt together the peanut butter, coconut oil, honey / maple syrup and vanilla extract, stirring until combined.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the oats, cinnamon, salt and ground almonds. Mix throughly until everything is evenly coated.
Pour the oat mixture onto a lined baking tray and gently spread it out into one even layer, being careful not to break up the clusters that have formed. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown, stirring the granola once half way through cooking.
Remove from the oven and allow the granola to harden and cool completely before serving.
This peanut butter granola is perfect to make in advance and will keep for up to 2 weeks. Once cool store in an airtight container to avoid any softening.
I use ground almonds in this recipe as a sort of binder to create extra crunchy clusters! You can leave it out for a more delicate granola. Just substitute for an extra 30g of oats.
You can make this peanut butter granola your own by adding in anything you like. Why not try adding a handful of nuts or seeds into the mixture before baking or stirring in a few chocolate chips, banana chips or raisins once the granola has come out of the oven.
