Peanut Butter Granola

image

T.W.O. has enjoyed starting our mornings off with fruit and yogurt- either Greek or Icelandic yogurt. But there has been one thing missing- granola! So we decided to make out own, healthy version of the nutrient-rich topping! And guess what they decided to flavor the oats with? Yes, that is right- Peanut Butter! It’s just one of the items always in our cabinet- and restocked very often! This dish is not only great to top your yogurt with, but also a great addition to smoothies, cereal, ice cream or just as it is! Plus, it is so easy to make!

 Ingredients

-4 cups rolled oats
-1/2 cup chia seeds
-3/4 cup peanut butter*
-1/4 cup coconut oil (melted/liquid)
-1/2 cups of agave syrup

*T.W.O. loves using Justin’s original peanut butter- so delish!

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a bowl, place peanut butter, agave syrup, melted coconut oil and heat up for 15 seconds in a microwave. Mix until the peanut butter mixture is smooth.

Place the oats into a large size bowl and stir in the peanut butter mixture. Combine together (using your hands might make it a little easier!). Make sure to leave some big clusters.

Spread out the granola on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Place into the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. (The granola might feel soft at this time, but it will harden up once you leave it out at room temperature) Make sure to mix up the granola while in the oven so it bakes evenly. You don’t want just the edges to be brown!

After the granola has reached room temperature and harden, you can enjoy it the way you want! Store the granola in an air-tight Ziploc bag or container.
