Easy Peanut Butter Granola
The easiest peanut butter granola with no oil and no refined sugar! Just 5 ingredients, 10 minutes of prep, and 30 minutes to make. A healthy vegan breakfast, snack, or dessert!
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1/3 cup peanut butter (I use natural, smooth)
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (I use Ceylon)
- Pinch of salt, if desired
Optional add-ins after baking:
- Vegan chocolate chips, dried fruit, coconut, etc.
Preheat oven to 325°F (162°C).
In a medium saucepan over med-low heat, add peanut butter and maple syrup.
Heat for about 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When melted, remove from heat. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Stir.
Add oats and stir well to thoroughly combine. Add a pinch of salt if desired.
Place parchment paper (or Silpat) on a baking sheet. Add oat mixture and slightly spread out. (It doesn’t have to be totally spread out – keeping some together will create clusters!)
Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. Remove and let cool.
Made gluten-free with GF oats.
Granola will be soft when it comes out of the oven, but it gradually hardens as it cools. After it completely cools (about 25-30 minutes), I store it in a sealed glass jar in the fridge.
Ours usually disappears within a week, so any storage past that I’m not sure!
Adjust the sweetness as desired (more/less maple syrup). I find about 1/4 cup is the sweetness I like, plus it helps create the crunchy clusters!
