Granola is one of the easiest things to throw together and is great for an on-the-go breakfast or snack. This wintery and oh so crunchy peanut butter chocolate granola is definitely a favorite. Somehow pairing crunchy oats and nuts with the most decadent peanut butter chocolate just works. Who knew, right?!
A few tablespoons of honey or maple syrup is all you need to sweeten things up a bit so you won’t feel guilty. Plus this dreamy granola has a high nutrient value and is very rich in minerals including iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and copper, and in vitamins E and B. 2/3 cup of granola equals one serving size and has approximately 300 calories.
Crunchy Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Recipe
Prep Time: 10 min | Cook Time: 40 min | Serves: 6
+ 1/4 cup unsalted cashews
+ 1/4 cup unsalted almonds
+ 1/4 cup unsalted hazelnuts
+ 1/4 cup unsalted walnuts
+ 1/2 cup dried cranberries
+ 3 tbsp cacao nibs
+ 3 tbsp raw honey or pure maple syrup
+ 1 tbsp peanut butter
+ 1 tbsp coconut oil
+ 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
+ 1/2 tsp cinnamon
+ pinch of sea salt
Preheat the oven to 300ºF / 150ºC. Chop the nuts and place them in a large bowl. Mix in the rolled oats, cacao nibs, and dried cranberries. In a small saucepan, melt the peanut butter with the honey and coconut oil over low heat. Once combined, add the cacao powder, cinnamon and a pinch of sea salt. Whisk together and then drizzle the creamy peanut butter chocolate on top of the oats blend. Mix well until evenly coated and spread the granola onto a baking sheet in an even layer. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Once the granola has finished baking, remove from the oven and allow it to cool completely. Store in an airtight container, for up to 4 weeks. Enjoy!
