Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola
Granola is my favorite grab and go breakfast for busy mornings. It’s super easy to make at home and is so much better than store bought. This granola recipe is ridiculously simple to make. All you need is 4 ingredients and less than 5 minutes of prep time!
Peanut Butter and chocolate chips make the perfect combination for this granola. I used creamy peanut butter and honey to help bind everything together. They also help to form those big awesome clusters we all love.
This granola is super addicting! I like to serve my granola on top of Greek yogurt or with soy milk. It’s a great grab and go snack.
This recipe makes about 2 cups total. I like to make big batches of it to have on hand for busy mornings. This granola can be stored for about a week in an airtight container in your pantry. You can even freeze it and take it out as needed. Skip the store bought stuff and give this homemade granola a try!
- Creamy peanut butter: You can also use your favorite nut butter!
- Honey: Adds the perfect amount of sweetness to the granola. If you don’t have any honey on hand substitute maple syrup instead!
- Old fashioned oats: Or rolled oats would work great. I would not recommend using steel cut oats or instant oats.
- Semi sweet chocolate chips: Are added after the granola is baked and then cooled. You can also substitute dark chocolate chunks as well!
- Optional Add In’s: Unsweetened shredded coconut, chopped walnuts, pecans, peanut butter chips, raisins, chia seeds or hemp seeds. You can also add a pinch of salt or cinnamon to the granola! That’s the best part about making your own granola at home. Its so easy to customize!
How to make Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Add peanut butter and honey to a medium bowl. Place in the microwave for 15-30 seconds to slightly melt the honey and peanut butter. Toss in the old fashioned oats and stir until coated. Place on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat. Bake for 15 minutes and allow the granola to cool. The granola with get crunchier as it cools it tends to be sort of soft when it first comes out of the oven. Toss cooled granola with chocolate chips and enjoy. Serve over yogurt with fresh fruit and enjoy!
- For easier clean up line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet.
- Don’t over bake your granola. I take it out when it is golden brown. Don’t worry if it still looks wet or soft it will continue to crisp up as it cools.
- Allow your granola to cool completely before breaking into clumps. This helps the granola clusters stay together.
- For large granola clusters spread out the granola in an even layer but make sure the granola is still touching and not overlapping. This helps make the big granola clusters!
How long does homemade granola last?
Homemade granola lasts for 1 week at room temperature. It can also be frozen in a ziplock bag for up to 3 months! When you are ready to defrost bring it to room temperature and enjoy!
