In the spirit of self empowerment, self love and all things self celebratory, I’m going to be bold and tell you straight that this recipe is going to knock your socks off. I mean, it’s all in the name… Nutty Peanut Butter Granola Recipe. It sounds dreamy, and it tastes dreamy. It delivers! Let me give you some top advice in advance, be good to yourself and make a double batch. You WILL thank me later!
Don’t you just love spending time with people who share your passions? The ideas flow, the conversation is fiery, and the laughter is LOUD! I recently at an anniversary lunch, and ended up having an awesome time sat opposite my hardworking, smart, savvy friends who own a few restaurants in Bali (as you do). As expected the conversation was totally food centric and after discussing granola recipes and mutual worship of peanut butter the lightbulb moment happened. Honestly, I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to create this recipe. I’m even a bit disappointed in myself!
In my world breakfast time is sacred. I really feel that when you have a really delicious breakfast that is relaxing, nourishing and really enjoyable then the day gets off to a solid start. The day’s ‘foundation’ if you will, and who wouldn’t want a Peanut Butter Granola Recipe to kickstart their day?
Peanut Butter Granola Recipe
Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 30 minutes
- 3 Cups Organic Rolled Oats
- 1/2 Cup Sunflower Seeds
- 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Seeds
- 1 Cup Mixed Nuts
- 1 Cup Raisins
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 Tsp Cinnamon Powder
- 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
- 1/2 Cup Coconut oil
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Syrup
- 2 Tbs Chia Seeds
- 1 Pinch Sea Salt
Place all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir together.
Add together Vanilla Extract, Peanut Butter, Coconut Oil and Coconut Syrup into a small bowl and mix together until combined. Mmmm mmm!
Add the peanut butter sauce into the bowl of dry ingredients and mix together thoroughly until all the dry ingredients have been covered by the sauce.
Spread out on a baking tray and pop into the oven at 180c (350f) for 10 minutes. After the first 10 minutes is up, take out the tray and give the ingredients a stir. Put the tray back into the oven and removed after another 15 minutes. Leave to cool and then store in a large glass jar, or alternative airtight container.
For maximum yumminess…
If you like mixing things up a bit, you might like to swap the raisins for chopped dates or goji berries.
My favourite way to enjoy this granola is with fruit….
…or sprinkled on top of a tropical smoothie bowl (click here for some recipes). For those movie nights, it’s great sprinkled on top of freshly made nice-cream/ vegan ice-cream too!
