Peanut Butter and Chocolate Granola

Hi!

Peanut Butter and Chocolate GranolaI try to look on the positive side of things whenever possible. So when my favorite chocolate chunk granola from Erin Baker’s wasn’t to be found not once, but twice, at my local grocery store {clearly a first world problem and thankfully, it has since been resolved :)}, I decided that it was the perfect opportunity to make a homemade batch! Fortunately, just minutes of research brought me countless varieties to try, but given my love for chocolate and peanut butter, The Minimalist Baker’s six ingredient recipe seemed like the best match. Delicious, clumpy, and just as good as the store-bought version, I will be making this again! I like it best with vanilla yogurt, but I promise I won’t judge if you eat it straight from the pan; granola is really just dessert in disguise.

ingredients

  • 3 cups and 2 tablespoons rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

to make

  1. Preheat oven to 340ºF.
  2. Stir together oats and sugar in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Warm peanut butter, oil, and maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat until golden and pourable, about one minute.
  4. Pour peanut butter mixture over oats, and mix.
  5. Spread granola evenly on a rimmed baking sheet or pan. Bake for twenty minutes, tossing the oats around the fifteen minute mark; the granola should be golden brown.
  6. Remove granola from the oven and add in the chocolate chips. Using a rubber spatula, combine the chocolate with the granola so that large clumps form. Alternatively, omit the chocolate or add it in once the granola has cooled completely.
  7. Enjoy!

Have an awesome Wednesday!
