Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter creamy or crunchy
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or sub with your favorite
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon optional
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Place the peanut butter and coconut oil in a large microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds or until melted.  Add the maple syrup, cinnamon and salt, and stir well to combine.
    1/2 cup natural peanut butter, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 1/3 cup pure maple syrup, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Add the oats and stir until well coated with the peanut butter mixture.
    3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • Pour the oat mixture onto the prepared pan and spread in an even layer, about 1/4" thick, packing it down well.  Packing it down will help give us those big clusters!
  • Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 25 minutes or until golden....do not stir!  Remove from heat and cool completely without stirring.
  • Once cooled, break the granola up into chunks and place in an air tight container at room temperature. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Using all natural peanut butter with no hydrogenated oil is recommended to keep this low in saturated fat, sodium, sugar and preservatives.
  • Add some fun add-ins like chocolate chip, dried or fresh fruit, coconut flakes or roasted peanuts to change up this recipe!
