Granola is probably one of my favorite things to make in the kitchen. It’s so easy, cheap, healthy, and makes your house smell amazing! What more could you ask for?

I won’t go as far as saying this peanut butter chocolate granola tastes like a Reeses, but I will say it’s close to a healthy-ish version of Reese’s Puffs. Naturally vegan and gluten-free, you can’t go wrong with this granola!

Ingredients in homemade granola:

Granola is super forgiving meaning you can adjust the ingredients to your liking or swap things out and the recipe will still yield amazing results.

This recipe includes:

  • Rolled oats
  • Coconut oil
  • Maple syrup
  • Peanut butter
  • Cocoa powder
  • Chocolate chips
  • Peanuts

I even bought most of these ingredients in bulk, meaning you pay by the pound and this can reduce the costs even further. Grocery stores like Whole Foods have a big bulk section.

instructions on how to make homemade granola

How to make peanut butter chocolate granola:

  1. Add all ingredients (except chocolate chips) to a mixing bowl
  2. Spread evenly onto a baking sheet
  3. Bake on 275 for 20 minutes, rotating the pan about 15 minutes in.
  4. Once cooled, stir in chocolate chips

Tips for granola making:

  1. Do not mix when baking. When you turn the granola when baking, you break up the chunks that we all love. Just let it bake and do it’s thing.
  2. Bake low and slow. The oven temperature should be low and the cook time is longer. This allows the granola to bake to crunchy perfection.
  3. Let cool completely. When done baking, let the granola cool completely before transferring or handling. If the granola is still warm, you will break up those precious chunks!

  • In a bowl with almond milk, or another plant-based milk topped with banana slices
