Hi guys! I haven’t done a breakfast recipe in a while, and so I’d thought I’d share this Apple and Peanut Butter Granola. One of the first food posts on my blog is a homemade granola, and it’s pretty good, but when it comes to this recipe, I have one word for you; CLUSTERS! The mixture of mashed banana, peanut butter and vanilla creates more of a sticky “batter” when mixed with oats, and allows for big, delicious clusters to form. I also added in some apples and sunflower seeds, which give sweetness and earthiness. This granola would be great on top of smoothie bowls, yogurt, or simply with some almond milk.
Apple and Peanut Butter Granola
Total Time: 40 minutes
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups oats
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds (or chopped nuts of your choice)
- 1 apple, diced
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
- In a large bowl, mash the bananas and mix them with the peanut butter and vanilla.
- Add in the oats, sunflower seeds, and diced apple.
- Mix until the dry ingredients are coated in the peanut butter and banana mixture.
- Spread out the granola on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Bake for about 15 minutes, then take out of the oven and stir around the granola, staring to separate the clusters.
- Place back into the oven until the granola is golden brown.
Hope you like this easy breakfast recipe! It should keep in the fridge for about a week and a half, so it’s great for meal prepping;) I’ll see you next week with more great summer posts!
