I have ALWAYS loved granola. I’d take it over any sort of cereal any day.
I have also always LOVED oats. There is definitely a pattern here ;).
This nutty granola is the perfect combo of sweet and salty, and pairs amazingly with my favourite, whole goat’s milk yogurt, topped on a bowl of oatmeal, or mixed into a hearty smoothie.
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup frozen cherries, chopped
2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
2 Tbsp sunflower seeds
2 Tbsp hemp seeds
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- In small bowl, combine peanut butter, oats, cherries, all seeds, coconut, cinnamon and salt. Mix well with wooden spoon. Add honey, coconut oil, and vanilla and stir to combine.
- Press onto baking sheet covered with parchment paper at 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes, stirring once halfway through. Cool completely before breaking into granola “clusters.”
- Enjoy with yogurt, in a parfait, on ice cream, whatever you wish!
