Homemade peanut butter granola

I used to be a real granola fan. But as it’s pretty much impossible to buy loose granola, I gave up my brekkie favourite. Unfortunately I couldn’t stop craving it. That’s probably not suprising – store-bought granola does not only come in plastic packaging, it’s also full of sugar, That explains why I was so hooked on it.

The good news is: There is a much better alternative you can make in less than 5 minutes – homemade granola. That’s granola minus the excess sugar and packaging. Plus you save heaps of money.

Here’s my favourite peanut butter granola recipe – for all those who wanna ditch store-bought granola and eat better!

You need:

160 g of oats

2 TS of flax seed

1 TS of chia seed (optional, can be substituted by another TS of flax seed)

a pinch of vanilla

a pinch of cinnamon

a pinch of salt

50 g of peanut butter

40 g of agave juice or other sweetener

30 g of margarine

Mix the dry ingrendients in a bowl. Heat up the wet ingredients in the microwave or a pot and mix them well. Add them to the dry ingredients and mix again. Then bake everything in the oven for about 15-20 min at 160°C. Let the granola cool down and store it in an air tight container.

And now: Enjoy!

P.S. You can of course use any other nut butter in this recipe, too – for example cashew, hazelnut or almond butter.
