There’s a reason I named my Instagram @CerealAndPeanutButter , and if you haven’t already guessed it, let me spell it out for you: there’s nothing I love more than spooning peanut butter straight out the jar or tucking into a bowl of crunchy granola. So I don’t know why it took me so many years to consider fusing the two foods together, but now I’ve been making this Peanut Butter Granola every couple of weeks for over a year – and looking back, I wonder how I survived so long without these sweet nutty clusters in my life!
This recipe makes such a lovely personalised gift idea – I love putting it in little paper bags or jars tied with a ribbon for friends and family, and it always goes down a success. In fact, it’s been so popular among family and friends that I’ve started selling it! So if you’re based in London and you’d rather order it directly from me than make it yourself at home, just drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I actually do the same with all my granolas, having seen the smile in brings people to receive a jar of this – Chocolate Chip Quinoa Granola, Pecan Pie Granola, Almond Butter & Coconut Granola, Nutty Cinnamon Granola and my Banana Nut Crunch Granola!
The sea salt in this recipe really brings out the flavour of these delicious baked oats. It taste incredible when sprinkled over a smoothie or on top of an Açaí Bowl. Add it to your Chocolate Mousse for another level of texture, chuck it over your Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake, or just have it with fresh berries and a splash of almond milk!
