Healthy Vegan Peanut Butter Cup Granola with extra clusters! The easiest homemade granola lightly sweetened and with the best chunks. Made with ingredients like rolled oats, nuts, seeds, creamy peanut butter.
Granola is hands down one of my favorite recipes to make. By far one of my least favorites to photograph but I love eating it, making it and of course .. sharing it with my mom.
My mom is obsessed with my homemade granolas. Every time she is home from Florida she asks me to make her some. It all started with my Healthy Dark Chocolate Granola with Clusters (vegan + gluten-free) and my Grain-free Chocolate Chip Granola Clusters Recipe. It is also one of the most popular recipes on the blog. Probably because granola is the best food group ever.
Yes… granola is a food group to me. I eat it every single day. Usually with yogurt and lots of cinnamon and nut butter with fruit. Or I just snack on it during the day every time I pass the jar sitting on my counter. It is so insanely addicting!
I also love keeping granola in the fridge for an extra crunch. it stays good for a couple weeks in the fridge too or a week on the counter!
This peanut butter cup granola has the most insane clusters and it is vegan, gluten-free and made with all healthy ingredients.
What you need to make this:
- Rolled oats or quick oats – either work! But steel cut would be too small
- Unsweetened coconut shreds
- Chopped nuts – pecans, cashews, almonds, anything!
- Ground flaxseeds
- Chia seeds
- Maple syrup or honey
- Creamy peanut butter – or any nut butter (but of course that’ll change the flavor of the recipe!)
- Dark chocolate chips or chunks – code RACHL for free shipping
- If You Care Baking Sheets – these make for the easiest clean up ever! And they help the granola not stick to the pan.
