About this Granola
Granola comes in so many shapes, sizes, and flavors, the possibilities are endless. And there's most likely a flavor for whatever you're craving! You can find it made with nuts and seeds, dried fruit, chocolate, honey...the list goes on and on. No matter the flavor, it's always tasty, crunchy, and perfect little snack.
I also love homemade granola because it's incredibly easy to make from scratch and you can choose to include what YOU want! This Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola is made up of warm, toasted oats, creamy peanut butter, sweet maple syrup, and melted chocolate. It's all baked together in one of the most dreamy recipes I've ever created!
Use this granola recipe to throw together a quick snack or as a meal prep staple for the week. Enjoy it with milk and fresh fruit for a great breakfast. Eat it on a plane or on a long care ride as a delicious snack. You could even use it on top of ice cream or another dessert! You really can’t go wrong. All you have to do is enjoy!

- Rolled Oats: I recommend using rolled oats for this granola recipe. They're softer than steel-cut oats and easier to bake with, but also not as soft as quick oats which will become mushy.
- Maple Syrup: Sweet and sticky, this will also help our ingredients stick together and create clusters.
- Peanut Butter: I love adding peanut butter to smoothie and yogurt bowls, so why not bake it right into my yogurt/smoothie bowl topping!
- Cocoa Powder: We'll add this with the butter, peanut butter, and maple syrup mixture to get that rich chocolate flavor throughout.
- Chocolate: I used Nib Mor chocolate bites, but regular chocolate chips will work just fine.

How to Make This Recipe
1. Preheat oven to 325°F. In a saucepan, melt butter, peanut butter, and maple syrup over medium heat. Whisk together until combined into a sauce-like mixture. Then, whisk in cocoa powder and stir until dissolved.
2. In a mixing bowl, fold together rolled oats, brown sugar, and salt. Then pour the peanut butter over the oats.
3. Stir so all of the oats are evenly coated then line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Press on granola mixture evenly using a rubber spatula. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
4. While granola is baking, chop up chocolate. Remove granola from the oven. Top with the chopped chocolate. Place the pan back in the oven for an additional 2-4 minutes or until chocolate is melted. Then, use the rubber spatula to spread the melted chocolate. Let granola cool for about an hour before breaking apart into pieces and enjoy!
Store in an airtight Tupperware for up to 1 week. Be sure to let your granola cool COMPLETELY before storing to avoid steam getting trapped in your container which'll result in soggy granola.
Enjoy this granola with milk, fresh fruit and yogurt, as an ice cream topping, or just by the spoon. It's also delicious on top of smoothies, pancakes or waffles, or even on top of banana bread. There are so many options!
Granola is so so customizable and you can add so almost any of your favorite mix-ins. To name a few, try adding nuts or seeds (walnuts, peanuts, cashews, pecans, chia seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, etc.), dried fruit like cranberries, raisins, or dried mango, pretzels, some of your favorite cereal, white chocolate chips or coconut flakes.

I thought Courtney's cranberry nut granola was top notch, but this peanut butter chocolate is heavenly and HIGHLY addictive. Seriously have to make a triple batch just to make it last more than a day. It's that good!!!
5 stars for sure!!!!!
