Chocolate Peanut butter lover's Granola.

I love nuts. 

I have this crazy obsession over them. I don't know why. I just do.

I can have it anytime. Peanuts, almonds, whatever.

This is a easy recipe. You can enjoy it as a very healthy snack because it uses honey to sweeten it.

And it's a combination of peanut butterrrr and chocolate. 
(It's so delicious and crunchy)

I want to grab some and munch right now.


Amazing? Yes I know. 

Keep the whole box for yourself and don't let anyone touch it.

Got this recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction 

Her blog is fantastic. 


Chocolate Peanut Butter Lover's Granola


Ingredients:

3 cups (240grams) old-fashioned rolled oats
3/4 cup (106grams) peanut (or any nut)
3 tbsp (25grams) unsweetend cocoa powder
1/2 cup (125grams) creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1/3 cup (113grams) Honey*
1/4 cup (60ml) coconut oil*
1 tsp vanilla extract

Optional: 

1/2 cup (90grams) chocolate chips
melted peanut butter

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 160C. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Mix oats, nuts and cocoa powder together in a large bowl.
Melt peanut butter, honey and coconut oil together in a medium bowl and stir until smooth.
Mix in the vanilla extract.
Pour over oats and mix untill all oats are moistened.

Bake for 30 minutes, stirring and flipping every 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and if adding chocolate chips, sprinkle the granola with them while it's still warm. Stir.
The chocolate chips will melt, creating larger cluster of granola.
Allow to cool at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. 
The air will help granola get crunchy. Store covered at room temperature for up to three weeks.
Serve with a drizzle of melted peanut butter if desired.

*For a vegan version, make sure you use maple syrup or agave instead of honey as well as dairy-free chocolate chips.
*For a gluten free version, make sure you use certified gluten free oats.
*Instead of coconut oil, feel free to use canola or vegetable oil
