Peanut Butter Granola

Who knew granola was so easy to make?  Just mix some oats and nuts with oil, peanut butter and maple syrup, bake, and you have the best granola you’ve ever eaten! And healthier than the kind you buy in the grocery!

Feel free to add additional ingredients AFTER you bake and cool the granola.  I like dried cherries with this Peanut Butter Granola, or if you really want a treat, add chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or white chocolate chips!  So good!

  • Yield: 12.5 cups granola 1x
  • Category: Brunch
  • Method: Baking
  • Cuisine: American


  • 4 cups Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 c Ground Flaxseed Meal
  • 3/4 c Peanuts (I used Roasted, Salted Peanuts)
  • 1/2 c Pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds)
  • 1/2 c Sliced or Shaved Almonds
  • 3/4 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/2 c Maple Syrup or Honey
  • 1/4 c Natural Peanut Butter (See Note 1)
  • 1/4 c Neutral Oil (I used olive oil, but any vegetable or grape seed oil will do)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F (Conventional Oven) or 330F for Convection/Fan. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, ground flaxseeds, peanuts, almonds, pepitas and salt.
  3. In a measuring cup or bowl, mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup (or honey) and oil. 
  4. Using a large spatula, mix the liquid ingredients together with the oat mixture.
  5. Pour and spread onto 1 or 2 parchment-lined baking sheets.  The granola should be in a layer about 1/2” thick, otherwise you will need to bake/stir a bit more than the time given.
  6. Bake 25-30 minutes, stirring the granola once midway through, until it is uniformly golden brown. Cool completely on the sheetpan. 
  7. Add dried fruits or chocolate chips, as desired.  Serve and store remainder in an air-tight container.


  1. You can use regular peanut butter here, too, but you will likely need to heat it just a bit along with the Maple Syrup or Honey to get it to incorporate.
