Equipment

  • 2 baking sheet pans
  • 2 silicone baking sheet liners or parchment paper
  • mixing bowl and spoon

Ingredients

  • 4 cups oats (rolled oats or quick oats)
  • 1 cup unsalted dry-roasted or roasted peanuts (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (plus 1-2 tablespoons, if desired)
  • 2 tablespoons oil (any neutral vegetable oil or melted coconut oil works fine)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla flavor
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (lessen or eliminate if using salted peanuts)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Roughly chop 1 cup of unsalted dry-roasted peanuts. (See notes below regarding peanuts.)
  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together chopped peanuts with oats.
  • Add peanut butter, maple syrup, oil, vanilla, and salt to your mixing bowl, and stir until well-combined.
  • Line 2 baking sheet pans with parchment paper or silicone liners.
  • Spread granola mixture evenly across both baking sheet pans.
  • Bake granola for 15 minutes, then rotate baking sheets (from upper to lower oven racks to promote more even baking), before returning to oven to bake for another 15 minutes. Bake for a total of 30-34 minutes, or until the edges of granola are just starting to turn a golden brown.
  • Allow granola to cool completely before stirring or removing it from baking sheet pans.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks at room temperature.

Notes

  1. This recipe calls for unsalted roasted or dry-roasted peanuts. If you're using salted peanuts for this recipe, just make sure to decrease or eliminate the added salt. If you're using dry-roasted peanuts, check the list of ingredients to make sure they're vegan (sometimes gelatin is hiding in this ingredient lists). You'll also want to make sure there are no added seasonings like garlic or onion powder in your dry-roasted peanuts, to avoid any weird flavor combinations.
  2. You'll need creamy natural peanut butter for this recipe, which means that the only ingredients listed on the peanut butter jar should be peanuts and salt. That's it. If you're new to natural peanut butters, just be aware that oil separation on the top of the jar is normal, but you'll need to carefully stir the separated oil into the peanut butter before measuring the peanut butter for this recipe.
