Posted in | Posted by: | Tagged: | Leave a reply


  • 2 cups old-fashioned (or quick cooking) oats

  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon

  • ¼ tsp sea salt

  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a large cookie sheet and set aside.

  • In a small bowl, mix together oats, salt and cinnamon. Set aside

  • In a microwave safe dish or on the stovetop, melt the peanut butter and honey (or maple syrup) together until smooth.

  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

  • Stir in dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

  • Spread mixture on prepared cookie sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until granola is lightly browned, stirring the granola once gently half way through. (A great way to test for doneness is to remove a small portion of the granola from the pan and set it on the counter. If it hardens as it cools the rest of the granola is done)!

  • Remove from oven and let sit until cooled.

  • Once cooled, break apart and eat!
