Gluten free peanut butter cup granola recipe by Basics With Bails

Do you think it’s possible to have a crush on food? Like potentially having a crush on something you created in the kitchen, because it’s just THAT GOOD. Either way, I’m pretty sure that’s how I’m feeling about this granola. I cannot take my eyes (or mouth) off of it.

This delicious granola contains very minimal and clean ingredients: nuts, coconut, cacao nibs, egg whites, coconut oil, peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, collagen, salt, and chocolate. As you can see, it is also very chunky. When it comes out of the oven, it’s one big slab of granola, and it is up to you to break it into the sizes you desire!

My absolute favourite thing about this granola is that it’s so easily adjustable to your liking. If you prefer using honey, use it in place of maple syrup. If you don’t like cashews, use pecans instead. If you like oats in your granola, add some oats in place of nuts. Make it your own. BUT don’t forget to add a layer of natural peanut butter on top!

As I’ve mentioned before I’m not a fan of store bought granola. It usually contains a ton of sugar, is very high in calories and bad fats, and is low in nutrients. This version is sugar free, has tons of healthy fats (which are so important for hormone health), and contain collagen peptides for joint health, gut health, and skin, hair, and nail strength! 

What’s he best part about this granola? The fact that you only need one bowl to mix everything together. Once it’s mixed together, all you need to do is spread it out over a baking tray, and bake it for a half hour to forty minutes, and make sure to stir the granola around a couple of times. Aka you won’t have 3 thousand dishes to do at the end of this recipe! AND your house will smell amazing after! Win-win!

How long will homemade granola stay fresh?

Store the granola in a sealed Tupperware container in the fridge, that way it stays crunchy. It should be good to go for at least a month (it probably won’t last that long though).  Perfect for breakfasts or a snack. Especially if you’re pairing it with a fresh warm cup of coffee.
