Peanut butter granola

I have recently discovered that I actually like peanut butter after years and years of avoiding it like the plague. The first time I tasted peanut butter it was one of those cheap junk versions with lots of added nasties (and probably not too many peanuts) and I just hated the flavor and texture, it felt like it was growing in my mouth. I still remember the experience and flavor all too well and so I didn’t eat it again for years. However, last month I decided to give it another try and this time I bought an organic one with nothing but peanuts and a little sea salt and as it turns out I actually like it!! Haha I am stupidly excited about that because I already have a million ideas for recipes with peanut butter, so please bear with me if the blog becomes a bit flooded with peanut butter recipes the next couple of weeks ;)

The first of many peanut butter recipes (sorry, I promise I’ll get over it) is this peanut butter granola that I am completely obsessed with. I have been using it as a topping for pretty much everything and I absolutely love how indulgent it makes my smoothie bowls taste.

Directions:

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 150 c / 300 f
  2. Add the peanut butter, honey and water to a pan on medium heat and stir until everything is melted and well combined.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the raisins and goji berries) and mix well until everything is well coated in the peanut butter/honey mixture.
  4. Pour the granola onto a pan lined with baking paper and toast it in the oven for about 15 minutes at 150 c / 300 f while stirring every 5 minutes. The granola is done when it is toasted and lightly golden.
  5. Let it cool, add the raisins and goji berries and store it in an airtight jar.
  6. Enjoy!

    Hvad kan bruges til smoothie bowls, som erstatning for banan? Kan ikke lide banan og kan smage det gennem det meste :/

      Årh den er lidt svær, jeg bruger aaaaltid banan, så er ikke så god til alternativer :/ Måske avocado? Det giver en lækker cremet konsistens og plejer at smage super lækkert i smoothies :)

      Tak for en virkelig lækker og inspirerende blog.
