If you are looking for a delicious weekend breakfast, or a yummy daytime snack, you have come to the right place. This peanut butter and chocolate granola is definitely the winner when it comes to homemade, sweet granola. On even more exciting news, this recipe only takes 6 easy-to-find ingredients, 5 to 10 minutes of active prepping – more accurately, 5 to 10 minutes of combining everything together – time, and an hour of cooking time in the oven!
I came up with this recipe, because I have been craving some tasty, and slightly different breakfast dishes in the weekends. This recipe is perfect for those morning – any time of the day really – when you just need to treat yourself to something sweet, and tasty. Personally, I have been enjoying this granola with vanilla soy milk lately. Vanilla soy milk, and this granola are the absolute perfect combination!
What I love about this recipe is that it is naturally sweetened, perfectly nutty, and chocolaty, as well as deliciously sweet, and just overall beautiful. To add to those pluses, this recipe is also really simple. I guarantee you, you cannot mess this one up even if the kitchen isn’t your area.

I have grown to like peanut butter more and more slowly over the past six months. I used to never eat it as child. Probably because it just is not that big of a thing in where I an from. But now that I have started using it in cooking, and baking I definitely get the fuss surrounding it.
You will need oats, peanuts, peanut butter, agave, or maple syrup (honey will also do perfectly), raisins, and dark chocolate for this peanut butter and chocolate granola.
And I promise you the prepping process could not be any easier than it is. All you need to do is mix the oats, the peanuts, the peanut butter, and the syrup nicely together in a bowl. Remove the mixture from the bowl into a pan, or a casserole, how ever you would like to call it. Cook in a 250 °F, or ~125 °C oven for an hour. Mix the granola every 15 minutes to get a beautiful, and even bake. Chop the dark chocolate into tiny pieces, and add the chocolate to the granola with the raisins. Slightly mix until everything is evenly together, and you have a ready, delicious peanut butter and chocolate granola in your hands!
I like to preserve my granola in jar so I can easily take some whenever I feel like having my daily dose of something sweet, beautiful, and chocolaty!
Peanut Butter And Chocolate Granola
- 2 cup (5 dl) oats (be careful to choose gluten-free oats, if you want your granola to be gluten-free)
- 1 1/2 cup (~3 3/4 dl) peanuts
- 3 big tbsp peanut butter
- 1/4 cup agave syrup (or maple syrup, honey)
- 1 cup (2 1/2 dl) raisins
- 100 grams of dark chocolate
- Preheat the over to 250 °F, or ~125 °C.
- Chop the peanuts slightly. You can decide whether you want the to be bigger, or smaller in the granola. Just chop the to the size of your choosing.
- Mix the oats, chopped peanuts, peanut butter, and the syrup (or honey) together well in a bowl.
- When the mixture of oats, peanuts, peanut butter, and syrup in evenly mixed, transfer the mixture into a pan/casserole, and put to the oven.
- Cook for 60 minutes. Stir the mixture a bit every 15 minutes, so that the granola has an even cook.
- Remove for the oven after 15 minutes.
- Chop the dark chocolate into tiny pieces,
- Add the raisins, and the dark chocolate to the granola mixture. I like to add the raisins, and the chocolate when the granola is still warm, since that makes the chocolate melt to the mixture slightly.
- Transfer to a jar, or a bowl where you let the granola cool down, and retain it.
