3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Granola - PERFECT sprinkled over fruit and yoghurt for a healthy breakfast or dessert.
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE granola? It's one of my weaknesses, and rather disappointingly, most are pretty high in syns. Not in the least bit surprising when you look at the ingredients in most branded varieties.
While there is some granola you can enjoy as a Healthy Extra B choice (have you actually seen the measily amount you get?) - It's really not worth wasting my healthy extra b choice on.
So of course I had to come up with some healthier granola recipes, that I could enjoy on a regular basis and that gave me a decent size serving to sprinkle over my yoghurt and fruit, while not breaking the daily syn allowance.
First up was a delicious Low Syn Pumpkin Granola - that was actually a pure genius moment, when I had some leftover pumpkin puree from making these delicious Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes:
and these amazing Pumpkin waffles. Just look at how delicious they both look, right?
Not one to hate waste, I combined the leftover pumpkin puree I had with oats and some maple syrup and the result was this delicious Pumpkin Granola, with a perfect crunch for topping some yoghurt and fruit.
you can even take this pumpkin granola to a whole other level and make this Pumpkin Granola Yoghurt Parfait - which is simply divine!!!
Next up in the granola variations - was this Low Syn Banana Granola, a perfect way to make a healthier low syn granola, using just banana, oats and maple syrup.
and again I couldn't help myself, this delicious Banana granola got turned into a absolutely amazing Banana Granola Yoghurt Parfait, which is literally to die for!!!
and of course we all love Chocolate right? Well you can also satisfy those chocolate cravings, with this chocolatey goodness in this Low Syn Chocolate Granola - which is just 1 HEb and 3 syns and again using only a few ingredients.
Then the very last granola recipe I made was this Low Syn Apple Granola. I had made some home apple sauce for the kids (which they love) and not happy with having 3 variations of granola already, combined the apple sauce with oats and maple syrup and a little pinch of cinnamon, for a delicious apple granola.
My kids love peanut butter, in fact we all love peanut butter. I will often have a spoonful on my oatmeal in the morning with some fruit, it's such a yummy combination. A perfect dip for apple slices too.
I hadn't made any granola in a while, and was actually about to make up a batch of my delicious Banana Granola, when I spotted the peanut butter still out on the counter from the kids snack. A peanut butter granola just seemed like a perfect idea.
3 ingredients, nothing complicated, combined together, spread out on a baking tray and baked till lovely and golden, make this amazing Peanut Butter Granola. It really is as simple as that.
It's also really quick to make, just 15 minutes in the oven, meaning you don't even need to make this in advance. I always make enough for 3 days worth when I make my granola, although sometimes it doesn't even last that long, if the kids steal some too.
You could totally double or triple up the recipe to make more, it will keep fresh for about a week in a lidded jar. It will possibly keep even longer than that, but I haven't had any last much longer than that.
My favourite way to serve this Peanut Butter Granola is with yoghurt, some crisp apple and blueberries. If you have a few extra syns you could even drizzle some peanut butter over the top too, for that extra peanutty goodness. Yum!!

If I was using dried peanut butter how would I work it out I know a tbs is one syn but not sure how much to use. I have just started using dried peanut butter and ordered a chocolate one its great in yogurt looking forward to putting in baked oats. Also with ur chocolate granola can I use something else aside of banana I dont like its flavor.looking forward to hearing from u thanks.

Hi Maeve - I am not sure it will work well with the dried peanut butter, you need the natural oil of the peanut butter to make the granola for crunchy. For the chocolate granola, you could try using apple sauce instead.
Omg! Just made this and it's amazing. Don't even need a lot of it but gives a lovely crunch to some yoghurt and fruit. As always another fab recipe!
