Easy homemade chunky peanut butter granola that’s perfectly sweet, extra crunchy and oh so delicious! A great breakfast or snack for my fellow peanut butter lovers out there!


  • 2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 11/4 cups peanut butter
  • 1 cup honey, divided
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the old-fashioned oats, quick-cooking oats, whole wheat flour, flaxseed and peanuts.
  3. In a small pan over low heat, add the peanut butter, 1/2 cup honey, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir constantly until peanut butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Pour over dry ingredients and stir together with a wooden spoon or your hands until dry ingredients are mostly coated. Stir in water until granola mixture is wet and a little mushy.
  4. Press mixture evenly into prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1/4 cup honey. Bake for 30 minutes or until granola starts to toast and turn a golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
  5. Once granola is cool, break it into large chunks and stir together a bit. Drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup honey. Return to oven for 10-15 minutes or until granola is evenly toasted and golden brown. Let cool completely. Store in a jar or bag that’s not completely sealed so granola stays crunchy.
