Peanut Butter Cookie Granola

For the days that you wake up and just want to eat cookies for breakfast, this recipe for Peanut Butter Cookie Granola is for you.

Peanut Butter Cookie Granola

Breakfast is the one true constant in my days lately.  Lunch is always up in the air – am I going to have time to actually make something for lunch or am I eating crackers and cheese while standing in the kitchen again?  Dinner has been unpredictable, too.  By the time 6:00 rolls around and I haven’t planned anything, we either eat whatever leftovers are in the fridge or order take out.

But breakfast.  I always make time for breakfast.

I’ve been trying to eat anything with oats for breakfast lately (for lactation!) and since oatmeal takes awhile to make, and I never think to make overnight oats until the morning of, I’ve been loving yogurt and homemade granola.

Peanut Butter Cookie Granola

I first made this Peanut Butter Cookie Granola before Lars was born, and stored a couple of baggies in the freezer (it freezes great!) for a quick yogurt topping.  My stock was gone in no time, and this time when I made it again I just knew I had to share the recipe with you all because this stuff is seriously addicting.

The addition of whole wheat flour binds the granola together into chunks, making it feel like you’re eating a peanut butter cookie.  The best part?  This is pretty healthy stuff!  It’s filled with oats, whole wheat flour, peanuts, honey, and coconut oil – not a refined sugar to be found!

My favorite way to eat this Peanut Butter Cookie Granola is on top of plain Greek yogurt with sliced bananas or berries, but it’s also great with milk or by the handful.

So since it’s Friday, go ahead and eat a real cookie for breakfast.  But then this weekend, make this Peanut Butter Cookie Granola for the rest of the week so you feel like you’re eating a cookie for breakfast!

  1. I really enjoy overnight oats but can never remember to make them at night either! Granola is the way to go! This flavor sounds so so good! Happy weekend!
