oatmeal raisin cookie granola

oatmeal raisin cookie granola

this granola tastes like (very peanut butter-y) oatmeal raisin cookie dough …but has absolutely no refined sugars or added oil/butter, much unlike any granola you’d find at the store!  i added salted peanuts, chocolate chips, and raisins.  i also used a cinnamon raisin peanut butter i found at the store, but regular peanut butter or even almond butter would work too 🙂

 oatmeal raisin cookie granola

  • 2.5 cups whole rolled oats
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon (go by taste preference)
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter (i used chunky, but smooth peanut butter or almond butter would work)
  • 1.5 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Line large baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, peanuts, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, melt peanut butter and honey for about 30 seconds in the microwave.  Mixture will be runny.
  4. Pour melted peanut butter mixture over oat mixture.  Make sure all oats are moistened.
  5. Spread onto prepared baking sheet and press the oats down.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, remove and mix around so that all sides bake evenly.  Pop back into the oven for another 15 minutes.  Remove and mix in the raisins and chocolate chips.  The warm granola will melt the chocolate and bind the granola.  Store in an airtight container and enjoy!

ps- i think you’ll enjoy these healthy bites too 😉
