We go through a lot of granola around here, and now that the kids are back in school even more so. Stella loves granola with her smoothie bowls every morning. She usually takes a small container to have with her lunch. I have it nearly every day with my yogurt.  Of course granola is delicious with milk, and this chocolate peanut butter granola is amazing plain right out of the jar.

Bob's Red Mill Oats

And even though this granola seems totally decadent, it is a snack you can feel good about made with only a handful of simple ingredients, including Bob’s Red Mill Oats.

Oats are an incredibly versatile whole grain, and we use them for so much more than just oatmeal. Oats are rich in dietary fiber, help reduce cholesterol, and Bob’s Red Mill oats are kiln roasted to give them that wholesome flavor. We always have a few jars of overnight oats made with Bob’s Steel Cut Oats in the fridge, and for granola I almost always use Gluten Free Oats.

If you love peanut butter with your chocolate as much as I do, this is a granola I know you are going to love. Like pretty  much everything else, homemade granola is so much better than store bought, and making granola at home is fast and easy. You probably already have everything you need to make this chocolate peanut butter granola in your pantry. So what are you waiting for?
