This peanut butter granola is a great way to start off your morning and is also a great pick-me-up snack. You know exactly what you’re getting with this homemade recipe so forget all of those added ingredients that come with the store-bought kind. It’s also full of that satisfying crunch and is super easy to prepare. Enjoy!


  • 6 cups of old-fashioned oats
  • 1 ½ cups of finely chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup of flax meal (ground flax seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • ¾ cup of brown sugar
  • ½ cup of applesauce
  • ⅓ cup of canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F ( 120 degrees C ). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, walnuts, flax meal, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine the peanut butter, brown sugar, applesauce, and canola oil. Heat over medium and stir, just until ingredients are well-combined. Remove from heat, add the vanilla and stir again.
  4. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the oat mixture and combine thoroughly.
  5. Divide the granola between baking sheets, spreading evenly. Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes, until the granola is golden and feels dry.
  6. Allow to cool completely and store in an air-tight container.
