November is national peanut butter month. When I first found out, I was notably excited. After all, peanut butter is delicious! I knew I wanted to create a treat to celebrate, but I wanted to make something other than the standard peanut butter cookie. After digging through my cupboards and wracking my brain, I finally decided on granola.

This peanut butter granola is the perfect addition to your morning bowl of cereal or as a topping on your plain Greek yogurt. It's also delicious on its own as a snack. With only four ingredients, it's easy to whip up. This is a treat your entire family will love!

Ingredients needed for easy peanut butter granola


  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a small saucepan, cook the peanut butter, brown sugar, and vanilla over medium heat until smooth. Be sure to continuously stir so that it doesn't burn.
  3. Remove your pan from heat and stir in the oats.
  4. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Spread your oat mixture evenly on your cookie sheet. Sprinkle a little extra brown sugar on top if desired.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until it starts turning golden brown. Pull your cookie sheet out of the oven.
  6. Gently stir your granola, taking care not to break up any clusters. Bake for an additional 5 to10 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Let granola cool completely. Then enjoy as a snack or a topping treat!
