Peanut Butter Granola

Make your own granola at home to top on acai bowls, smoothies, yogurts, and more! The UC San Diego Center of Mindfulness brings to you a quick and easy snack that combines amazing flavors into a simple granola. A great way to test for doneness is to remove a small portion of the granola from the pan and set it on the counter. If it hardens as it cools the rest of the granola is done!



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a large cookie sheet.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together oats, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In a microwave safe dish or on the stovetop, melt the peanut butter and honey (or maple syrup) together until smooth.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  5. Stir in dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  6. Spread mixture on prepared cookie sheet.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until granola is lightly browned, stirring the granola once gently half way through.
  8. Once cooled, break apart and eat!
