Peanut Butter Granola

  • Author: Jessica Penner


A healthy, tasty, and EASY granola recipe!


  • ¼ cup canola or coconut oil
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla powder or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda (optional, see note)
  • 1 (540 ml or 19 oz) can of lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 3 cups rolled oats


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium pot, melt the oil, peanut butter, sugar, and vanilla.
  3. Once the mixture has just started to simmer, add in the baking soda, if using.
  4. Pour over the lentils and oats in a large bowl.
  5. Stir to combine.
  6. Spread onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Take out a stir. Bake another 10 minutes.
  8. Stir again. Keep baking and stirring at 10 minute intervals until the granola is a nice, golden brown. It will crisp up more as it cools.
  9. Allow to cool, then break up and store in a sealed container.


  • The baking soda makes the sauce fizz up temporarily, making it easier to combine with the oats/lentils. This is it’s only purpose in the recipe so it’s optional.
