Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola

on February 12, 2013

Today’s cooking project was granola, from a recipe on Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes.  The recipe is for PB Banana Chocolate Chip granola, only I skipped the banana chips, since a) I didn’t have any, and b) I don’t like them.  Instead I doubled up on the nuts, and used almonds instead of sunflower seeds or peanuts.  I also substituted honey for maple syrup, I’ll have to add it to my shopping list because the maple part sounds good.  It’s a straightforward granola recipe, except that after it comes out of the oven, chocolate chips are sprinkled on top, while it’s still warm.  I baked mine a little longer, to make sure it turned out crunchy.

When the chocolate gets melty, the granola gets stirred up to mix in the chocolate.

It’s a decadent granola, for sure.  Tastes as good as it looks!  It makes for a good trail mix component or sprinkles on ice cream or yogurt.

    Could this be pressed in the pan to make bars? If so, when would you press the mixture and when would you cut the bars? I’m anxious to give it a try.

      It actually might work for bars, the mixture was kind of moist so I added more oats. If you kept to the recipe and pressed it into the pan, then baked it, didn’t stir. Not sure when you would cut it though. The granola isn’t too crunchy so it might be possible it cut it after it cools.
