Low Sugar Peanut Butter Granola

Low Sugar Peanut Butter Granola

Vicky Coates

I think the title for this recipe does all the talking with the combination of two magical foods…granola and peanut butter! To me this is heaven in a bowl! The granola is very low in sugar unlike regular shop bought granolas, with an added protein kick from the peanut butter.

I think I may have just made the best granola ever! Not to blow my own trumpet but this granola disappeared from the kitchen within a week (and it was only me eating it).

When mixed with almond milk or alongside yoghurt and berries it truly was the yummiest healthy breakfast or often snack in my case too (whoops!).

I added in some cornflakes for an extra bit of crunchy texture alongside the oats which worked a treat. The peanut butter also compliments the added cinnamon perfectly and helps to bind all the ingredients together. As unlike a lot of granolas theres very little coconut oil used in this recipe. I also used a zero sugar fruit syrup to keep the sugar levels low but you could use any liquid sweetener you have in your cupboard.

This is certainly a granola I think will be on repeat week after week in my house and I’d love to hear your thoughts if you try it out too.

Heres the recipe:
