3 Ingredient Vegan Peanut Butter Granola

I am officially 3 months free from animal products! I uploaded a new video to my channel describing my vegan journey thus far – check it out here!

I will also be releasing a vegan cookbook (currently in the beginning stages) that will be made available on my website – so stay tuned for updates on that! In the meantime, let’s make some granola!

Vegan Peanut Butter Granola (3 Ingredient Recipe)

I was spending $7 on a bag of vegan friendly granola every time I ran out. That’s ridiculous! It’s basically just baked oats? I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner – but I could be making my own granola and saving a ton of money! Also, I can make it exactly how I want it, and I will know exactly what is in the finished product! How exciting!

I eat a lot of smoothie bowls – check out my Instagram (It’s the motherload)!

What a beautiful world we live in – where granola doesn’t have to cost $7 a bag, and we post photos of our food before actually eating it. Good times.

For real though, I eat smoothie bowls virtually every morning, and I absolutely always include granola as a topping – so this recipe is used a lot!

Here’s What You Need:

  • Oats
  • Maple Syrup
  • Peanut Butter
  • Vanilla Extract (Optional)
  • Cinnamon (Optional)

Please note: If you are a vegan that eats honey, you may substitute the maple syrup for honey!

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Grease cookie sheet and set aside.
  3. Pour all ingredients in large bowl and mix until well combined.
  4. Lay mixture on cookie sheet and spread evenly.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip granola.
  6. Bake for an additional 20 minutes.
  7. Allow granola to cool for 10-15 minutes, then put in air-tight container. The granola will get harder and more crunchy as it cools.
Recipe Notes
  • You may choose to add dried fruit, chocolate chips, coconut flakes, etc. to cooled granola.
  • Granola will get crunchier as it cools - do not cook longer because you fear it is not crunchy enough, as it will burn.
  • Quick oats work fine for this recipe!
