I’m a huge breakfast lover – eggs, bagels, omelettes, muffins – you name it, I love it. Some mornings I have time to cook, some I don’t. The mornings I’m scrambling to keep my life in order, I’m wanting something quick & easy that doesn’t require a lot (if any) cooking. This homemade low sugar granola is a perfect grab-and-go breakfast. I love to make my own granola because I can make several different versions of my favorite ingredients. Plus, I know exactly what I’m putting in it – some store bought brands are incredibly high in sugar and/or fat, and low in protein and/or fiber, so make sure you compare food labels when you’re shopping! One of my favorite ways to eat this is sprinkled on top of some Greek yogurt.
- 1 C quick cooking oats
- 1/4 C peanut butter
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 C sugar free syrup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a large cookie sheet and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together oats, salt and cinnamon. Set aside
In a microwave safe dish or on the stovetop, melt the peanut butter and sugar free syrup together together until smooth.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Stir in dry ingredients and mix until well combined and spread mixture on prepared cookie sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until granola is lightly browned, stirring the granola once gently half way through.
Remove from oven and let sit until cooled.
Once cooled, break apart and eat!
