Ingredients
 

  • 2 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup chopped peanuts
  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter
  • ¼ cup jelly (I used strawberry)
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. salt

Topping

  • 2-3 tbsp. natural unsalted unsweetened peanut butter
  • 2-3 tbsp. jelly

Instructions
 

  • Preheat over to 325°F either lightly grease or line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In a medium sided bowl add your peanut butter, jelly, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and salt and stir until well incorporate together.
  • Add the oats and chopped peanuts to the bowl and mix until completely coated with the wet mixture.
  • Transfer to sheet pan and press down the granola to form together into a round disk about ½ an inch in thickness.
  • Now drizzle the extra peanut butter on top of the granola and splatter little bits of the jelly. I simply dipped a knife in my peanut butter jar and drizzled it back and forth on my granola. For the jelly I took a spoon and dropped small spoonfuls on top of the granola.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes stirring carefully halfway through ensuring to keep clusters intact. Bake until slightly golden brown.
  • Let granola cool completely before touching it at all. This is a very important step to allow the granola to firm up and get crunchy. Once cooled break apart with your hands.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • I used a very lightly sweetened Crofter's Strawberry Jelly. 
  • For the peanut butter it is best to use a natural runny unsalted unsweetened variety. If you would like to replace the peanut butter any other natural nut butter will work.
