As far as granola recipes go, you can’t get much easier than this one. It’s basically three steps: stir, pour, and bake. Oh, and then eat it all, because it’s PEANUT BUTTER and CHOCOLATE. And that’s pretty much the combo that life is made of.
Seriously. Watch how easy this is! So easy it (ahem, after editing) fits into a 45 second video. Ain’t no thang!
I’ve struggled a lot with making granola in the past. I love big, chunky granola. The kind that you can eat with your fingers instead of needing a spoon. I like granola that is basically just broken up granola bars. And man, that’s a hard thing to replicate!
Why? Well, because of the sugars in granola, it tends to burn in the oven if you don’t stir it frequently. And guess what stirring does? It breaks up all those beautiful chunks of deliciousness. So to solve this issue, I made a no-stir granola. Boom. Chunks. And heart-shaped ones, at that.
This batch of granola lasted approximately 27 hours in our house. As I type this very post, there is an empty Mason jar (well, except for a few crumbs on the bottom) sitting next to my computer. This granola is so tasty, it never even made it into a bowl or on top of yogurt—it went straight to fueling my husband’s late night homework sessions. He had a particularly busy week last week, and I think this granola might have been the magic potion that got him to pass his exam.
That or he’s a really intelligent guy with a great work ethic who studied really hard. But my money is on the granola. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola totally sounds like brain food, doesn’t it?
If you’ve ever been shy about making granola in the past, this version is a great Granola 101 recipe. It’s really hard to mess up. Honestly there are only two ways to really fudge it up, you either undercook it, and it doesn’t get crispy. Which, hey, isn’t the end of the world. It’s still delicious, and you can always pop it back in the oven for a few minutes. Or you overbake it, and it turns a little brown. It’ll still be delicious! As long as it doesn’t crumble into ashes, you’re still going to have some delicious, tasty granola to snack on. Enjoy!
This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip granola comes together in a flash and makes a big, chunky granola that is perfect for snacking.
If you use sweetened peanut butter, you may want to cut back a bit on the amount of maple syrup used to sweeten the granola.
The granola will feel soft when it first comes out of the oven, but should crisp up as it cools.

Awesome granola, Cassie! With four boys and one husband, I’m betting this won’t make it to twenty-seven hours at our house!
What if you don’t have coconut oil? Can another be subsututited?
You know, I haven’t made it with anything but coconut oil, but I don’t see why another oil or fat (like melted butter) would work. If you try it out, let me know!
making this TODAY!! and your video was terrific
You can never go wrong with the classic combo of pb and chocolate ! I love that this granola is super chunky and clustery!
I have a double-batch in the oven right now and it smells AMAZING. I obviously licked the bowl. I’m gonna add some raisins to mine – can’t wait!
Anything with peanut butter and chocolate is a winner in my book. This looks amazing!
Can’t wait to try this recipe–sounds perfect to take on a hike!
Great recipe! I plan on making it later today – please remember to click on the “instructional video” because our viewers LOVE videos! I did it on this one but please try to remember for next time!

Do you edit yourself?? I feel like I’m just getting the hang of photography and now everything is going to video haha.
