peanut butter banana chip granola
I’ve partnered with my friends at Jewel-Osco to bring you this gluten-free and vegan peanut butter banana chip granola.
I am a huge granola fan – it’s one of my favorite snacks and I eat it almost every day. I realized that I didn’t have a granola recipe on the blog and it was time to change that, so I created this delicious, crunchy peanut butter and banana chip granola. I made it with rolled oats, cashews, almonds, and banana chips. Also, it’s low in sugar and sweetened only with pure maple syrup and organic banana chips.
This granola is bursting with big peanut butter flavor that makes this granola rich and satisfying. The flavor provided by the banana chips pairs perfectly with the peanut butter and adds an extra crunch. It’s the perfect blend of flavors and textures!

how to make peanut peanut butter banana chip granola
It’s actually easy to make homemade granola! Plus, you control the amounts and types of ingredients used so you can make it healthier and not chalked full of sugar and processed foods. I used all organic foods using Jewel-Osco’s O Organics® so this granola is unprocessed and nutritious!
First, in a small food processor, blend 1/4 cup oats and 1/4 cup banana chips into a flour like consistency. The banana chip powder helps add extra sweetness and the oat flour helps create a crunchy granola.
Mix the oat banana chip flour with the other dry ingredients. Set aside.
Next, in a microwave safe bowl, microwave the peanut butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup in increments of 30 seconds, until the coconut oil is fully melted (about a minute). Stir until the mixture is smooth. Pour the peanut butter mixture into the oat and nut mixture.
Finally, stir the mixture until it’s well combined and spread the granola out evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
PRO TIP: do not stir the granola while it bakes. Instead, allow for it to clump together during baking. At the end, you can break it apart. This allows it to form large crispy clusters.
how to enjoy this granola
My favorite way to enjoy this granola is with Greek yogurt and fresh berries. My husband prefers to eat it on its own as a snack. Finally, you can pour ice cold milk over it and eat it like cereal. Any way, it’s delicious!
This peanut butter banana chip granola is a delicious, healthy, and satisfying breakfast treat!
