I have just one thing to say. Peanut butter cups for breakfast.
I was a huge fan of the Reese’s peanut butter cups. Let’s be honest though. They are filled with chemicals and additives and probably not much real peanut butter or chocolate. So I tried to create a dish that resembles that naughty taste, without the guilt. What better time than breakfast to eat chocolate and peanut butter?
Peanut Butter Cup Granola
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup peanut butter (for a peanut free option, click here.)
1/4 cup applesauce
3 T coco powder
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
2 T non dairy milk
Preheat oven to 330. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix the wet into a small bowl. You may have to microwave the peanut butter to soften it enough to stir. Add the wet to dry. Spread mixture onto a lined baking pan and bake for 15 minutes. Pull the pan out and move the granola around a bit. Place back in the oven and bake for another 5-7 minutes. Serve with milk or sprinkle over plain yogurt. If you are feeling extra feisty, you can sprinkle a few chocolate chips in.
