if there’s not clusters, i don’t want the granola, so that’s why Vegan Peanut Butter and Chocolate Granola Clusters is everything and more. this is the only granola recipe you will need from now on, i promise that. the recipe is super simple to make but it’s jam packed with flavors and has THE best texture.
oh clusters, how i love thee!
oh peanut butter and chocolate, how i also love thee. i will take peanut butter and chocolate over any other desserts or flavors, any day.
in my opinion, nothing compares to huge and crunchy granola clusters with melted chocolate on top, it’s truly divine.
you don’t have to add the chocolate if you just want peanut butter granola, but it’s SUCH a good addition, i mean, who doesn’t love chocolate?
also, if you can’t have peanut butter or want to use something else, go for it!
just make sure the nut or seed butter that you use is runny. the peanut butter i used is really runny and it’s Whole Foods brand.
Trader Joe’s also has pretty runny nut and seed butters!
the ingredient list is really impressive, i think you’re going to be amazed.
from old fashioned oats to flax meal, peanut butter and coconut oil, there are so many goodies in here!
flax meal and tapioca flour are VERY important here. along with the nut butter, they’re going to help bind everything together.
if you don’t have tapioca flour then i would recommend using corn starch or arrowroot flour. those will do the same thing!
the granola bakes in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes and then you can rotate the tray 180 degrees to really ensure even baking. it will bake another 13 minutes.
you also have the option to use a spatula and very gently flip the granola. you will break it apart of course but just try to keep some large clusters in tact.
