Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 2 ½ cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • ½ cup shelled sunflower seeds
  • ¾ cup sliced almonds
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons PB2 or other peanut powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup honey*
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup creamy peanut butter**
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300℉. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the gluten-free oats, sunflower seeds, almonds, PB2, and salt, stirring until evenly combined.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the honey, coconut oil, and peanut butter. Microwave in high for 30 seconds, then remove the mixture and stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds, and then stir vigorously one more time, until all of the ingredients are combined well.
  4. Drizzle the peanut butter mixture over the dry ingredients, and mix thoroughly. Spread the granola out on the prepared pan in a thin, even layer.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, and then remove the granola from the oven, stir very well, and spread into a thin layer once more. Bake for another 15 minutes, and then remove from the oven. Quickly stir the granola once more, and spread into a thin, even layer, and then set aside and do not touch again until the granola is completely cool.
  6. Once the granola is cool, break it into chunks, and enjoy!
Notes
* If you are using processed peanut butter (Jif, Skippy, Peter Pan, etc.), reduce the honey by 1-2 Tablespoons
** Natural peanut butter and processed peanut butter both work well for this recipe
