Only a few more days and my son will be home for the summer. Actually, since he’s a senior this year, he’ll be home period. Now, more than ever I need to have options for a quick, healthy breakfast.

Peanut Butter Coconut Oil Granola

While there are a few cold cereal brands I buy occasionally, I much prefer to make my own healthy cereal at home. This peanut butter coconut oil granola is one of my favorites.

Peanut butter and coconut are a delicious combination. I made it a little bit healthier by adding coconut oil to the mix as well. Coconut oil has been said to help increase the good cholesterol in your body and who doesn’t need a little bit of that?

After that, you can add whatever else you like from pumpkin seeds to raisins. You could add dehydrated apples, walnuts, and dried cranberries as well. It’s entirely up to you.

This is a great healthy breakfast for those days you’re short on time. Add a sliced banana to the top for even more yum. If you enjoy the taste of peanut butter and coconut together, you’ll want to check out a few of the other posts that are part of the Peanut Butter Bash this month.

Of course, most recipes that call for peanut butter can easily be made with another type of nut butter if you have a peanut allergy. Those that follow the Paleo diet or have allergies to peanuts can try making this recipe with sunflower butter, almond butter, or cashew butter instead.

How to make peanut butter granola clusters

If you want to make granola clusters to snack on simple make the chunks larger when you place them on the cookie sheet. You may need to adjust the cooking time for a bit more time to be certain it’s dry enough.
