I have just one thing to say. Peanut butter cups for breakfast. In the form of granola of course! I just love homemade granola. I have many homemade granola recipes on my blog. This Peanut Butter Cup Granola makes you feel like you are having a special treat for breakfast. After all, peanut butter and chocolate were made for each other.
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
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a small sauce pan, heat up the peanut butter, milk, maple syrup and applesauce on med. heat until the peanut butter has melted. Add the wet to dry. Spread mixture onto a lined baking sheet
and bake for 15 minutes. Pull the baking sheet out and move the granola around a bit. Place back in the oven and bake for another 10 minutes. Serve with milk or sprinkle over plain yogurt. If you are feeling extra feisty, you can sprinkle a few chocolate chips in.
