Crunchy, chewy, nutty, and sweet. This vanilla almond butter protein granola makes a nutritious and delicious breakfast or snack!

Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 serving vanilla protein powder (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips or chopped chocolate chunks
  • FAGE yogurt and fruit for serving
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat. Set aside.

  2.  In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add almond butter and honey, stirring until the almond butter is melted and fully combined with the honey. Stir in vanilla extract. 

  3. Remove from heat and add oats, protein powder (if using), flax, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well and use a spatula to ensure that all of the oats are well coated. 

  4. Spread the granola mixture over a baking sheet, leaving as many clusters as you want, and bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven, stir, and bake for another 8 minutes, or until lightly golden. 

  5. Let cool completely before adding chocolate and transferring to a storage container. The granola will still be slightly soft when it comes out of the oven, but it will harden up as it sits at room temperature and cools.
