Peanut Butter and Jelly Granola

You know we love a good granola recipe! It all started with my famous Classic Granola recipe, which is a reader favorite. And then we moved on to this Chocolate Cherry one and more recently this Birthday Cake version. We couldn’t be more excited about this newest addition, because it involves one of the best flavor combos: peanut butter and jelly! This granola recipe truly tastes like the childhood classic sandwich, minus the bread. Plus, this recipe couldn’t be simpler to make.

This granola makes the perfect healthy snack that both kids and adults will enjoy.

Ingredients for pb + j granola mixed together in a bowl.

PB+ J Granola Ingredients

  • Oats
  • Roasted Peanuts
  • Ground Flaxseed
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Natural Peanut Butter
  • Honey
  • Strawberry Jam or Jelly (store-bought or homemade)

Substitutions

Oats: Look for Old Fashioned or Rolled Oats! Quick oats don’t work well in granola. Make sure to grab the package labeled as gluten-free if you need to be gluten-free.

Peanuts: You can swap in any type of nut, or even use seeds such as pumpkin or sunflower seeds.

Peanut Butter: Look for natural peanut butter, the kind that you’ll need to mix up before using. This type of peanut butter makes it easiest to mix together, plus it doesn’t have any additional ingredients added to it, which is always a good thing. If you only have creamy peanut butter, you might have to heat it up to get it drippy before using. Feel free to swap it out with almond butter or sunflower butter too!

Sweeteners: Feel free to swap in maple syrup in place of the honey.

Strawberry Jam: It’s easy to swap in your favorite flavor of jam / jelly. You can use store-bought or homemade. We tried this with a few different types, and especially liked the granola when it was made with some jam that still had some small pieces of whole fruit it in.

Ways to Serve PB + J Granola

Honestly, this granola is perfect on it’s own as a snack! But here are some other suggestions on how to serve it:

  • With milk-of-choice and berries
  • With yogurt (check out this coconut milk yogurt recipe or greek yogurt recipe)
  • In a smoothie bowl
  • Straight up as a snack
  • On top of ice cream
  • With banana or an apple and nut butter

How to Store It

Because this granola is made with jelly, it’s best to store it in an airtight container inside the refrigerator for optimum freshness. It will last in the refrigerator for about 3 weeks. I’ve also kept it for a few days at room temperature and it was fine too, but it’s preferable to store for long term freshness in the fridge.

I like to store granola in glass containers or mason jars!

Notes

Make sure to look for gluten-free oats if you need to be gluten-free

For this recipe, it’s best to use natural peanut butter (or almond butter) which tend to be thinner and more drippy. Typically, you’ll need to stir it together before you use it. If you only have creamy peanut butter, I recommend gently heating up the honey and the peanut butter together first before you add it to the bowl to mix together.
