Filled with healthful oats, whole wheat flour, peanut and honey, this granola forms into perfect crunchy chunks that tastes like a peanut butter cookie. Serve at breakfast with Greek yogurt for a sweet start to the day.

In this recipe, the addition of whole wheat flour binds the granola together into chunks, making it feel like you’re eating a peanut butter cookie. The best part? This is pretty healthy stuff! It’s filled with oats, whole wheat flour, peanuts, honey, and coconut oil – not a refined sugar to be found!
My favorite way to eat this is on top of plain Greek yogurt with sliced bananas or berries, but it’s also great with milk or by the handful.
