Breakfast Obsession

It’s now official, I am completely obsessed with breakfast foods, almost half of my blog posts are breakfast recipes. I don’t know why because 99% of the time I am a coffee and toast girl or if I have a few minutes extra I’ll have a little cereal with a chopped up banana on top. Nothing fancy or overly complicated to make because at 5am in the morning I am not at my best! I Just need something to get me through the morning till my morning break.

This month as I am sure you have worked out, we were mixing peanut butter with coffee. I am a complete coffee addict. I have far too many cups a day and I shift to decaf in the later part of the day so I can continue drinking more coffee. And the great thing about this recipe and all the others this month, is we get to eat our coffee as well as drink it! Coffee addicts rejoice.

If you love peanut butter and you love coffee then this peanut butter and coffee granola is for you.

Add-Ins

As with any homemade granola the add-ins are easy to swap out for your favourite things or possible to just leave out all together. Even plain this peanut butter and coffee granola is very flavoursome but whats the fun in homemade granola if we can’t have some add-ins.

I used granola staples; sultanas, pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries. Then to add a little colour and naughtiness I added in multi coloured chocolate covered sunflower seeds. If you can’t get hold of these delightfully coloured chocolaty treats then normal chocolate chips will make a great substitution. Or go wild and add in something completely different like dried banana chips. Honestly anything goes.

Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: British
Serves: 6 servings (see notes)
Ingredients
For The Peanut Butter Granola
  • 50 grams rolled oats (1/2 cup)
  • 25 grams quinoa (1/8 cup)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 and ½ tablespoons light agave nectar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
For The Coffee Granola
  • 50 grams rolled oats (1/2 cup)
  • 25 grams quinoa (1/8 cup)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoon instant espresso - divided
  • 2 tablespoons light agave nectar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Add-Ins
  • 50 grams sultanas (1/3 cup)
  • 45 grams dried cranberries (1/3 cup)
  • 50 grams pumpkin seeds (1/3 cup)
  • 70 grams chocolate covered sunflower seeds (1/3 cup)
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 160C / 325F / Gas mark 3 and line a large baking sheet with baking parchment or use a silicone baking mat, then place it to one side.
  2. First we are going to make the peanut butter granola. In a medium sized mixing bowl add in the oats, quinoa and cinnamon and give it a little mix together.
  3. In a small microwavable receptacle add in the light argave nectar, vanilla extract and peanut butter and heat for 30 seconds. Stir it all together and pout it over your oats.
  4. Using a spoon or your hands mix until all of the oats have been coated and are starting to clump together. Pour the oaty clumps onto one half of your prepared baking sheet.
  5. Next we are going to make the coffee granola. Using a clean medium sized bowl add in your oats, quinoa, ground cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of your instant espresso.
  6. In another microwavable receptacle add in the light agave nectar and vanilla extract and microwave for 30 seconds.
  7. Once out of the microwave add in the remaining instant espresso and stir it in.
  8. Pour this sweet coffee liquid over your oats and as before mix it all together until all of the oats are coated and become a bit clumpy like they did for the peanut butter granola.
  9. Spread the oats over the other half of your baking tray and pop your tray into your preheated oven.
  10. After 10 minutes take your oats out and give them a stir and flip them over and pop them back in the oven for a further 10 minutes.
  11. Once the baking time is up take them out of the oven but leave them on the hot tray to fully cool down. The granola will crisp up as it cools down.
  12. Once the granola is at room temperature measure out your add-ins.
  13. Pour them onto the baking sheet with your cooled granola and mix everything together.
  14. Put your finished granola in an airtight container and it should keep well for 2-3 weeks.
Notes
This dish is vegan and can easily be made gluten free by using gluten free oats. If you do want to make this peanut butter and coffee granola gluten free please check all ingredients for gluten before using them.

I have based each serving on a ½ cup measurement which is approximately 70 grams. You will get 6 of these measurements out of this recipe. For a larger batch please feel free to double or triple the recipe.

As I said in the post you can swap out the add-ins to what you prefer but try to keep the volume / weight around the same as I did for a good ratio. 1 and ⅓ cup or around 200 grams will be about right.

  3. This definetely is my kind of a granola! I have never even heard of chocolate covered sunflower seeds and got a little obsessed to find them here, though I don’t think they fit my refined sugar free diet..
    Anyways, your granola is a must try!

    • Hi Veera, chocolate covered sunflower seeds are really tricky to come by and I buy them online from America, because I wanted the chocolate vegan they were pretty expensive but because they are so colourful and tasty I just can’t resist!
