Healthy Peanut Butter Honey Granola – The Guiltless Life


Healthy Peanut Butter Honey Granola
APRIL 30, 2012 21 COMMENTS

As the weather is getting warmer my breakfast tastes are moving away from my many oatmeal loves towards something a little – well, cooler.
I’ve always been a cereal fan but I have been on a great kick lately of incorporating healthy fats and proteins in my diet and cereal only tends to give me … well, carbs.
So in the spirit of keeping my good ol’ macronutrient balance on the right track, I set about with the task of making a healthy granola.
To many people just the word granola indicates health. But they could not be more wrong. Most regular granolas you buy at the store are:
High in calories
Loaded with sugar
Loaded with fat
Weak in protein and high in simple carbohydrates
This does not a healthy breakfast make!

I think I achieved my goal (with major thanks to Katie, whose granola bar recipe inspired and helped me to come up with this granola!), as this granola offers:
Under 150 calories per serving
Naturally sweetened with low-GI sweeteners
Just 4g fat per serving but it’s all healthy fat, courtesy of the peanut butter (you can use any nut butter or nut butter replacement you like)
Nearly 6g of protein per 1/2 cup serving. I have mine on top of nonfat Greek yogurt for a real protein kick!
So here we go…

INGREDIENTS (makes 12 1/2 cup servings):
1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies gluten-free brown rice cereal or other puffed grain cereal
1 1/2 cups Kashi GoLean cereal, or All-Bran twigs (Kashi GoLean is high in protein, so replacing it may change the protein count slightly)
1 cup rolled oats
1 scoop (about 5 tbsp) vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
