An incredibly easy and no-baking-required “granola”. This granola makes a great breakfast or snack! It’s healthy and highly customizable to your personal taste preferences!
I’m a huge fan of granola; it’s one of the best snacks and one of my favorite ways to eat breakfast. I’ll usually fill a bowl with vanilla Greek yogurt and then COVER that in granola — so delicious! Since we go through granola SO quickly, I usually make a batch (sometimes even two) a week.
Making granola isn’t hard, but the process can be a bit lengthy with flipping it every 7 or so minutes to keep it from burning. After burning a batch a few weeks ago, I thought wouldn’t it be nice to have granola you didn’t have to bake (!!!) Enter this amazing “granola” that has all the flavors you know and love, but with extremely little effort.
This batch of no-bake “granola” can be done in less than 10 minutes. It’s a great snack and perfect to top your yogurt or cereal with in the mornings! You can also customize the toppings to whatever you like best — raisins, craisins, mini chocolate chips, pistachios, almonds, cashews, coconut flakes, chia seeds, etc.

- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup oat flour * blend regular oats in a blender
- 1/4 cup rice krispie cereal
- 3/4 cup mix-ins of choice (I used 1/4 cup slivered almonds 1/4 cup craisins, and 1/4 cup chocolate chips)
In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, honey, vanilla extract, and salt.
Microwave for 20 seconds and stir until combined.
In a medium sized bowl, combine the oats, oat flour, and rice krispie cereal.
If you don't have oat flour, you can make it easily from oats. Simply grind oats in a food processor until they are a flour consistency.*
Add the peanut butter mixture to the oat mixture and stir well. It will be sticky and a little bit of a challenge to stir, but keep with it.
Add in any mix-in's of choice. (If using chocolate, let it cool a little or the chocolate will melt)
Stir again and crumble into granola bits.
*Make sure to measure the oat flour AFTER processing the oats. You can substitute flaxseed if desired
