Elvis Granola

And when I say “Elvis Granola”, I clearly mean chocolate peanut butter granola, also known as the best thing to ever dominate your cereal bowl…or mouth.

After making this yesterday, I literally danced around the kitchen with Dexter in crunchy-salty-sweet happy dance. This granola would be perfect over vanilla yogurt, with milk or just eaten straight out of hand, which was what I was doing for the majority of the day.

I.just.couldn’t.stop. And neither will you!

So, this recipe makes a lot but trust me, you’re going to want it. Personally, I don’t know who wouldn’t want an entire pound of chocolate peanut butter granola in their kitchen at all times, but that’s just me.

Plus, it’s great to have on hand for afternoon snacks and lasts practically forever when stored in a large tupperware container.

I also like to think this is somewhat healthy. Mainly because it contains oats, but also because it contains ground flax and dark chocolate. Nothing says “healthy” like dark chocolate and flax! Don’t worry about all the sugar and the teeny bit of canola oil. It’s all in the name of Elvis.

My old favorite breakfast was chocolate chip pancakes. My new favorite breakfast is a bowl of Greek yogurt topped with this granola. And a sliced banana for good measure. And maybe some bacon on the side. The touch of sea salt in this recipe really puts it right over the edge. Kinda like something else I know and love.

Breakfast of champions!

    I’d recommend keeping this in the fridge if you plan on it hanging around for a few days. Ground flax goes bad quickly when not refrigerated.

    I forgot that the flax seeds had to be ground so I ended up adding them whole.
    I also added unsweetened shredded coconut, chopped almonds and raisins.
    (Usually one would add raisins to the baked granola, but I forgot and mixed it in with my dry ingredients so the raisins were baked to chewy perfection. Who knew!)

I eat it at night with sliced banana and skim milk, so I decreased the choc chips so it wouldn’t be too sweet. I used 1/4 cup and added it a few minutes after it came out so that it actually somewhat melted into chocolate clumps throughout and it was to die for!!!! Love it! Thanks!!!

    So, I have wanted to try this recipe for a really long time but just haven’t but today I decided was the day (especially since I had 98% of the ingredients and substituted a couple). Well, I am that baker that does not read the recipe all the way through and thought that I just added all the ingredients together and poured on the syrup mixture AND I added the chocolate chips. Before putting it in the oven, I read the whole recipe and lo and behold, I had to pick out every single one of those chocolate chips.

    I thought you might get a kick out of that. The granola is delicious, though, and my mom and I have been devouring it. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

    […] Raspberries.ย  I just found this out, but raspberries are in season right now and probably on sale at your grocery store.ย  I always forget how wonderful they are until eating a a yogurt/granola/raspberry bowl for breakfast in the morning.

    Great recipe, but I would recommend less baking time than the 40 minutes. I followed the recipe exactly, but my granola was a little burnt. Next time I make this, I will cook for 30 minutes instead. I also added in some dried cherries and cranberries at the end. Yum ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh goodness…I saw this posted on Cotter Crunch’s website and this looks AWESOME and gosh darn it, I have all the ingredients except for the peanuts, so looks like it’s time to whip up some granola. Love it! Looks like this could also be a great gift idea. Thanks!

    I just made this for the second time and had to comment on how amazing it is!! I made a few subs – almond butter for the pb and agave for the maple syrup, just because I had those on hand. Thanks for another great go-to recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

    Woah, Jenna, this is really a masterpiece you’ve created here. I made this granola (and some others) to take with me to college to eat for breakfast, and, man, is it good. It has become my favorite meal of the day. I won’t let myself keep a jar of peanut butter in my room because I know I’d just eat it by the spoonful, so this Elvis Granola of yours is my peanut butter stand-in. I had to make myself ration it the first two weeks before I could get home to make a double recipe. Thanks for providing peanut butter and chocolatey happiness to this good food-deprived college student!

    […] Elvis Granola: This granola. Oh man. It isย pure peanut butterย deliciousness. With chocolate. Oh yesss. I can’t stop making it. Last semester, when I had no access to peanut butter for a couple of months, it was my peanut butter stand-in. And when a sudden chocolate craving hit me the other day, this granola saved me again: I picked the dark chocolate chips out of it to satisfy my chocolate need. This semester it has a permanent place in the rotation of granolas I bring from home and eat for breakfast. The only thing I change when I make is to use applesauce instead of canola oil and to add a bit moreย peanutย butter. You guys, you have to try this. You must. Elvis Granola from Eat, Live, Run. […]

    This sounds AMAZING!! If I added some flour, milk , eggs and baking powder, do you think I could make granola bars instead?
