What to Eat with Granola –  Apple & Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl

If you’re looking for a fresh idea for what to eat with granola, consider a homemade granola in this Apple & Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl.

The health benefits of making your own granola are enormous just in the sense that you’re not tossing in a bunch of added sugar.

 Healthy granola isn’t hard to make on your own.


old-fashioned rolled oats raw nuts and raw seeds sea salt cinnamon coconut oil raw honey vanilla extract dried fruit

In a large mixing bowl, combine old-fashioned rolled oats, raw nuts and/or seeds, a healthy pinch of sea salt and cinnamon. Stir well to coat.

Add the melted coconut oil, raw honey, and vanilla extract to the oat mixture. Stir well ensuring every oat and nut is lightly coated in the oil and honey.

Spread the granola onto the prepared baking sheet and use the flat side of the rubber spatula to arrange in an even layer. Bake until lightly golden, about 22 to 24 minutes, stirring halfway through.

Allow the granola to cool completely, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Gently break into the cluster-sized bites you desire.

 Add the chopped dried fruit of your choice only after the granola has cooled completely.

This method makes more granola than you will need for a single smoothie bowl.
