The classic combination of caramel, peanut butter and chocolate that comes from a snickers bar gets turned into a crunchy sweet granola. This Snickers Granola is healthy, requires just 8 plant based ingredients and takes just 30 minutes to make!

YUP, you read that right. Today I’m sharing with you an exquisite granola recipe: SNICKERS GRANOLA! Who doesn’t love caramel-y, peanut butter-y chocolate goodness? We all know eating a snickers bar is a treat, but what if it’s made from healthy ingredients, something you could have everyday and still feel amazing? I’m here to tell you, now you can.

If we look at whats in a snickers bar, the ingredients list isn’t that great. This Snickers Granola was inspired by the flavours coming from the classic snickers bar which is: caramel, peanuts and chocolate. Oh but we can’t forget about the nougat, which to me just tastes like sugar. So what goes into this granola?

  1. peanut butter & peanuts
  2. maple syrup
  3. coconut butter
  4. oats
  5. puffed quinoa
  6. mini chocolate chips
  7. and a bit of vanilla & salt

You may be wondering how we’re going to tackle the different components in a granola recipe so we can taste each element of caramel, peanut butter and chocolate. Well, basically we’re going to be making two different granolas and mixing it together! That way we get the distinct flavours of peanut butter and caramel. Then lastly, adding in the chocolate chips, because it wouldn’t be a snickers bar without any chocolate.

So we have the caramel component coming from the caramel granola. The peanut component coming from the peanut butter granola. The nougat component coming from the sweetness of both granolas and the added oats for a “chew”.

(NOTE: I did try to add dates to this granola, however found it way too sweet but do as you please). And of course the chocolate component is covered from the mini chocolate chips we added in. BAM we have a delicious (highly addicting) Snickers Granola!

I hope you enjoy this Snickers Granola as much as I do! If you’re on the fence of trying them, here’s why I think you’ll love this granola! It’s:

  • caramel-y
  • peanut butter-y

  • chocolate-y
  • basically eating a healthy deconstructed snickers bar
  • fully vegan
  • gluten and oil free
  • crunchy
  • sweet
  • salty
  • and just really damn tasty (seriously!!)

I rarely ever eat granola with milk but this Snickers Granola is SO good with some soy milk!

Snickers Granola


Description

The classic combination of caramel, peanut butter and chocolate that comes from a snickers bar gets turned into a crunchy sweet granola. This Snickers Granola is healthy & takes just 30 minutes to make!


Ingredients

Units Scale

Peanut Butter Granola:

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (40g)
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter (30g)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup rolled oats (80g)
  • 1/4 cup peanuts, chopped (40g)
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Caramel Granola:

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (40g)
  • 2 tbsp coconut butter, melted (28g)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup puffed quinoa (20g)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips (45g)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line a baking tray with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. Into a medium bowl, combine the maple syrup, peanut butter and vanilla into a bowl, and stir until combined. Add in the rolled oats, chopped peanuts and salt and mix until combined. Spread the peanut butter granola over the lined baking tray.
  3. Into another medium bowl, combine the maple syrup, coconut butter, vanilla and mix until stir. Add in the puffed quinoa and salt and mix until combined. Spread the caramel granola over the lined baking tray and gently mix it with the peanut butter granola. Bake for 25-28 minutes, rotating the tray half way. Once out of the oven, you can either add in the chocolate chips and mix the granola around and let it melt through or wait until fully cooled to keep the chocolate chips whole. Allow it to fully cool before storing or eating.

Notes

GLUTEN FREE: use oats labeled gluten free if needed

If you do not have puffed quinoa, you may substitute it for 1 cup of rolled oats, although I do really think the puffed quinoa adds a nice “chocolate bar” texture to this granola

Can be stored in an air tight container for up to 2 weeks.

  • Prep Time: 5 min
  • Cook Time: 25 min

  1. Is there anything you can sub for the coconut butter? Dying to make this but would have to order the coconut butter first. Thanks

  2. This sounds amazing. I have all thr ingredients except for the quinoa pops. Do u think I’d be able to use puffed rice cereal or is the “puff”too big and not crisp enough? Kids are home and run through everything in the house lol. I have to keep making thing in batches and storing. I’m also cooking so much ugh lol.

    Thanks in advance. Also, I need to add your recipes are awesome!

    1. Hey Jessi! I think rice cereal is okay as long as it’s crispy kind. You can also omit them completely and sub with a bit more oats or buckwheat 🙂 And thank you so much!

  3. I’m on my second batch in two days. I’ve been eating two bowls for breakfast and one for a snack after lunch. Safe to say… I’m obsessed.

  4. I just made this recipe and OMG IT’S SO GOOD!!! I subbed puffed rice for the quinoa since that’s what I had on hand, and I agree that having those crunchy puffed bits adds a really nice texture to the granola. Definitely making this again as soon as I finish this batch :9

  5. sooooo yummy. I found the salt content a bit high for my own tastes (will likely do a little more than half next time or just add salt to the peanut butter half), but the flavour combination of the two together was out of this world. Such great texture and flavour! Really digging the puffed quinoa!

  6. I also tryed it to use my puffed quinoa (it saved it from waste) ! It has a good peanut butter taste and flavor :p So good on top of nice cream or with yogurt ! Really good !

  7. This Granola is amazing!
    I made it at the weekend and it’s almost gone. I eat it on its own, or with coconut or vanilla yoghurt, I’ve had it with Weetbix as a topping too!
    Tastes incredible! I have told everyone about it.
