This crunchy and highly addictive peanut butter granola is made with crunchy toasted oats, creamy peanut butter and is studded with sweet dates. Delicious as a sweet snack or as part of an easy breakfast!
Preheat the oven to 300° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix the oats, coconut, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl.
Mix the peanut butter, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla together in a medium mixing bowl.
Add the peanut butter mixture to the oat mixture and stir until thoroughly incorporated.
Spread the mixture in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet, pressing it down a bit to compact it.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until browned around the edges.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and place it on a cooling rack. Allow the granola to cool completely.
When the granola is cool, transfer it to a container and stir in the peanuts and dates.
Store in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.
