SunButter Granola

Jump to Recipe·Print Recipe

Salty sweet SunButter Granola! Clusters of oats, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, coconut, and more yummy things. For breakfast, snacking, or crunchy topping!


My granola straight from the bag consumption has recently reached a level that is truly not okay. Solution: make my own and store it in a JAR.

Yup, found a loophole. Where there’s a will SunButter Granola there’s a way.

See not just any ol’ granola would make this sneak around okay. Pushing the granola consumption bounds like this is only justified when it’s really really GOOD granola.

Perfectly salty/sweet granola. With clusters that are hunky, but not so ginormous they could be mini cookies – it must be sprinkle-able. And we don’t need every nut and seed known to man, but enough to make the texture interesting. And a little cinnamon because (even though I will continue to pretend it is not) fall is coming.

Sure it’s a breakfast food, but it’s also a brunch food and a snack food and a pack in your lunch bento food and a scoop on top of your smoothie bowl food and if you have never put granola on ice cream…OH MAN.

You can’t put a per day quota on that kind of goodness.

Here’s what we’re working with:

  • oats
  • sunflower seeds
  • coconut flakes
  • SunButter
  • maple syrup
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla
  • salt

One (and a half) bowls. One (and a half) pans. Thirty(ish) minutes. But honestly I never mind waiting for granola to bake, because breathing in that heavenly scent is almost as good as the actual munching.

You can swap the sunflower seeds for pumpkin. You can use other varieties of SunButter besides the green organic kind. You can add more cinnamon or less salt or pumpkin pie spice if your heart is telling you to.

Treat this as your yummiest nut-free + oil-free template, and freestyle it as you see fit. It’s your SunButter Granola now!

Granola MAKING game = strong. Granola rationing game = TBD. The odds are not looking good though…
