Peanut Butter Granola Recipe — Double-Duty Diet

This gluten-free spin on granola was originally created by Makeover Momma™ as an easy treat to feed an (inevitably picky) toddler…but swiftly turned into a family favorite. The Peanut Butter Fruit Chew Granola* quick and easy to make for children, can be taken to work for a healthy treat, kept in a bag for on-the-go snack, or provides a burst of needed energy when your day is in a downward spiral.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 cups of peanut butter flavor gluten-free cereal- like Barbara Bakery brand Peanut Butter Puffins
  • 2 bags (4 oz. each) Eden Organic Brand “Wild Berry Mix”-contains organic dried blueberries, cranberries, raisons, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and almonds.
  • 1 small bag dried plums or apricots- like “Organic by Miriani”
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup of gluten-free rice syrup- like Lundburg Organic Sweet Dreams Brown Rice Syrup

Pour the peanut butter cereal, gluten-free dried fruit/nut trail mix, and additional dried fruits in a bowl, mixing thoroughly. In a separate small pan on the stove, combine the peanut butter and gluten-free rice syrup, and heat on low for 6 to 7 minutes, stirring the mixture until creamy and smooth. Once the mixture is silky, pour into the bowl with the dried granola ingredients, and stir so that everything is coated. Empty the sticky mixture into a 13” by 13” pan, press until flat and sticking together, and let it cool in the fridge overnight. You’re done!


Extra Note: If you prefer to create this granola from scratch, than any combination of the following ingredients could be added- provided they are gluten-free and from a GF manufacturer. For example, add any kind of dried fruits, additional nuts like walnuts, hemp seeds, or carob chips, or anything else preferred.
