We love peanut butter in our house! This variety of skillet granola has adds mini chocolate chips and peanut butter to your regular granola favorites. Best part? It’s ready in 5-minutes!
Last week, I had a grand plan to make this granola on Facebook Live with the kiddos. 4 takes later, it just wasn’t in the stars for us. I’m not quite sure if it’s my phone or the internet, but whenever I do a Facebook Live, it crashes. So sad!
I’ve made a few varieties of skillet granola now. First was the Honey Roasted Almond and then I shared the Coconut Chip version on my friend Katie’s blog, Mom to Mom Nutrition. I love that it’s ready in 5-minutes because I always burn it when I try to bake it in the oven. The girls like to pick their favorite mix-ins and switch up the flavor each time.
Since we’re such huge fans of peanut butter, this is our favorite. You can easily substitute cashew or almond butter too! We actually use a powdered version of peanut butter that we find at Costco for this. It’s also great to have on hand for smoothies. If you price it out, it’s actually cheaper to use for recipes like that–of course we stick to the jarred PB for sandwiches and other treats.
If there are any ingredients you don’t like, just swap them out! Coconut can easily be left out or you could sub craisins or dried apples for the raisins. Banana chips would be fab too! You always want to stick to the rolled oats, though. Quick oats give it a different texture…I’ve made that mistake before!

I like to store the granola in a mason jar with a reusable lid for up to 2 weeks. Honestly, it never lasts that long. If you don’t think you can use up the granola, it freezes for up to 6 months. You can also prolong it in the fridge!
