Peanut Butter-Maple-Pecan & Coconut Bacon Granola

pb maple pecan coconut bacon granola

This granola was to be the crowning glory on top of one of my Vegan MoFo 2013 recipes, but the base – ice cream – failed.  Not once, but twice.  The third recipe, Peanut Butter Banana “Ice Cream,” worked like a champ, but didn’t call for the extra goodies on top.  This granola stands on its own, so it seemed proper to share it.  

Peanut Butter Maple Pecan Coconut Bacon Granola
Serves 10
Try not to eat this all in one sitting! Thoroughly addictive, this crunchy pb maple pecan coconut bacon granola tastes sublime on your morning oatmeal or on top of non-dairy ice cream.

  1. 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  2. 1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil
  3. 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  4. 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  5. 1 1/2 cups brown rice cereal
  6. 1/2 cups pecans, roughly chopped
  7. 1 cup coconut bacon
  1. Preheat the oven to 275-degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, brown rice cereal, pecans, and coconut bacon. In a saucepan, melt the maple syrup, coconut oil, and peanut butter. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients and stir well to thoroughly coat everything.
  3. Bake the granola for 10 minutes, stir, and return to the oven for an additional 10 minutes. Stir and return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes. In my oven, it takes a total of 40 minutes to get the crispy consistency that I like - your oven may be different - so watch carefully that you don't burn the granola.
  4. Remove from the oven, gently stir, and let cool.

    Ooh this looks so yummy! Peanut butter granola is my favorite. I eat it all the time and I’ve been dying to try some of that coconut bacon!

    My gosh Annie, this is so interesting! I adore the sweet and a little savoury combination so I bet I’ll love the bit of smoky ‘bacon’ flavour! Really need to make the coconut bacon, have been wanting to for so long!!

    This sounds so good! Coconut bacon is one of my favorite things, and I imagine it would be terrific in this salty/sweet combo. Too bad the ice cream didn’t work out. I’ve been loving coconut bacon on vanilla coconut milk ice cream.

    I have never made a fancy granola. I NEED to change that. I can’t recall if I’ve ever even made ANY granola!! This looks wonderful.

  5. coconutandberries

    mmmmm sweet, salty…and PEANUT BUTTER!! Perfect!
    What’s brown rice cereal by the way? Like puffed rice?

    How long does this keep for Annie? I’m wondering if I could make it and ship it as a gift. Thanks! Celeste 🙂

    Yum! I am so happy that the peanut butter recipes are still coming! Haven’t tried coconut bacon yet, looks like I will have to remedy that ASAP! Granola is the bomb.
