Delicious chunks of oats, puffed kamut, almonds, raisins with an awesome peanut buttery taste.. and almost NO FAT. I’m a proud girl. I have read probably 100 recipes for fat free homemade granola and got a general idea of how to concoct this stuff. Then, I decided to wing it.
What I ended up with was most amazing on my Greek yogurt this morning and it’s got extra protein too. Who needs to buy packaged granola?! Not this chica! This was so easy – took me 5 minutes to throw together and only about 10 to bake.
(Almost) Fat Free Protein Peanut Butter Granola
- 1 1/2 C rolled oats
1 C puffed kamut (or other puffed grain)
1/3 C sliced almonds
1/2 C vanilla protein powder
2 Tbsp peanut flour (or PB2)
2 Tbsp flax meal
1/4 C unsweetened applesauce
3 Tbsp agave nectar (or honey)
1 Tbsp vanilla
1/4 C raisins
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with silpat or parchment paper.
In medium bowl, mix oats, puffed grain, almonds, protein powder and peanut flour well. Stir in vanilla and agave.
In a separate, small bowl, add 3 Tbsps water to flax and stir. Let sit for several minutes to thicken. Once thickened, add applesauce, agave and vanilla. Pour this mixture over oat mixture and stir until clumps form.
Spread on prepared baking sheet and bake, stirring every 3-4 minutes for about 10 minutes total or until just beginning to crisp.
Allow to cool and stir in raisins. Store in an air tight (tupperware) container.

I’m a big fan of the nutritional info too.. considering most store-bought granolas are much higher in fat and sodium. A few tablespoons of it on my yogurt definitely powered me through a tough chest/tri/cardio workout this morning.. enjoy!
