Healthy Reese's Granola

Healthy Reese's (like) Granola

  • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal
  • 1 cup toasted coconut flakes (I used natural unsweetened, it already has a crunch to it)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (dark chocolate or sugar free)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1-2 scoops protein powder (I use vanilla)
  • 1 cup rice crispies
  • 1 Tbs. Cocoa Powder

Put all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix.  Put peanut butter, honey and coconut oil in a microwavable bowl and heat for 30 - 60 seconds. Then incorporate it all together. Pour out into a 9x9 pan and press. Refrigerate. 
It tends to fall apart pretty easy so I usually end up putting it into a ziplock bag after it cools. 

I'm addicted to this stuff. To me it tastes like Reese peanut butter cup cereal which I love. But oh so much healthier.
