Homemade Granola Butter

Turn your favorite granola into a creamy spread! This granola butter is delicious on toast or crackers, paired with your favorite fruits, or enjoyed by the spoonful.

I love all types of nut butter, from almond butter to peanut butter. One of my favorites is this vanilla spice walnut butter! If I’m eating an apple, I usually dip my slices in almond butter. If I’m making a bowl of oatmeal, I top it with a drizzle of peanut butter. If I’m making cookies, I’m always trying to find a way to add in some peanut butter or cashew butter! But have you heard of granola butter?

What is Granola Butter?

Granola butter is made from ingredients you’d typically find in granola, but turned into a nut butter type of spread! You can actually buy it from Ali at Kween and Co.  Her granola butter is really good, and she has lots of great flavors, so I definitely recommend that if you aren’t looking to make it at home.  But I wanted to see if I could take a bag of my favorite granola, blend it for a while, and get a similar result!  And it turns out, you can! 

This is a fun way to repurpose your favorite granola, and it’s a great nut-free spread (as long as your granola doesn’t contain nuts!), so it’s perfect for anyone with allergies.

Ingredients and Substitutions

Granola– I’ve tested this recipe with Michela’s Granola and Cascadian Farms granola and both worked great! I recommend using one that is primarily oat based. If there are mix-ins like chocolate or dried fruit, it’ll be harder to get a smooth consistency.

Coconut oil– A little melted coconut oil helps create a smooth texture and makes it easier for your blender or food processor to blend the granola. You’ll need to adjust the amount based on the texture of your granola. You could substitute avocado oil or vegetable oil in place of coconut oil.

How to Make Granola Butter

Add the granola and coconut oil to your blender or food processor. Blend for 2-3 minutes, scraping down the sides every 30 seconds.

You may need to add more oil depending on the texture of your granola. The granola butter will have a slightly crunchy texture.

How to Use Granola Butter

Enjoy spreading this granola butter onto sandwiches or toast with your favorite jam. This is also a great dip for strawberries, bananas, apple slices, pretzels, or graham crackers. You can also drizzle it on top of your next smoothie bowl or enjoy it by the spoonful!

Let me know what flavors you come up with I’d love to try more!

How to Store Granola Butter

Store the granola butter in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:

  • a microwave safe bowl to melt the coconut oil
  • a food processor
