How to make peppermint white chocolate granola:

Preheat the oven

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Combine dry ingredients

Combine the oats, puffed rice and vanilla protein powder in a bowl and whisk together. 

Add the wet ingredients

Melt the coconut oil and add to the bowl of dry ingredients. Add the syrup, peppermint extract and stir together so everything is evenly coated. 

Bake

Spread the granola onto a parchment lined baking sheet so that there are no large clumps with a lot of spaces between the granola. This will help it dry out while baking. Bake for 15 minutes, remove and mix up the granola. Place back in the oven for 2-6 minutes, checking every couple minutes to ensure you do not burn the granola and remove once it is dry and crumbly. 

Sprinkle to white chocolate chips over the top and place back in the oven for 2-6 minutes, checking every couple minutes to ensure you do not burn the granola and remove once it is dry and crumbly. Let the granola cook on the baking dish so the chocolate sticks to the pieces. 

Enjoy!

Break into chunks and enjoy your peppermint white chocolate granola!
