Happy Friday, y’all! Or are you on the track where you’re truly not sure what day it is like me? If you are, just know you’re not alone. 

Friday always helps cheer me up…and so does granola! I’m a true granola-holic! I find myself sneaking handfuls of it throughout the day and then lo and behold, half of the mason jar full of it is gone! How did that happen!?!

 

But truly, I’ve made quite a few granola recipes here on OBB over the years…I’ve had a few favorites, but nothing has quite perked my spirits like this White Chocolate Blueberry Granola!

It’s so bright in flavor, perfect to ring in Spring, yet it still has that delicious and indulgent melted white chocolate throughout. It’s sweet, but not too sweet. It’s crunchy but you won’t break a tooth, you know? Ha! 

So let’s get into it all! 

What Ingredients Do I Need? 

Hello simple pantry ingredient meal! We all are in need of those right now. This easy granola requires the following: 

  • Rolled oats 
  • White sugar 
  • White chocolate chips 
  • Chia seeds
  • Vanilla extract 
  • Melted butter 
  • Honey 
  • Dried blueberries 

What are some quick substitutions I can make if I don’t have a certain ingredient? 

One thing that I do love about this recipe is how versatile it is! You may not have a bag of dried blueberries sitting in your pantry right now and I totally get that! (Although I do highly recommend buying some from Aldi if you go out to the grocery store soon, so yum and cheap!)

For the blueberries, you can really sub any dried fruit. Do you have dried cranberries leftover from Christmas? Use those! Or maybe you have dried cherries – those would work too! I’m assuming that dried strawberries would work as well.

Maybe you’re out of honey! Use maple syrup instead! Or agave syrup! Any stick-y syrup should do the trick. 

Butter seems to be out of stock anytime I go to the store. You can definitely use melted coconut oil instead – just be aware that it might alter the flavor a bit! 

Best Tips for Making White Chocolate Blueberry Granola:

Make sure that your entire bowl of granola ingredients is equally coated with the butter + honey mixture! This will ensure that it bakes evenly and browns evenly!

Don’t mix in your chocolate chips with the ingredients! Add in the chocolate chips near the end of the baking time. Otherwise, they may be burned! This makes sure that they are perfectly melty and delicious!

After the granola is done baking, let it sit for 10 minutes without touching it! This will produce the  chunks of granola that we all know and love.

How to Eat White Chocolate Blueberry Granola 

One of my favorite ways is to load it in a bowl, add some milk and top with fresh berries! The combination of the fresh berries with the crunchy white chocolate chia seed bits are OUT OF THIS WORLD!

You could also pour this granola on top of plain or vanilla Greek yogurt and drizzle some extra honey on top. 

Lastly, you could just lounge around all day like I’ve been doing lately and eat it by the handful! It’s a great little pick me up mid day snack that will give you some energy and make you feel like you’re eating a treat.

How to Store White Chocolate Blueberry Granola 

After the granola has finished baking and cooled down properly, feel free to put it in a mason jar to store it! Or any tupperware container with a tight lid. I kept mine at room temperature and it lasted for 4-5 days (that’s because I ate it so quickly! HA!)

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 stick melted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup dried blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl, combine your oats, vanilla extract, white sugar, chia seeds, and dried blueberries. Mix together to combine. Add in your melted melted butter and honey and mix until it's fully coated.

  2. Add this mixture in a single layer to a large baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, leaving the granola untouched. Once the 25 minutes are done, take it out and add 1/4 cup of the white chocolate chips. Mix in to the granola gently. Bake for an additional 3-5 minutes. 

  3. Once done, take the baking sheet out of the oven. While it's cooling on the pan, add the other 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips on top. Let this mixture cool for about 10 minutes. Eat with cereal, top yogurt bowls or just eat this by the handful as a snack! Store in a tightly sealed jar at room temperature for 1 week.

    I’ve definitely been eating my fair share of homemade granola, and this one looks like a must try. I don’t have dried blueberries, but think I have some cranberries or raisins. Also love that you added chia seeds! And hello white chocolate!!

    1. Thank you so much, Leanne! I’ve been eating a lot of granola too! It’s so simple and delicious to make with pantry ingredients! Hope you and your hubby are well 🙂
