Peanut Butter Granola Snack Cake

Satisfying and dense, this cake is crowned with a granola-based topping that melts and increases in crunchiness as it bakes, turning into a cookie-like shell. Peanut butter, cake, cookie—get all your cravings satisfied in a single bite.

Note: Do not use natural peanut butter as it will negatively affect the texture of the cake. Use your preferred brand and type of granola in this recipe.
