Banana Bread Granola
I keep homemade granola on hand as a regular breakfast option. Sometimes the same old recipe can get old and I had a bag full of bananas in my freezer that had ripened past their prime. When I ran across this recipe, I knew I needed to try it - and soon. I was searching for a cool summer morning to bake it and when it came I was wow'd by the simple pleasure of this granola.

  1. 6 c rolled oats
  2. 1 1/2 c chopped walnuts
  3. 1 c pecans (I used almonds because it was what I had)
  4. 1 t salt
  5. 1 T cinnamon
  6. 2 T flax meal
  7. 1/2 c coconut oil
  8. 2/3 c maple syrup
  9. 2 t vanilla
  10. 2 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Warm the coconut oil on a low temp burner and add syrup and vanilla.
  3. Remove from heat and add the mashed banana.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry.
  5. Spread out on a couple jelly roll pans covered with parchment paper.
  6. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes or until browned. Scootch it after about 10 mins if you don't want granola clumps.
  1. I prefer to eat this with just a bit of milk, but sometimes frozen blueberries are the perfect addition. The kids like it with slightly sweetened plain yogurt.
