Crunchy Banana Chip Granola

This morning I took a bit of some Banana Granola that my sister and I made on Sunday night and threw it on some Vanilla yogurt and added a few chopped strawberries. I am LOVING this granola.

I can’t take credit for the idea of this granola because it was maggie who came home with the banana chips and idea. I was the recipe behind the operation and really just snapped pics while I told her what to do next. We really just took the recipe for My Crunchy Granola, and put a banana twist on it…Every time I look at that post it makes me think about my near brush with T-swift…and by near I mean my sisters brush with T-swift.

Banana Chip Granola

Ingredients:

5 Cups Old Fashioned Oats 1/2 Cup Sliced Almonds
1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts 1/2 Cup Chopped Banana Chips
1/3 Cup Pepitas 1/3 Cup Flaxseed Meal
1 1/4 Teaspoons Cinnamon 3/4 Teaspoon Salt
3/4 Cup Agave Nectar 1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients.

2. In a small bowl, combine the Agave Nectar and the Olive Oil. Then, pour the wet mix into the dry mix and stir until everything is evenly coated.

3. Spread out the granola mix on 2 cookie sheets making a thin layer.

4. Bake for 15 minutes. Take the pan out and flip the granola on the inside to the outside of the pan and visa versa. The outside oats will cook faster than the inside and you do NOT want this to burn. Bake it for an additional 10 minutes while keeping an eye on it.

Once the granola is golden brown throughout, it is finished. Let the pan completely cool before packaging it into anything or else it won’t crisp up nicely. As soon as it is completely cool, you will notice the crunchy texture we all love 🙂

YUMMY. This recipe makes a TON of granola, so you don’t have to worry about buying any for a while. I actually really prefer the home-made granola over store-bought because it has such a unique flavor. It really trumps anything you can find in the stores.

 

What is your favorite flavor of granola and how do you like eating it??
