Banana Bread Granola w./ Cinnamon

Everything a granola should be if you are a banana bread lover. Full of flavour and texture then baked until crispy and golden.

If you follow me on Instagram you will know I take breakfast very seriously and granola plays a big part in my morning routine. On top of that I’m a huge Banana bread lover so naturally, I had to find a way to incorporate it into my first meal aside from a loaf.

Whip it up in a few simple steps and let the oven work it’s magic whilst filling your kitchen with the mouthwatering aromas of banana, coconut and cinnamon. It keeps well in a glass jar so don’t shy away from making a huge batch to keep for the following month.

Banana Bread Granola w./ Cinnamon 

Makes 400g 

Ingredients

250g oats

50g desiccated coconut 

120g walnuts

1 banana, the browner the better

4 tbsp coconut oil 

2 tbsp maple syrup 

2 tbsp coconut sugar 

2 tsp cinnamon 

1 tsp vanilla essence 

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C.
  2. In a bowl big enough to fit all of your ingredients mash the banana with a fork. Then add the melted coconut oil and maple syrup and stir.
  3. Now add your dry ingredients; the oat flakes, walnuts and desiccated coconut. Stir once more with a spoon until everything is covered in your banana mixture.
  4. Transfer your mixture evenly onto a pre-lined baking sheet and place into the preheated oven.
  5. Bake for a total of 18 minutes. Turn the granola with a spoon after 10 minutes and let it bake for the remaining 8 minutes keeping an eye on it as it can quickly turn too dark.
  6. Let the granola cool fully where it will get deliciously crisp and golden. Then add some dried banana crisps before transferring them into an airtight glass jar to store.
