Banana Bread Granola

There is so much more you can do with super ripe bananas than make banana bread... Why not instead make the absolute best-tasting granola you’ve ever had? With all the flavour of the pandemic’s favourite loaf, it also offers an epic crunch and beautiful chunky clusters.

How to Make it

  • Preheat your oven to 135°C (275°F).
  • Mix together the oats, pecans, and flaxseed in a large bowl.
  • Blend together the banana, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and peanut butter in a jug with a hand blender (or in a blender or food processor) until smooth.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well to combine.
  • Place on a baking paper lined tray and spread out evenly.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, remove, and break up into clusters and chunks. It will still be pretty undercooked except for around the edges.
  • Carefully give everything a mix up once you’ve broken it up and then return to the oven for a further 25 minutes, tossing carefully once or twice so it evenly cooks. It should be crisp to the touch, but will become crisper as it cools on the tray.
  • Once cool, store in a tightly sealed container or jar. Will last for a couple of weeks out of direct sunlight.
