Description

Crunchy and delicious banana Nutella granola is so easy to make!


Ingredients

  • 3 and 3/4 cups (300g) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup (60g) ground flax*
  • 1 cup (100g) sliced almonds (or any nut)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana (1 very large banana)
  • 1/4 cup (75g) Nutella
  • 1/4 cup (82g) pure maple syrup (or honey; if you prefer sugar-free maple syrup, that would work as well)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (about 30) banana chips
  • optional: 1/2 cup (90g) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, flax, almonds, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the mashed banana, Nutella, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt together. Allow to bubble for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and pour over the dry ingredients. Stir it all together until all of the oats are moistened.
  4. Spread the oats on the baking sheet in a thin even layer. Bake for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and stir. Bake for another 15-20 minutes until lightly browned. Top the granola with chocolate chips and banana chips. Gently stir. The chocolate will melt, creating larger chunks of granola.
  5. Allow granola to cool completely; it will harden and crunch up as it is exposed to air. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.

Notes

  1. Flax: Adding ground flax is optional. If you do not care to use it, add 1/4 cup more oats.
  2. Gluten Free: Granola is Gluten Free if using certified gluten free oats.
