Banana Granola

A tasty granola recipe that smells like banana bread



10-12 tablespoons porridge oats

3-4 tablespoons nuts of your choice (almonds, walnuts, cashews, etc.)

2-3 tablespoons seeds of your choice (linseed, chia, sesame, etc.)

1-2 tablespoons cacao nibs (optional)

1 teaspoon sweet mixed spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, etc.)

1 banana

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon vanilla essence


Step 1: Put porridge oats, nuts, seeds, cacao nibs and spices in mixing bowl. Mix well. 


Step 2: Mash banana with a fork.  Mix with olive oil, honey and vanilla essence. 


Step 3: Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix everything together well. 


Step 4: Spread mixture in a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Bake in oven preheated to 160 c for 15 minutes. Then reduce heat to 110 c and bake for a further 30 minutes. 


Step 5: Take granola out of oven and allow to cool. Then break into pieces and store in a container. 


Step 6: Enjoy some granola for breakfast. I like to have it with berries and yogurt.
