So the story behind this granola starts with bananas, specifically ripe bananas.. (a hard thing to come across if you live in the UK and eat as many bananas as I do!) .. anyways, for the first time probably ever in my life I had too many ripe bananas and I was thinking what to do with them..


Because our freezer is already overloaded with bananas I thought I would bake some into a snack of some sort, so I went about rummaging around our cupboards for any spare ingredients whatsoever.

All I could find was flour, muesli and desiccated coconut so I thought I would bake some cookies, but it turned out all we had was 1 tbsp of flour and 3 tbsp of muesli, so the mixture was waaaay too wet and crumbly to form any cookie, so instead I went about making granola..

And you know what? It turned out pretty damn great.




  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  • Mash the banana with a fork and mix with all the dry ingredients
  • Add any extras you wish
  • Spread the granola out on a baking tray evenly, and bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, until golden. Make sure to take the granola out every 10 minutes and move it around a little so that it gets evenly baked!
  • Leave to cool and then ENJOY (it won’t last long!)

This is so so so easy and simple, yet it is a really nice granola because it is not overly sweet with sugar and not full of oil (like so many shop bought cereals). I love it and will definitely be making this again! Let me know how it turns out, I love hearing from you guys!
