TROPICAL VEGAN GRANOLA

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.

Ingredients: 

Method: 

  • 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!
