Here’s how I see it – One can never have too many granola recipes. It is absolutely necessary to have a different granola recipe for every season, every mood, every craving.
Lets say the leaves are changing colours and fall is approaching, well it is obviously time to whip up a batch of pumpkin granola. Spring approaches and you want something a bit lighter, quinoa granola to the rescue. And for the simple, classic, but always delicious, our basic granola recipe is here to help you out. So what happens when you’re craving banana bread, but don’t feel like baking up a whole loaf? Make a batch of granola instead!
This granola has all the elements of your classic banana bread rolled into an oat and nut filled crunchy cereal. Perfect for sprinkling over some yogurt, drowning in some milk, or simply eating by the spoonful.
I’ve left the almonds and walnuts whole in this recipe for two reasons:
1. I love the crunch and texture they add
2. I am lazy
But if you’d prefer them chopped, then chop away.
And if you normally take your banana bread with a handful of chocolate chips thrown in, well I think this granola wouldn’t object to that addition. I think banana bread season is upon us.
