Banana Coconut Granola

I love granola y’all! My friends make fun of me and anyone who knows me well knows there’s a 99% chance that I’ll order whatever has granola on the menu at brunch.

I have been working hard to create a granola recipe that I absolutely love and want to make over and over again and I think I’ve finally done it. I call this Dreamy Banana Coconut Granola because it seriously is dreamy! It is so addictive and makes the perfect snack or topper.

The secret ingredient to this granola is the melted banana that you pour over the mix before making it…it gives the granola the most amazing natural sweetness. That with a little maple syrup is a delicious combo- no refined sugar necessary. This granola is filled with goodness such as chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, and coconut oil- good and good for you!

The baking process is pretty simple and it will leave you with a big batch of granola you can store for a long time and use every day if you want to! After it is baked, it should come out a nice, light golden-brown color. The coconut flakes and nuts will be toasted nicely and have a great crunch!

It can be used on anything!

My favorite thing to do with this gluten-free banana coconut granola other than eat it straight is to top it on smoothies, smoothie bowls, yogurt, etc. It makes a great gift as well!
