This granola is actually so good! Considering there is no oil and it is sweetened with a single banana and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. I just can’t believe how crunchy it was! I was expecting a chewier texture but was pleasantly surprised. This granola was inspired from Diet Girl’s Pretty Darn Healthy Homemade Granola. I just reduced the water, and added flax and coconut instead of the nuts.
What you’ll need:
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup flaxseeds
Preheat oven to 375F. Blend banana, syrup, water, salt and cinnamon. Combine oats, flaxseeds and coconut in a separate bowl. Mix in banana mixture until distributed throughout. Spoon mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet, spread out into a thin, flat sheet. Bake for 40 minutes. Every 10 minutes take out baking pan and break up pieces + flip over. The more you break it up, the more it will brown, and the crunchier it will get! Let cool.
I sprinkled some of the granola clusters on a raspberry-chocolate pudding made from avocado, frozen raspberries and cocoa powder. Yum!
