Healthy PB Banana Bread Granola (DF, GF)

I make banana bread nearly every week so I decided to switch things up and make granola!

Well…pb banana bread granola.

I can’t resist the flavor combination!

But, who can?

Banana, walnuts, chocolate, peanut butter…there’s nothing better!

And can we just talk about these clusters?!

I think I’ve died and gone to heaven…oh nevermind, I’m just three handfuls in…

Healthy PB Banana Bread Granola

Ingredients:

PB granola base-

  • 2 1/2 cups gluten-free quick oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pink salt
  • 2/3 cups all-natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Banana Bread add in’s-

  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 3/4 cup dried banana slices or banana chips
  • 1/3 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chunks

How to make…

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Step 2: In a medium bowl combine the oats, cinnamon, and pink salt. Set aside.

Step 3: On low heat in a large saucepan mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Let melt until smooth. Remove from heat, and add the dry ingredients.

Step 4: Once all the wet and dry ingredients are combined firmly pat down the granola onto a greased (or lined) cookie sheet.

Step 5: Bake for 10 minutes. Take it out and gently stir/flip the granola over leaving some pieces in large clusters. Then bake for an additional 8-10 minutes until golden brown.

Step 6: Let cool for at least 30 minutes to allow the granola to harden.

Step 7: In a large mixing bowl combine the walnuts, chocolate, and dried banana slices. Add in the granola. (Gently mix together without breaking up the clusters.)

Make sure to store your PB Banana Bread Granola in an airtight container on your counter and enjoy!!
