Vegan | No added Sugar | Gluten Free Options
I’m going through a granola phase. Instead of making a 5 minute stove top granola, I spent the time making a big batch of Banana Nut Granola.
It’s clumpy, nutty and has no added sugars. It’s sweetened only with 3 ripe bananas which give it the perfect amount of sweetness for me. If you’re looking to cut down on sugar as much as possible, then make sure to use a peanut butter that doesn’t have sugar added to it – that’s what I chose, and I didn’t feel like it was missing anything. If you like your granola on the sweeter side, you can add a tablespoon or two of honey or maple syrup.
It makes about 7 cups of granola which keeps well at room temperature in a sealed container; which means it can last a few weeks… or a day depending on your level of snackage.
Other ideas to alter the recipe without changing it is to use almonds or walnuts instead of pecans; and to use chocolate chips instead of the cacao nibs. If you’re using chocolate chips, make sure the granola has cooled down completely before adding them, so they don’t melt.
