Some people rescue animals, others foster children and many try to do their best when it comes to caring for our planet. I’m definitely a firm member of team food rescue!! I hope you’ve figured out by now that I can’t stand food waste.
A supermarket trip recently saw me pick up a large amount of very overripe bananas going for easily a fifth of their usual price!! Then, along came a few batches of banana bread, more bananas went into the freezer for future creations and along came the inspiration for this gem of a granola recipe.
I’m a bit of a ritual person when it comes to mornings. My weekday breakfast wouldn’t change massively apart from the fruit with the seasons but otherwise granola and yoghurt or milk are constants!
- 1 overripe banana
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 2 tbsp melted coconut or rapeseed oil
- 350g oats
- 40g desiccated coconut
- 40g seeds
- 40g nuts
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- Optional: 1 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/400°F.
- In a large mixing bowl, mash the banana together with the peanut butter and oil until you get a smooth paste.
- Stir all the remaining ingredients through the wet mix until no dry oats remain.
- Spread the granola mix on a baking tray or ovenproof dish and bake in the oven for 25 minutes, stir regularly to ensure an even golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and allow the granola to fully cool before storing in a resealable jar or container.
