I make a lot of granola. It’s maybe becoming a problem. There are now 4 granola recipes on this little blog, and it’s only 4 months old. Does that mean that in a year there may be 12 recipes for granola here? I won’t lie, it’s possible. And I’m not even sorry.
All of them were just too good not to share. I will say though, that this chocolate peanut butter banana granola is the only one that I was grabbing bits of every time I walked by. Generally I’ll have it with my yogurt in the morning and I’m good. But this? Could not stop eating it. It’s definitely a snack-able granola recipe.
I made this with both peanut butter chips and semi sweet chocolate chips, and I preferred the peanut butter version so that’s how I wrote it up, but if peanut butter isn’t your thing then swap in chocolate chips. The other wonderful thing about this granola, besides its taste? How healthy it is!
This makes about 6 cups of granola and there’s only 3 tablespoons of oil and just under 1/2 a cup of sugar, half of which is maple syrup. And it’s still super crunchy, and sweet enough, at least for me. It isn’t an overly sweet granola though, so if you like your granola sweet you might want to increase the maple syrup by a tablespoon or two.
We all loved this version. What’s your favourite granola? I obviously need more variations!
