Banana Granola

I have a thing for homemade granola.  And it’s catching on.  I used to be the only family member to eat it, but now it has become a favorite of everybody.  It is so simple and easy.  Check out this post for 10 reasons to make your own granola. 


This is a slightly different version of my previous recipe.  But it is still oh so good!  Eat it with cereal, alone, over ice cream, in yogurt…it is good anywhere!

I used a recipe from Cybele Pascal’s The Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook as a loose guide.  I really encourage you to use the coconut sugar.  It is an unrefined sweetener and makes this granola just that much better taste wise and a smidge healthier. 

Who is in for making their own granola?  Let me know!
