Super Crunchy Banana Peanut Butter Granola

I am slightly obsessed with crunchy things.

I am also obsessed with all things peanut butter, which I am actually trying to kick because of the dangerous mold aflatoxin that grows like wildflower on peanuts. (corn too) Like any addiction it is not an easy one to just stop cold turkey.  Plus I probably didn’t make it any easier by making this fabulous granola.

It is chunky and nutty and ridiculously easy to make.  It is the perfect topping on everything.  This is also “sugar free” except for the banana and also fat free because I used peanut flour which helps sneak in some protein.  Basically this is the perfect granola, so go make it now.

Ingredients:

2 cups rolled oats

1/4 peanut flour or PB2 prepared

1 banana

1/2 cup water

up to 1/4 cup sugar free maple syrup- depending on your taste

2 tsp cinnamon

*optional add ins, 1/4 cup raisins, 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees

- Blend everything but the oats.  Toss mixture and the oats.  Lay on baking sheet- don’t spread it thin leave it chunky for the super crunch factor.

-Bake 15-20 minutes till just starting to brown- make sure to turn it at least once.

Big crunchy nutty balls ;) — “that’s what she said“.  Sorry I just had to- he’s my idol.

      well unfortunately it’s basically splenda with other chemicals. If you prefer something more natural I would go with the real thing, or lite syrup. & Thanks I know how you feel!
