More granola! What can I say? I’m on a granola kick!
This one is adapted from shutterbean’s recipe, found here.

  • 5 cups rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large bowl, toss oats, walnuts, almonds, cinnamon and brown sugar together and set aside. In a small bowl mash bananas and stir in maple syrup & olive oil until thoroughly mixed. Pour wet mixture over the oat-nut mixture and stir until oats are well saturated. Spread the oats on a parchment lined baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes, stirring mixture every 10 minutes until oats are nice & golden.  Let granola cool and transfer to an airtight container.
