Plant Base Banana Granola

This granola recipe is sugar free and delicious! I am not much of a fan of granola because it is usually way too sweet and most granolas have sugar, honey or agave nectar. This recipe uses bananas and dates to make it sweet so you get all the fiber and the sweetness. It is also really light but hearty enough to get you through a busy morning.

Ingredients:
2 cups oats
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans
2 Tbsp chia seeds
4 Dates
2 ripe, mashed bananas
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla

Mix the bananas, dates, and water in a blender. Mix all other ingredients in a large bowl. Pour banana mixture over the dry ingredient. Spread evenly on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. Bake at 350 for ten minutes. Stir and spread evenly again. Repeat 10 minute intervals, stirring and resmoothing until mixture is golden brown and dry. About 50 minutes all together.
