Banana & Raisin Granola
3 Cups of Gluten Free Organic Extra Thick Rolled Oats
1 1/4 Cups of Organic No Stir Crunchy Peanut Butter
3 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil, melted
1/4 Cup of Pure Maple Syrup
3/4 teaspoon of Celtic Sea Salt
1 Cup of Organic Dried Banana Chips, broken up a bit
1 1/4 Cups of Organic Raisins
1/2 teaspoon of Ceylon Cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons of Organic Coconut Sugar
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment or silpat
Stir the oats, peanut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, and sea salt with a spatula until combined. Some chunky peanut butter bits stuck together are OK and preferable. Spread the oat mixture onto the baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes turning the pan halfway in between until the oats are lightly golden. ***Cooking time will vary depending on your oven. Don’t over bake, the granola will firm up and crisp upon cooling.
While the granola is baking, measure the banana chips, raisins, cinnamon, and coconut sugar into a medium bowl and toss with a spoon until the banana chips and raisins are lightly dusted with the cinnamon and sugar.
Remove the granola from the oven and cool for 10 minutes on the pan. Then, slide the granola off of the pan with the parchment onto the counter to cool completely. Toss the granola carefully with the raisin mixture and store in an airtight container.
