Easy Vegan Banana Bread Granola

This is my new favourite recipe! It's the perfect dish to start or even end your day with. Whip up a batch when your bananas are soft enough to mush up. I made two batches a couple of weekends ago for some friends birthdays and placed them into mason jars. Click here for the original recipe however I've listed it below with my modifications.

  • 3 cups rolled old-fashioned oats (can also use gluten-free oats)
  • 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts

  4. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients
