Ingredients
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 cups dried banana chips (unsweetened if you can find them)
  • 1 cup nuts (I like a mix of pecans and walnuts)
  • ½ cup ground flaxseeds
  • ¼ cup chia seeds (optional)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300F and line a baking sheet with parchment or silpat.
  2. Crush banana chip and nuts a little bit if they are large pieces.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, crushed banana chips, nuts, ground flax, chia seeds, and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
  4. In a small bowl, combine maple syrup and peanut butter with 2 tbsp of water. Microwave for 20 seconds. Stir to incorporate.
  5. Pour syrup/peanut butter mixture over dry ingredients and stir to evenly coat (this will take a bit of elbow grease and patience).
  6. Once evenly coated, spread granola on prepared baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and sprinkle on chocolate chips. Very gently fold chocolate chips into granola. Let sit on baking sheet until completely cool and chocolate firms up.
  8. Store in an airtight container.
