Banana and coconut is a wonderful flavour combination, and when you add honey and oats into the mix, it makes for a dreamy banana granola that’s far simpler and quicker to prepare than you might think.
It’s also far healthier than most packet cereals and comes in at a fraction of the cost of shop-bought granola, so why not give this easy and truly delicious recipe a go?
Homemade coconut and banana granola
Banana and coconut granola made with honey and coconut oil. Takes minutes to prepare and tastes great!
- 250g (9 oz) jumbo oats
- 50g (2 oz) banana chips, roughly broken into 1-2cm pieces
- 25g (1 oz) coconut chunks or dried slithers
- 6 tbsp runny honey
- 2 tbsp olive oil, coconut oil or sunflower oil (plus a little for greasing)
- Preheat the oven to 180C (160C fan assisted). In a bow, mix all of the ingredients together until evenly combined.
- Press the mix into a greased tray. The idea with this granola is to get nice clusters at the end.
- Bake for 15-20 until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely, then break up into 1-2.5cm pieces. Store in an airtight container to keep it fresh.
I like mine with yoghurt and a little fresh fruit, but it’s equally delicious with a splash of ice cold milk. How will you eat yours?
