Oil-Free Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Granola

Every now and again I get inspired to make granola. There is just something better about homemade granola than store bought. Perhaps it is the satisfaction of having made it yourself, perhaps it’s the smell that fills the kitchen as it crisps up in the oven or the fact that it's significantly cheaper than buying a bag of good quality stuff. Homemade just seems more delicious. When did my love for granola begin? I have no idea. I never had it as a kid, and I don’t really remember having it until I was in my 20’s. But once I tasted it, I knew it was a good thing. And I ate plenty of it! Mmmmm, so delicious!



Today, I have a super easy, but delicious recipe for this vegan oil-free chocolate chunk banana bread granola. All the flavours of banana bread, in a clusters of sweet, cinnamony, chocolatey, crunchy oats. This granola is indulgent but it isn’t especially sweet. Granted, the chocolate make it taste more like a glorified dessert, but I'm fine with that. Everyone needs a little chocolate for breakfast.



I’ve wanted to make banana bread granola for ages, but I usually make my granolas with oil. However, on the TV they used the bananas in lieu of butter/oil and it still turned out looking like perfect granola. So, I started experimenting and this was my final result! Think of this super minimal granola recipe as a great introduction to the vast and delicious world of homemade granola. It’s a world of endless possibilities and really long ingredient lists, so this 9-ingredient recipe is here to bring everything down to earth for a second. This granola gives off some solid chocolate banana bread vibes, and can easily be customized to meet all your granola needs. Mashed bananas and maple syrup act as the glue that creates those irresistible granola clusters and eliminates the need for any oil in this recipe.
