Coconut Crunch Granola [yields ~ 1 1/2 c]
1 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 ripe banana
1/2 – 1 tsp coconut or vanilla extract
1 cup oats
2 tbsp unsweetened dried shredded coconut
1. Pre-heat oven to 325F.
2. Mash the banana super well until there are no chunks.
3.Add the peanut butter. Melt the mixture. 35 second in the microwave works, but I usually do it for a minute or two on the stove top. Mix it very thoroughly.
3.Pour over the oats, and add the extract and shredded coconut.
4.Mix until oats are completely covered.
5.Spread evenly on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
6.Bake until it starts to slightly brown, and stir about two-three times. For my oven it was 15 minutes, but I always need to bake longer than most recipes suggest, so I’d recommend 7-10 minutes. Make sure to keep an eye on it.
7. Let it cool and get crunchy before storing in an air-tight container.
