Granola is so easy to make that I don't know why I don't make it more often. I've already shared my Cranberry Granola and Pumpkin Chocolate Granola recipes, so now it's time for me to share this wonderful Banana Crunch Granola recipe. Unlike my other granola recipes, this one requires you to add the ingredient in stages. No big deal but you do need to monitor things so you don't burn the granola.
I also decided to crunch the banana chips up a bit so some of the pieces would be the size of some of the chopped walnuts. The recipe calls for, and I used shredded coconut but you can also use coconut flakes if you have it on it. The beauty about these granola recipes is you can add, subtract or modify as you see fit. You really can't go wrong. I'm actually thinking of adding some dried cranberries or craisins next time for a little bit of sour.
