Dark chocolate and banana no bake granola
I love making granola and this dark chocolate and banana no bake granola is just simply the bomb!
I have just made this dark chocolate and banana no bake granola, and oh boy…Talk about the perfect snack.
Granted it has some sugar, but a little goes a long way. I like the fact that you don’t have to bake this no bake granola and that it can be done rather quickly.
The only thing with this granola, is that I actually prefer keeping it in the fridge, even though I have done both. If the room temperature gets too high the coconut oil will melt and the granola will get kind of soggy in a way.
I do actually have this by itself, with ice cream, plain yogurt or just mix it in with some other cereal. My kids love it, I even pack it sometime for my kids as a treat for school.
Granola is very versatile so go ahead and omit or substitute any of the ingredients listed. Next time I make it I will try it with different type nuts.
On another note, I have mentioned that I am working on a tofu frosting recipe right? Well, I will keep you posted on that. I just hope it turns out OK because I am a little bit skeptical about using tofu for frosting :-)
You can half the quantities for this granola but because we love granola making big batches is what best works for us :-)
Once you have mixed all of the ingredients in a big bowl place them on a big cookie sheet and let it cool. I actually place my cookie sheet in the fridge to speed up the process and then transfer the granola to an air tight container to store.
