Almond Butter Banana Bread Granola {gf,v}

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

Are you ready to meet the chunkiest granola ever? Better be because this is it! Granola is one of those foods that never gets old, and it comes in handy for so many things. I love making my own granola because it doesn't break the bank, and I know there are no sneaky ingredients thrown in. This granola is full of nutrient-dense, delicious ingredients, such as fresh banana, creamy almond butter, hearty oats, crunchy walnuts, spices, and much more. This is one of my new fave recipes because it tastes just like a slice of banana bread! It's also super simple to make, and it only requires a blender or food processor. This way of making homemade granola is not only easy and fast, but it gives the granola the perfect crunch. Prep time is only 5 minutes or less and bake time is only about 25 minutes! What more could you ask for? Not to mention, this is gluten free and vegan friendly.
