Ingredients
Dry Ingredients:
  • 2 cups gluten free oats @bobsredmill
  • 2 cups Brown Rice Crisps @wholefoods
  • 2 cups Heritage Flakes cereal @traderjoes
  • 1 1/4 cup dark cocoa bark @traderjoes
  • 2 TBSP Chia Seeds @traderjoes •
Wet Ingredients:
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1/2 cup Avocado Oil @newfoundfoodies
  • 1 cup Organic Peanut Butter @traderjoes
  • 1/3-1/2 cup Honey @wholefoods
  • 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract @costco
  • Sprinkle of sea salt optional
Instructions

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
    Mix all wet ingredients together and bring to a simmer on low heat until mixture thickens.
    Allow the liquid to cool just a tad and pour over dry ingredients. The chocolate will melt if it’s still hot, so if you want to avoid that add chocolate later. 
    Mix all ingredients and place into a large class pan. Spread evenly and flatten. 
    Option to bake for 10-12 minutes. 
    Enjoy!

     

Recipe Notes

Store this in a cool dry place, or place the granola in the fridge for up to two weeks (it stays pretty crispy)!
