Whether in muffins or in cereal, bananas and almonds pair perfectly.
Serving Size : Make 16 Cups(1/2)
Prep Time: 15 Mins
Cook Time: 55 Mins
8 cups Rolled Oats
2 cups Chopped Dates
1 cup Slivered Almonds
2 ripe Bananas chopped
1 tsp Almond Extract
1 tsp salt
1- Preheat the oven to 275°F.
2- Add the oats to a large bowl and set aside. Line two 13 × 18-inch baking sheets with parchment paper.
3- Bring 1 cup of water to a boil with the dates in a medium saucepan. Cook for 10 minutes over medium heat. If necessary, add more water to keep the dates from adhering to the pan.
4- Remove the pan from the heat and puree the mixture with the bananas, almond extract, and salt in a blender. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
5- Add the date mixture to the oats and mix well. Divide the granola between the two prepared baking sheets and spread out evenly.
6- Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, or until granola is crunchy. Remove from the oven and let aside to cool before slicing the almonds (if using). (As the cereal cools, it will become more crispier.)
