Homemade Chewy Fruit Granola!

This is my first time at trying out granola, i have always wanted to have a go at it but been a bit scared, i always assumed i’d just burn it and it would be a waste of time!

I’m so glad i braved it in the end as it came out ok and is super yummy!

Chewy fruit granola.

2 cups oats,

1 ripe banana,

3/4 cup water,

2 tbsp honey,

1tsp cinnamon,

1tsp vanilla,

1/4 tsp sea salt,

1/4 cup mixed dried fruit.

Method.

1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees. Blitz banana, water, honey, cinnamon, vanilla and salt in a blender/food processor.

2. In a big bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Then add the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.

3. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and spread out the mixture onto it.

4. Pop into the oven for around 30 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy on the outside.

NOTE: My mixture was extremely wet which is why it came out rather chewy and stuck together unlike regular granola but i love it this way. Adapt to suit your tastes and make the mixture how you want it.

I have stored mine in a jar and have been enjoying it many ways! Because it is so chewy and fruity, it makes a great snack when craving sweets. It’s great on it own with milk or with yogurt and fruit.

Question: Have you ever braved granola?
