Serves: 5
Ingredients
  • 1 banana
  • 5 dates, pitted
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 10g coconut oil (about 1 tsp solid)
  • 200g rolled oats
  • 50g pecans
  • 25g flaked almonds
  • 25g pumpkin seeds
  • 15g sunflower seeds
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 35g raw / good quality dark chocolate, chopped into small chunks
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4.
  2. Make the peanut butter cream by combining the banana, dates, peanut butter and coconut oil in a food processor until smooth. If you don't have a food processor, mashing with a fork will work just as well.
  3. Combine all of the remaining ingredients except the chocolate in a mixing bowl and stir in the peanut butter cream until everything is nicely coated.
  4. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper and spread the granola mixture evenly to form one layer.
  5. Cook for 35 minutes, stirring two or three times throughout to ensure even baking.
  6. Immediately after taking the granola from the oven stir in the chocolate chunks and allow to cool.
  7. Once cooled, store in an airtight container.
Notes
If you have a *really* sweet tooth, stir in 2 tbsp maple syrup or 1 tbsp raw coconut sugar.
