Banana & Sun Butter Granola Clusters

  • 4 cups oats
  • 1/4 cup flax meal (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 very ripe bananas (should be ~1 cup pureed)
  • 1/4 cup natural Sunbutter** 
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup roasted sunflower seeds
  • 3/4 cup golden raisins

Preheat oven to 300°F.

Toss the bananas, sun butter**, and vanilla into a food processor and blend until smooth.  In a large bowl stir together the oats, flax, salt, and nutmeg. Add the banana puree and stir until all of the oats are evenly coated.

Spread the granola on a cookie sheet or two and bake for 60 to 75 minutes at 300°F, until crunchy and slightly golden. Add the roasted sunflower seeds and golden raisins. Enjoy with milk, on yogurt, or by the handful!

** I make the sun butter by roasting double the amount of sunflower seeds and blend half in a food processor with 5 tbs of water to make the paste, generally takes about 5 mintues
