3 Ingredient Late-Night Granola

What You'll Need


10 cups old-fashioned oats

4 bananas

½ cup whole flax seeds (optional)


How to Make It


1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2 In a large mixing bowl, combine 10 cups old-fashioned oats and flax seeds (optional - the flax seeds give an added crunch and taste, but are not necessary).

3 Peel and blend four bananas in blender until smooth and creamy.

4 Pour banana mixture onto oat-flax blend and stir well to combine.

5 Divide the mixture between two baking sheets, put in oven and set timer for 20 minutes.

6 For extra-crunchy granola: when the timer goes off, simply turn off the oven and leave the granola inside on the baking trays for a few hours to cool down and get nice and crunchy.

7 To serve, top a bowl of the granola with your favorite fruit and plant-based milk of your choice (my favorite combo is the “orange julius” - ½ banana, ½ orange, some blueberries thrown in, and some almond milk).

8 The granola can be stored for a week or longer in an airtight container.
