3 Ingredient Late-Night Granola


  • 10 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 4 bananas
  • ½ cup whole flax seeds (optional)


  • 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.
