Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a medium sized baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, slivered almonds, cashews, shredded coconut, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Stir together.
  3. Add the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla and almond extracts. Stir everything together again.
  4. Transfer the granola mixture to the prepared baking sheet. Use a mixing spoon or your hands to gently press the granola down into one even layer.
  5. Bake in the oven for 28-35 minutes, without stirring the granola. It will be ready when the granola is golden brown and super fragrant.
  6. Let the granola cool to room temperature, then use your hands to gently break it up into large clusters. Stir in the chocolate chips and banana chips.

Notes

Storing granola

Granola will stay fresh for several weeks if stored in an airtight container in the fridge. I prefer to use a wider, shallow container instead of a jar for granola because it helps keep the large clusters intact.

Can you freeze granola? Yes! To make granola last even longer, you can freeze it for up to three months. Pack it into a freezer safe storage container or freezer bag leaving as little air as possible.
