Vegan Banana Granola

I think bananas are possibly my most used ingredient. You can just do so much with them, plus they taste incredible and add so much delicious sweetness to things. I also love granola so it was really only a matter of time before banana granola became a thing. Now, I think this may be my favourite granola ever, so much so that since creating this recipe a good few months ago I've constantly had a jar filled with it in the house, baking up big batches when it runs out to keep me going. I really just can't get enough, sometimes I even eat it out of the jar with a spoon because it's that good.

Vegan Banana Granola

You will need (makes one large jar): 
2 1/2 cups jumbo oats 
1/2 cup almonds 
1/2 cup pecans 
1 very ripe banana 
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons maple syrup 
1 cup sultanas (optional) 

Method: 
- Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. 
- Roughly chop the almonds and pecans using a food processor. 
- Add the oats, chopped nuts and seeds to a large bowl and mix together. 
- Mash the banana using a fork and combine this with the maple syrup in a small bowl. Mix until a smooth liquid forms. 
- Add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well, ensuring that everything is coated. 
- Split the mixture between two lined baking trays and bake in the oven for around 20 minutes, stirring halfway, until the granola is golden brown and crunchy. 
- Leave to cool and then mix through the sultanas if you are adding these.
