Banana and Almond Granola Clusters
– 1 cup of almonds
– 1/2 a cup of walnuts
– 1 cup of oats
– 1/2 a cup of sunflower seeds
– 1/2 a cup of pumpkin seeds
– 1/2 cup of flaxseeds
– 3 very ripe bananas
– 2 tablespoons of manuka honey
– 2 tablespoons of almond butter
For my favourite smoothie bowl:
– 1 ripe banana
– 1/2 a cup each of blueberries, strawberries and raspberries
– 1 handful of spinach
– 1 tablespoon of almond milk or water
Start by pre-heating the oven to 190C. Then place all the dry ingredients into a bowl.
In a separate bowl place the peeled bananas and mash them with a fork, before adding the honey and almond butter. Stir the three ingredients together so that they form a sticky paste.
Pour the paste over the dry ingredients mixing everything together so that the whole mixture sticks together. Then place this mixture onto a piece of baking paper on a baking tray and put it in the oven. Allow to bake for about 25 minutes, until the clusters start to brown a little and become firm. Although half way through it’s best to take the tray out and stir them around a bit, otherwise the whole thing will stick together in one giant cluster!
Then allow to cool and store in an air tight container, enjoy!
