Servings: 4 cups
Preparation Time: 40 minutes
- 3 medjool dates, pitted
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 1/2 bananas
- 1 cup millet
- 1/2 cup flaked unsweetened coconut
- 1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
- 1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 325 F.
Place dates and water in a small food processor and process until it is a smooth paste. Add the banana to the food processor and process with the dates until it reaches the consistency of baby food.
In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Add the date and banana mixture, and stir or use your hands to completely coat all ingredients.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or grease lightly. Pour the oat mixture onto the baking sheet and spread into an even layer.
Bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Watch the granola carefully after 20 minutes of baking so that it does not burn.
