Banana Granola Gift Recipe

P1020684 Baking up some homemade granola on Gift Style blog Gave That
Sprinkled on top of yogurt, swimming in almond milk, doubling as trail mix after a long bike ride... how I love a good homemade granola loaded with nuts and fruit. Oh yeah, when poured into mason jars they make a yummy gift too! Keep reading for my favorite go to granola:

Making Banana Granola
The secret to the toasty goodness of this granola is the way the banana is enhanced by black strap molasses, sweet honey and warm maple syrup. To make it extra naughty feel free to also toss in some dark chocolate chips or an extra tablespoon of milk chocolate syrup. The later of which is drizzled on before baking. Making this now brings back a lot of happy memories of making big batches with my Mum in the kitchen as gifts.
