This is a lovely granola recipe that you can make with your loved ones as it is fun to make, rewarding and incredibly easy to put together!
The reason why I love this granola so much is mainly because of all the different textures and flavours that marry together to create the perfect bite. Anyone ever try cinnamon toast crunch cereal as a child? I used to love those! In a way I feel I’ve recreated the flavour only because of three main ingredients; the salt, cinnamon, and syrup. The type of salt you add in here should be of high quality. The granules should be large and it’s always good to use sea salt. The salt against the sweetest of the syrup, banana and cinnamon flavour is one of my favourite combinations. Another key ingredient in this recipe is the puffed buckwheat that I’m using. It’s not necessary to use puffed buckwheat, but anything puffed will do, be it quinoa or rice. I should also probably mention the type of oats that would be great in this recipe as you don’t want your oats mushy or too small. Large jumbo rolled oats work best here, not those wimpy tiny oat flakes! The banana is a nice touch as it adds that banana cake vibe to the mix, especially the added cocoa nibs and raisins in the very end.
