My new favorite homemade granola!  It’s so yummy topped with frozen berries, sliced bananas and some almond milk.  (recipe inspiration from I Heart Wellness)

4 cups Organic Quick Oats

2 medium (grated) Carrots

4 tsp Cinnamon

2 tsp Nutmeg

1/2 tsp Sea Salt

1/2 cup nuts, chopped (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts)

2 Banana, mashed up really well

4 tbsp Honey

1/2 tsp Stevia Powder mixed with 1/2 cup water

2 tsp Vanilla

1 tsp almond extract

Preheat oven to 325.

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl plus the shredded carrot.

In a separate mixing bowl, mash the banana, and stir in the remaining liquid.  Add the wet to the dry and stir together.

On a parchment lined cookie sheet spread the mixture out evenly and bake for 20 – 25 minutes.  Every 10-15 minutes check on the granola and stir a bit.
