Cook Time: 60 Minutes
Equipment needed:  Bowl, spoon, measuring cup set, baking tray & paper.

Makes: 1.5 Liters


1 1/2 Frozen bananas (you can also make this with fresh bananas but it will take about 30 minutes in the oven. If you do tho, stir every 10 minutes.)

1 1/2 tbs Almond butter
Pinch of Vanilla powder
Pinch of Salt
1 1/2 tbs cacao powder
500 grams Gluten Free Oats (approx. 4.5 Cups)
50 grams Buckwheat groats
50 grams Chopped nuts
4 tbs Shredded Coconut
Desired amount of dried fruit (about 2 1/2 cups) – can leave out for a low sugar option, or substitute for seeds.



1. Heat or Microwave the bananas until warm, pour off liquid & mash them in a bowl.

2. Add almond butter, vanilla, salt & cacao power and mix until smooth. (You could also add orange zest or other flavoring here.)

3. Add the rest of the ingredients (except dried fruit) & mix until clusters are formed.
4. Heat oven to 250C.
5. Let mixture sit for about 30 minutes in room temperature.
6. Spread granola on a baking tray and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Watch it carefully, depending on your oven it can get burned quickly.
7.  When the granola gets a nice colour, remove from the oven and mix in the dried fruit. Let cool.
8. Add to an airtight container & store dry.
9. Enjoy!


Granola is a great snack on the go or a quick pre made breakfast.  Highly recommend serving it with delicious Gluten Free Blueberry Banana Ice Cream.

I usually make a big batch on Sundays meaning for it to last all week, but by Wednesday, I’m usually out.. Needless to say, I hope you enjoy this crispy cacao goodness as much as I do!’ ~ Iris.
