Made this for my grandkids, they are so into the sweetened cereals, this seemed like a healthy alternative. They loved it.

Not too sweet (like most Granola) but certainly my new favorite healthy snack!

This recipe needs to be revised. It became delicious once I halved the oats and doubled the banana/date mixture. I also boiled the sweetened coconut in with the dates and blended that and it worked very well. Also, I added some pumpkin pie spice mixture and extra nutmeg and cinnamon, wheat germ, flax seeds, and brown sugar. Thanks for inspiring me to do this twice.
