Banana Granola Recipe

We have been making granola again, and my daughter, Leigh, found a Banana Granola recipe on Pinterest which I adapted, and it was a huge hit! Use this granola in your Greek yogurt, smoothies, to top smoothie bowls, or eat as a snack or dessert. It has a great taste and is so easy for words.

Banana Granola Smoothie

My favorite new smoothie recipe is this very simple Banana Granola Smoothie. For breakfast or an afternoon snack, this smoothie will satisfy you and the kids. My son, Zachary, started football practice this week. Can you believe it? Where is summer going? I have been making him this Banana Granola Smoothie before his rigorous practices, and he loves it! This will also be on our list for a back to school breakfast recipe. Feel free to add protein powder and 1 (6-ounce) container of nonfat Greek yogurt. If your bananas are not quite ripe yet, add 2 teaspoons of honey. I this smoothie recipe with only 4 ingredients, and I use Kind Granola which is gluten-free, high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.  I got this smoothie idea from my friends at Lifetime Fitness where I enjoy a healthy smoothie after my own workouts. Try it, you’ll love it!
