Banana Spiced Quinoa Granola

Happy Monday, friends! I'm so excited to share this quinoa granola recipe my family has been loving this past month. There are a few store-bought brands with no refined sugar, but they can be a little pricey at the rate my guys gobble it up. Granola is also such a simple, quick recipe, why not make it on your own?! Some of our favorite ways to use this is over yogurt, smoothies, fruit bowls, salads and as cereal. I hope you enjoy!

2 Cups Organic Rolled Oats
3/4 Cup Organic Uncooked Quinoa
3/4 Cup Organic Raw Pumpkin Seed
1/4 Cup Organic Sliced Almonds
1/2 Cup Organic Raisins
2 Tbl. Organic Chia Seed
1 1/2 Tbl. Organic Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp. Organic All Spice
Pinch of Salt
4 Tbl. Organic Maple Syrup
3 1/2 Tbl. Coconut Oil
1/2 Tbl. Vanilla
2 Medium, Very Ripe Bananas (Cut into tiny pieces and slightly mashed)

1. Heat oven to 365 degrees, line large cookie sheet with parchment and spray with coconut oil.
2. Whisk together banana, vanilla, coconut oil (no need to melt) and maple syrup. In separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Pour wet mixture over the dry ingredients and combine with large spoon, then use hands to fully incorporate.
3. Transfer to large cookie sheet and press down to form an even "sheet" of granola. Make sure the sides are the same thickness as the rest of the "sheet" to avoid burning.
4. Bake for 15 minutes then bring out and break into big clumps with spoon. During this step make sure to look for raisins that may be sitting on the edge of the cookie sheet. The raisins and smaller pieces will burn quickly so it's best to move these to the center of the sheet or incorporate with other clumps. Place back in oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Take out and turn the granola, then bake for an additional 5-8 minutes depending of how crispy you want it. NOTE: This final baking time will be determined by how large your clumps are and how crispy you want it. Also, I've tried dropping the granola in large clumps to the cookie sheet to begin with, but the method I use here seems to allow the granola to become more crispy and stay in clump form longer.
5. Remove from oven and let cool before transferring to mason jar.
