Peanut Butter & Banana Chip Granola

There’s nothing like a bowl of homemade granola and this might just be my NEW FAVORITE I love that I can control what goes into the mix to lower the sugar content and up the nuts  🙂 YUM!! This mix is great with unsweetened almond or coconut milk or simply on its own. It also makes a great snack while hiking.
