Peanut Butter & Banana Granola

Makes about 4 ½ cups

1/3 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 tablespoons honey
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ½ cups rolled oats
¼ cup roasted peanuts, chopped
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
½ cup dried bananas
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips, optional

Nonstick cooking spray

Preheat oven to 300-degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray. Whisk peanut butter, oil, honey, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, or until melted; whisk again to combine.

Combine oats, peanuts, pumpkin seeds and salt in a large bowl. Pour peanut butter mixture over oat mixture and gently toss. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Bake, stirring occasionally, until golden brown (about 15 to 20 minutes). Remove from oven. Once cool, mix in banana chips and chocolate chips, if using. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
