Granola Recipe


Yummy granola! I learned this recipe while working at a Bed and Breakfast in DC. All credit goes to "Little Miss Mary!" This recipe calls for 8 ounces of almonds but we recommend using any nuts you desire -- they are all delicious!


  • 2 medium (7" to 7-7/8" long)s bananas, peeled and diced
  • 1 ¼ cups dates, pitted and chopped
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 cups quick cooking oats
  • 8 ounces dried mixed fruit
  • 8 ounces blanched slivered almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
  2. Puree the bananas and dates in a food processor. Add the brown sugar, hot water, vanilla and cinnamon; mix well.
  3. Pour mixture into a large mixing bowl, add oatmeal and mix well.
  4. Spread onto large baking sheets and bake at 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) for 1 to 1 1/2 hours stirring frequently. Cook longer for crunchier if desired. Once cooled add the dried fruits and nuts, as little or as much as you want, and mix.
