Banana Chocolate Granola

Have you seen this little video yet? I’m Making Cook’s Illustrated Beef Stew! I saw it on facebook the other day and it left me in stitches.

I am a huge fan of the Cook’s Illustrated publications, owning more of their supplemental magazines, recipe collections and every off shoot of the brand that I can find. I enjoy reading the tips, tricks, and methods leading in to why they prepare things the way they do, but say I will never cook my way through all of them would be an understatement (as you can see joked about in the video linked above). The quality of the recipes is stellar but even I often find their recipes daunting.

Sometimes its easier to break away from the rules and just cook. That’s exactly what I did for this granola recipe. I knew I wanted to use banana chips and have a peanut butter/chocolate thing going on. Sadly, I forgot this brilliant idea was born over a bowl of Banana Cheerios and forgot to include those little gems in the mix.

I could probably live of this granola if I wanted to. It has every staple I could possible need... peanut butter, chocolate, banana. Hello, happiness.

I have a hard to with recipes that are so regimented, esp for cooking. I can't get into cooks illustrated books for that reason. I love to throw it all together like you did with the granola
