In this recipe, banana is pan-fried until it begins to caramelized and then mixed into a crunchy oat and buckwheat granola, giving it a sweetness that's as delightful as it is unique. You'll have a hard time not devouring this granola in one day and no trouble with finding ways that you can use it. Eating it as a cereal, with a splash of non-dairy milk, snacking on it dry, or topping it on smoothies are among the best!

Caramelized Banana Granola [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Gluten-free Recipes Vegan


For the Granola:

  • 1 1/4 cup gluten-free oats
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/8 cup buckwheat groats
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • Coconut oil

For the Optional Add-Ins:

  • Chia seeds
  • Chopped nuts (omit for nut-free)
  • Puffed brown rice
  • Flax seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Heat a pan with a little bit of coconut oil, just enough to keep the bananas from sticking. Add the sliced bananas and cook them over medium heat for 4-5 minutes, or until they begin to bubble around the edges.
  3. Flip and cook for 2-3 more minutes, or until they’re soft and gooey. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the oats, coconut, buckwheat groats, cinnamon, and any other add-ins.
  5. Mash the caramelized banana as well as you can and then add it to the dry ingredients.
  6. Stir the banana through making sure everything is coated.
  7. Transfer the granola to the baking tray and spread it out evenly.
  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes, lightly stirring halfway through. Remove from oven once the granola is golden.
  9. Let cool and then serve.
  10. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
