Banana and Walnut Granola

LeitchyCreates

Can't beat granola in the summer months. Simply with milk or yoghurt or scattered over your smoothies, overnight oats, ice cream and more. This ones super bananary and incredibly nutty and delicious. The chocolate chips add a gorgeous touch and indulgent feel. Try my peanut praline bars for the ultimate combo!
