Granola Muffins


Recipe developed for Edible Omaha by Julie Kolpin and Mary Oswald

Yield: 16 servings

2 tablespoons chia seeds
6 tablespoons water
2 small bananas, mashed
½ cup nut butter
¼ cup honey
1½ cups granola
1½ cups rolled oats
1 cup dried fruit
⅓ cup chopped chocolate
½ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 325°. Spray 16 muffin cups with nonstick spray or line with foil liners.

In small bowl combine chia seeds and water. Stir and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes or until thickened to the consistency of pudding.

In medium bowl, mix together bananas, nut butter and honey until smooth. Add granola, oats, fruit, chocolate, salt and chia mixture. Blend until combined.

Drop mixture into muffin cups until ¾ full, about ¼ cup per muffin. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool. Store in refrigerator up to 1 week.
