Peanut Butter and Banana Granola

I don’t really like the word granola. I’ve always used the word muesli. Granola is so American {not that there is anything wrong with American}. I decided that this was granola. I think it’s the crispy, golden clusters that make it a granola, rather than a muesli. This granola is flavoured with a mashed banana and it’s life- changing.
