So we all know that I love a good National Food Holiday, and today just happens to be a great one! February 23 (today) is National Banana Bread Day.

How To Make Banana Nut Bread

I know you are probably thinking – why in the world do we have a whole day dedicated to Banana Bread? But I’m going to tell you why – Banana Bread is DELICIOUS – especially when you add nuts and/or chocolate chips. It also happens to be the inspiration behind today’s recipe – Banana Nut Bread Granola.

Best Quick and Easy Banana Bread with Granola

Growing up I thought all granola was the same. To me, it was just that oat-y stuff you put on top of your yogurt in the morning. It wasn’t until I was walking down an isle at Whole Foods that I realized that there were actually a lot of different types of granola.

Learn to Bake Banana Bread

I have done a little bit of experimenting with granola on here – a couple of years ago I made a super basic Maple Granola, and more recently a much more fun Birthday Cake Granola. But this new recipe is by far my favorite. It may have something to do with my complete admiration for Banana Nut Bread, or my over enthusiastic approach to today’s food holiday. Nevertheless, you guys can try it out for yourself and see what you think!
