Banana Nut Granola

Another way to use overripe bananas! We have been on a trail mix buying kick and an oatmeal kick. However, just eating them plain was getting a little redundant. I saw a banana getting a bit to brown for regular eating and this idea came the mind! It can cut into crumbly granola bars or crumbled up completely to be eating as a cereal! A great high energy treat.
