This is one of my best granola recipes, enthusiastically endorsed by my 3-year old grandson. Even better, a slight modification will give you “‘nola bars”.

This recipe is subtitled “A Perfect Baby Cereal” and that is a pretty good description. The contributor tells us it was her baby’s first cereal and is still his favorite four years later. She just doesn’t grind the oats as finely.
Cooking the oats in milk instead of water means no milk has to be added at the table. So the cereal is “thick enough to stay on an upside-down spoon” as baby learns to feed herself. The banana also supplies all the sweetening needed. So no starting baby on a sugar addiction.
And grown-ups can enjoy the cereal as well. It tastes good. For adults and older children, just don’t grind the oats as finely—or even at all.
