WHO: Sil entre jardins is a breakfast maven from Switzerland.
WHAT: A granola that puts your stand-by breakfast cereal to shame.
HOW: Just mix and bake — it’s that simple.
WHY WE LOVE IT: A few things set this granola apart: First, it uses groats instead of oats — a welcome, wholesome change-up from our everyday granola. And second, we love the technique of mashing a banana into the groats mixture before baking; it makes everything faintly sweet, and helps form the precious clumps.

Then add it to the mix -- this will help to sweeten and bind the granola.

After you had the oil and maple, stir.

Spread it out into an even layer, then go do something while it bakes.
