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.

Onto the baking sheet it goes. (We line ours to make clean-up easier.)

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