Easy Stovetop Granola

Β Easy and Crunchy Homemade granola

What is the best part about making Homemade Granola? Not only is it healthier than the store-bought ones but it also makes your house smell sooooΒ amazingly good! Just like when you bake some of those heavenly cookies… but the difference is – you won’t feel guilty when making granola! πŸ˜‰

Granola is such a versatile snack – you can sprinkle some on your oats, have it with your yogurt or even eat it just as it is by the handfuls.

While homemade granola is indeed healthy, it can be a little time-consuming. Now, that would be fine on a long lazy day, but did you know that it can be made much more quickly on your stovetop?Β Perfect for those days when you just can’t wait to have some! It turns out just as delicious and is really quick.

So let’s get started with this super-simple recipe of Homemade Granola –

Easy Stovetop Granola

Ingredients

  • 1.Old fashioned oats - 3 cups
  • 2. Coconut oil/ Butter/ Oil - 1/4 cup
  • 3. Brown Sugar - 1/4 cup
  • 4. Honey/ Maple syrup - 2 tbsp
  • 5. Cinnamon - 1/2 tsp
  • 6. Almonds (chopped or whole) - 1 cup (approx)
  • 7. Dried cherries/ cranberries - 1/2 cup
  • 8. Coconut flakes - 1/3 cup (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large, non-stick skillet, put the coconut oil/ butter. Once it melts, add the brown sugar. When it turns slightly bubbly, add the oats, cinnamon, honey & almonds. Keep stirring on medium heat for around 10 minutes till the oats are golden brown.
  2. Remove the oats from the pan and place it on a tray to cool it. I like to line my tray with a parchment paper. Add the dried cranberries, cherries & coconut flakes and give it a mix. Place it in an air-tight container once it cools down.

And that is how I made the easiest recipe ever! πŸ™‚ Β I’m currently munchingΒ on it as I’m writing this post andΒ just can’t get enough of it.

Frankly, I feel there are no rules when it comes to making granola – you can basically add any nuts or dried fruits that you like – heck, you can even add chocolate chips for that matter if you want to be a little indulgent πŸ˜‰ So go on, give it a try – I’m sure you will love it just as much as I did!

    Did you see the chia vanilla pudding on “Cooking with a Wallflower”? I plan to make that but just needed some granola. This easy stove top version is just what the chef ordered. It’s wonderful to find solutions to menu planning here at Fiesta Friday. Thanks for the welcome contribution.
