Skillet granola? Who knew that all you need to make granola is a skillet, some oats and a little sweetener? I make a lot of granola (like this grain-free granola), but I usually bake it slowly in the oven. Now it’s on! Have skillet, will travel!
2 tbls coconut oil or butter
2 tbls maple syrup or honey
1 cup quick cooking oats
¼ tsp cinnamon
½ cup various nuts, seeds, dried fruit or coconut flakes
Pinch of Himalyan Pink Salt
Optional add-ins: raisins, craisins, dried apricots, candied ginger
Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat, stir in the maple syrup. Add the oats, cinnamon and any nuts, seeds or dried fruit you are using.
Stir continuously with a wooden spoon until the mixture is golden brown, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat, cool slightly and enjoy.2
