About The Recipe

Granola. In fifteen minutes. Am I crazy?

Okay, probably a little bit, but it’s true! I discovered this out of total curiosity and craving. I wanted granola to go with my breakfast, but I hadn’t bought any recently and I was not about to wait two hours for a few handfuls.

So, I asked my mom if it was possible to make granola on the stovetop. She didn’t think so (and, neither did), but I did it anyways. I was expecting a burnt and gooey messy that sorta resembled granola.

Instead, I was given a perfectly golden, extra crunchy, and super delicious almond vanilla granola!

To say I was shocked would be an understatement. I have grown up waiting hours for granola, now I can have it within 15 minutes and whenever I want! Plus, sticking it in the fridge helped cool it down way faster.

Equipment Needed

  • Mixing Bowls
  • Sauté Pan
  • Non-Stick Cooking Spray

Ingredients

  • Oatmeal
  • Slivered Almonds
  • Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Honey
  • Vanilla
  • Coconut Oil

Instructions

Mix together the oatmeal, almonds, shredded coconut, cinnamon, and salt in a medium sized mixing bowl.

Add in the honey, coconut oil, and vanilla. The granola mixture should be stick, but not too wet. You should be able to press it and it should keep its shape.

Once everything is thoroughly mixed, place the granola into a greased sauté pan. Cook over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes, or until golden. Turn off heat and continue stirring for another minute. Make sure you stir this constantly while cooking. It’ll decrease the chances of it burning.

Spread the hot granola onto a large dinner plate and let cool. You can also place it in the fridge for a few minutes to help speed up the cooling process.

What To Serve With

My absolute favorite thing about granola is its diversity. Breakfast, dessert, snacks.. What you want it to be, it can be! It’s super simple and always delicious, but here are a few of my favorite things to do/serve with this granola:

  • Topping for yogurt bowls
  • Mix in chocolate or your favorite dried fruits.
  • Top or serve with Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles
  • With milk as a cereal.
  • A topping for vanilla ice cream.
  • Sprinkled on top of waffles or pancakes.
  • Served alongside fruit.

How To Store

You can simply keep the granola in a sealable glass jar, in an airtight plastic container, or in a sealable bag! It’s that easy. Just leave it out on the counter and grab a handful whenever you want. It should keep for a little over a week.
