Making granola in a skillet couldn’t be any easier; this batch took me less than 10 minutes to make. I simply tossed all of the ingredients in the skillet, and voila!
This recipe is vegan and it can be adapted, naturally. If you like a buttery taste, you can sub the coconut oil for butter and the maple syrup for honey. Shredded coconut and sesame seeds are also good in this granola! -bvox
- 1 ½ cups old-fashioned (large flake) oats
- ¾ cup chopped almonds
- ¼ cup pepita (pumpkin) seeds
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- a pinch of salt (I used Steph McVox’s vanilla sea salt)
- ½ cup of dried cranberries
Heat coconut oil and maple syrup in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat and stir until melted together. Stir in nuts and cook, stirring, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add oats, cinnamon, and salt and cook, stirring, until golden brown, another 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside to cool and stir in cranberries.
