recipe: stovetop granola

Discovering that I can make granola on the stovetop was one of my biggest AHA kitchen moments ever. Turning the oven on in the insanity that is the Texas summer is nearly impossible, but granola is a household staple that we can’t really manage most weeks without. It’s super-easy, doesn’t get the house all hot and lends itself to mid-stream corrections and alterations should you find that you have a handful of walnuts or want to add more oats for a bigger batch.

Stovetop Granola
2 cups oats
handful of almonds (or favorite nut)
1 tspn canola oil
1/3 cup of honey or agave

  1. Warm oats & almonds over medium heat in a non-stick pan.
  2. Mix oil and honey together in a small bowl
  3. Add oil & honey mixture to oats and continue toasting over medium heat until golden brown and continue toasting oats and almonds for a bit.
  4. Pull off the heat and let cool. The mixture will harden and clump together a bit.

Our go-to granola is oats, almonds and honey. Sometimes I’ll throw in a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg to change it up. Pecans are also nice.

Be kind. Be patient. Eat well.
