You’ll love this easy stovetop granola recipe made in a skillet with rolled oats, chia seeds, almonds, dried fruit, maple syrup, and olive oil.
This Easy Stovetop Granola recipe is inspired by California Almond’s Gluten-Free Skillet Almond Granola recipe that I had at Blog Brûlée a couple of years ago. I had every intention of blogging this right after my trip and well…busy mom life…so here I am FINALLY sharing this amazing recipe.
I went back for seconds when they served this over Siggi’s plain Skyr yogurt, it’s so incredibly DELICIOUS!! Not to mention, this stovetop granola takes less than 10 minutes to make.
I just switched up a few things to work with the ingredients that I had on hand. This granola recipe is so simple and the flavors mingle beautifully together. It’s great as a cereal or as a topping for yogurt, ice cream, or cottage cheese.
You can get really creative with this granola recipe and use your favorite dried fruits, nuts, and seeds to make it your own. This Skillet Fruit & Nut Granola makes a nutritious and filling breakfast or snack.
*Power up your granola cereal with this muscle-building tip: mix 1 scoop of unflavored whey protein powder with 1- 1 ½ cups unsweetened almond, soy, or fat-free milk to enjoy with your cereal or oatmeal.
If you have a little more time to spend, I love this sheet pan homemade granola recipe! I also have a Paleo Cinnamon Crunch granola made without grains. If parfaits are your jam, you might want to try this Protein Granola Greek Yogurt Parfait.
