Super Quick Stovetop Granola


We’re in the midst of that crazy time of year for students like myself, when every day is packed with homework, meetings, essays, studying, and if you’re like me, a job. Its hard to find time to do even the basic things and though I tend to be introverted, spending too much time alone is never a good idea. More than ever, at this time of year I’m reminded of the importance of being with others, even if that means working quietly in one another’s presence.

I love granola, but I don’t love waiting 40 minutes for it to crisp up in the oven. Not that more time-consuming granola recipes aren’t delicious in their own right, but quick recipes are always welcome in the morning. This stovetop granola takes 10 minutes, and is the perfect balance of nutty, toasty, sweet and spicy.

If you make this I hope you enjoy every bite. Have a wonderful week, xo

Super Quick Stovetop Granola

Makes 1-2 servings

1/3 cup whole rolled oats

1/4 cup puffed quinoa or rice

1/4 cup pepita seeds

1 tbsp chia seeds

1/4 tsp cinnamon

pinch of salt

1/2 tbsp coconut oil, melted

1/2 tbsp maple syrup (or honey/agave)

nut milk and fruit (like bananas or berries) to serve

Add the oats to a pan over medium-low heat, stirring often until they turn a light golden brown, then mix in the puffed quinoa/rice, pepita seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon and salt, and cook for 1-2 minutes.

Stir in the melted coconut oil and maple syrup. The mixture should start to clump up, cook for 1 minute more then remove from heat.

Either serve immediately with nut milk or yogurt and fruit OR transfer to a parchment lined plate/baking sheet and allow the granola to cool and harden.

Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
