It’s no secret that I love making my own granola, but it is hella time consuming (I mean, it’s not but it feels it with all the stirring and I’m super lazy.)
This stove top alternative takes 15 minutes max and tastes just as good. You don’t get as many clusters but you do get to save time so who’s the real winner here.
Manufactured granolas can often have lots of added sugars, preservatives etc, you know the story by now, but this way you know exactly what’s going in there. You can also make is using which ever ingredients you like so no more picking out the brazil nuts! (just me?)
Combine 100g oats with nuts and seeds of your choice. I used – 1 handful of pecans, 1 handful of almonds, 1 handful of hazelnuts, 1 tbsp golden linseeds and 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds.
In a large pan, melt 1 tbsp nut butter (I used coconut almond), 1 tbsp honey/maple syrup and 1 tbsp coconut oil. Once melted, add to your oats/nuts mix and stir.
Transfer back to the pan and heat gently on the stove, stirring to make sure the oats don’t burn. You’ll hear some popping, that’s totally fine. Keep stirring until the nuts are toasted and the oats are darker in colour.
Leave to cool before storing air tight.
To make a larger quantity just double up the ingredients 🙂
and use a bigger pan…
