Homemade granola is always a favorite in my kitchen. It’s a hearty breakfast, an energy-boosting snack when you’re on the go and a fantastic way to add some texture to your favorite yogurt. Granola is not difficult to make, but it can be fairly time consuming to make because most recipes call for a long, slow baking time. On a weekend, I don’t mind spending extra time in the kitchen with a batch of granola roasting away, but granola is a perfect weekday snack and I need something quicker and easier on a Monday afternoon. Fortunately, you can make granola without an oven with my recipe for Stovetop Granola, which I’m sharing over on the Craftsy blog (it’s free!). The recipe just takes a few minutes from start to finish, and you can flavor it any way you like!
For this batch, I used dried cranberries and toasted cashews. Other delicious combinations include dried pineapple and roasted macadamia nuts, or a blend of raisins, walnuts and pecans! The options are just about endless.
