Repost: Frying Pan Granola

I originally posted this recipe back in 2009. Such a long time ago. I like granola but I like it too much. For this reason, I don’t really like making whole batches in the oven, or buying a whole box, because it will only last 24 hours. I love this recipe because it makes a small batch and it is fast. This recipe needs a non-stick pan.

Frying Pan Granola


1c rolled oats

1/2c shredded coconut

1/2 cup nuts of your choice

1/2 cup your seeds of choice (I used sunflower and pumpkin seeds last time)

1-2 tbsp sugar

1/2c raisins or dried fruit of your choice

2 tbsp bran

Put the nuts, seeds and oats into a frying pan and turn on the heat to med-high.  When they start to become fragrant and lightly toasted, add the rest of the ingredients.  You will need to stir constantly as the sugar will melt. Keep cooking until everything is toasted golden brown.  Remove from heat immediately as the sugar will continue to cook.  Cool, add raisins and serve with yogurt, milk or soy milk.  The whole process takes about five minutes.
