Whether sprinkling over yogurt, drowning it in milk, or grabbing by the handful, granola is delicious eaten every way. If you haven’t learned the costly and flavor benefits of making it home, then this is the next step of information that will change the way you look at breakfast.
Stove top granola.
I usually make a large batch of oven-cooked granola mixed with whatever ingredients I have handy, but sometimes I forget to remake the stash and I am left with nothing to dress my morning yogurt with. I figured from applying the concept of; ‘if it takes 45 minutes in the oven, it should take 10 minutes on the stove’ to granola. Just saute it pretty much, right?
This has been the greatest thing because you can enjoy whatever flavors you’d like. All you need to do is mix in whatever ingredients, cover it, and in 10 minutes you have a personalized batch of granola. The beauty doesn’t just lie in the customization, or the quickness of this technique, it’s the price of this delicious breakfast. You can keep it so simple and just use plain oatmeal, 1 tbsp of coconut oil and 1 tsp of honey which would cost you a whopping $0.46. Obviously the more high end ingredients (goji berries, chia seeds, macha powder, etc.) the higher the cost would become, but usually my more extravagant bowls never exceed $2.00.
My Favorite Recipe;
Honey Almond Sesame Stove Top Granola
- 1 serving old fashioned rolled oats (buy in bulk to save money in the long-run)
- 1 tbsp unrefined coconut oil
- 1 tsp of raw honey
- quarter cup of raw sliced almonds
- 2 tbsp of raw sesame seeds
- small pinch of natural sea salt
Slightly heat oil and honey then add oats. Allow it to soak up the oil then add the remaining ingredients. Cover and put on lowest setting of heat. Check up on within 5 minutes, when oats are golden that means its ready. Uncover and leave to cool for a few minutes. Enjoy!
