FIFTEEN MINUTE SKILLET GRANOLA — Delicious, crunchy granola made in just fifteen minutes on your stove top. No more baking and stirring for hours to make your own granola at home!
Granola is one of my favorite breakfast foods, and I really love to make it myself at home. So I’ve tried a lot of homemade granola recipes and this Fifteen Minute Skillet Granola is by far my favorite.
First, I love the sesame seeds. Why did I never think of adding sesame seeds to my granola before?
Admittedly, most of the ingredients in this recipe are optional, and can be omitted or changed to suit your tastes, but I highly recommend including the sesame seeds!
I also love how quick and easy this granola is to make. It doesn’t require hours of baking, with frequent stops for stirring. It takes about fifteen minutes from start to finish.
I also love the toasted, nutty taste that results with the skillet method. I actually cook mine about 12 minutes (or as long as I can possibly cook it without burning it) because I love the toasty taste so much!
This granola will keep well for several weeks in an airtight container at room temperature. It can also be frozen for longer term storage. But it never lasts that long at my house!
This granola is delicious eaten straight from the bowl with milk, and makes a great topping for yogurt and fruit.
Once you try this Fifteen Minute Skillet Granola, you may never go back to store-bought granola again!
Be sure to save this Fifteen Minute Skillet Granola recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
