Homemade Stovetop Granola

What’s for breakfast? How about our homemade stovetop granola with seasonal berries? This stove top granola is so easy and delicious you won’t ever buy granola again. This basic recipe is super easy to infuse with all kinds of mix-ins allowing you to put your signature twist on it. If you like dried blueberries or dried pineapple then add them. Just as easily you can remove the pecans and cashews if you don’t them, instead add walnuts or hazelnuts. This recipe is all about you and what you like.

We cooked the nuts with the rolled oats to allow the nut oils to deepen their flavor and combine with the other ingredients creating a nice balance between sweep and savory. Be sure to wait to add your dried fruit until after you are done cooking. heat  enhances flavors often times making them bolder and more intense. Your dried fruit already has bold flavors, you don’t want to over power the other flavors in your granola.

We have so many more combinations we want to try…like adding mini chocolate chips or maybe something really crazy like cracked black pepper for a touch of heat. We actually tried it and loved the way the peppery heat was the last flavor to come forward in your mouth.

You are the chef; let your imagination and palette guide.
