Skillet Granola

Skillet Granola

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit or raisins (optional)
In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. As the butter begins to melt, slowly stir in the honey until well combined.

Add the sesame seeds and cook for 2 minutes - stirring often.

Add the oats and cook 3 to 4 more minutes - stirring often - until the oats are golden brown.

If you're adding raisins or dried fruit, stir them in just as the oats start to brown.

Spread granola evenly over a large cooking sheet to cool.

Skillet Granola Recipe

Note From Mr Breakfast:

I tested this recipe on April 24, 2013. The only change I made was replacing the sesame seeds with sliced almond. For the dried fruit, I chose a combination of chopped dates and dried pineapple pieces. Verdict: This recipe worked great. If you want homemade granola and you want it fast, this should satisfy your needs. I did find that this made closer to 2 large portions, rather than 4 servings.

A very easy recipe with no baking required. Good stuff to have around as cereal or to sprinkle over oatmeal or grapefruit.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank JimmyK for this recipe.

Just okay. I think it's worth the extra time to make granola in the oven instead. I didn't hate it. I've just had better results with other recipes.
