Skillet Granola...

When I first started doing research for our kitchen garden I came across the website "Little Homestead in the City", I continue to follow and hopefully learn from their experiences. When I told my friends about them they were like "I bet they eat Granola too!" and Yes, they do! Here is a recipe they shared this week. It sounds wonderful.

Skillet Granola(4 servings)

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats

  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds (sunflower 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. A very easy recipe with no baking required. Good stuff to have around as cereal or to sprinkle over oatmeal or grapefruit.
