Skillet Granola: cheap, and delicious!

Wow – I will never buy boxed cereal again!!  Skillet granola is incredibly easy and CHEAP.  I made this with just oats, honey, and butter and it is delicious!  Next time I’ll add some sesame seeds and some raisins, maybe some shredded coconut.


Skillet Granola

2 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons butter
1 cup of old fashioned oats

optional: 1/4 cup of sesame seeds or sunflower seeds, added just before the oats.
optional: 1/2 cup dried fruit added just as the granola begins turning golden brown.

In a large non-stick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.  Slowly stir in honey until combined.

Add sesame/sunflower seeds and cook for about two minutes, stirring constantly.
Add the oats and cook about 4 minutes, continuing to stir.
Add dried fruit just as the oats start to brown. 
Granola is done when the oats are a golden brown.

Spread granola on a sheet  of tin foil to cool.  It will crisp up as it cools.
