This easy stove top molasses granola has just the right amount of sweetness, crunchy and will be the perfect start to you day.
Granola! Don’t you ever get that burning feeling in your chest when you find out how expensive these things can be at the store. some of those prices seriously give me an ulcer especially with how easy and cheap you can make your own at home. This granola recipe with molasses is simply the best. You can whip up a batch in no time and have that delightful breakfast parfait you’ve always wanted. Things were kept really simple here but you can definitely take this recipe and make it your own. In fact I’d like you to take your own spin on it and let me know how it goes for you in the comments section.
You’ll need some old fashion oats. Quick oats really won’t work as good here. I prefer coconut oil because I like that hint of coconut. You can take this even further by adding some coconut flakes if you are really into coconuts. Vanilla and nutmeg are probably used in every sweet thing I bake or roast. The Mexican vanilla used was actually a gift from a coworker. Needless to say it came in handy here and with other sweet treats. You can easily overdo it with nutmeg so just a pinch is good enough. Cinnamon is a good substitute for nutmeg.
You might be tempted to crank up the heat and get things cooked fast but I’d rather you not ruin an amazing batch of granola. Maintain at medium heat and stir frequently to avoid burning. You might also want to multitask but stay as close as you can to the skillet. Nothing is more frustrating than ruining things at the last minute. Once ready simply cool on parchment paper. Store in a sealed container or zip lock bag and enjoy in parfaits , oatmeal bowls or as is. Be a darling and impress you friends with a jar or two as gifts.
Hope you try this easy stove top molasses granola recipe and enjoy it as much as we did.
