10-Minute Stovetop Granola

This post may include affiliate links.

This granola makes a quick, crunchy topping for fresh fruit, yogurt, or frozen yogurt. It can even be enjoyed as a snack on its own. If you like more mix-ins such as dried fruit, chocolate chips, chia seeds, or coconut shavings, stir them in after removing the granola from the heat.

This clean granola recipe makes a delicious breakfast cereal too. Add a little almond milk and you have a nutritious, kid approved, breakfast.

    How long does this keep, and does it need to be refrigerated if you use butter?

      Dianne, This keeps for about 3 weeks. No, you do not have to refrigerate it if you use butter (just as you don't need to refrigerate a cookie that uses butter).
