On Sunday morning I woke up really hungry. As usual, I wanted something healthy and filling, but this time I didn’t have much patience to wait for something to cook. I had some yogurt and fresh fruit but no granola to be found. This stovetop granola is much quicker than using the oven and can be customized to include whatever seeds and nuts you like or have lying around. I threw in a little bit of pretty much everything I had. The recipe below is just a guideline. I only used a small amount of coconut oil and agave to keep this low in fat and sugar. Enjoy!
