15 Minute Pumpkin Spice Skillet Granola_4

Granola making just got a whole lot easier. Have you ever burned granola? I have. I find it easy to burn when it goes into the oven. So I thought, there must be a better way. Then, sure enough I hear that making granola on the stove is very easy to do and you’re more in control of how it cooks.

Since its pumpkin everything season, I couldn’t resist making a pumpkin spice version, and as suspected, it turned out fantastic.

Not only do I love the flavors in this granola, I also love that its ready in 15 minutes.

It makes a perfect topping for yogurt, chia seed pudding, desserts and it even makes a great breakfast…just add some milk!

In this 15-minute pumpkin spice skillet granola, I decided to use quick oats instead of large flake oats, simply because I find quick oats easier to digest. If you like, you can use the large flakes oats instead, or if you have both types on hand, you could even mix the two.

The pumpkin seeds and the raisins were a nice touch, but you can always switch for other seeds and dried fruit. But I really like how this combination turned out.

Not only does this granola make your house smell AMAZING, it could also make a great gift too. Who wouldn’t love to receive some homemade granola. I know I would!
