Granola made in a Cast Iron Skillet

I have many versions of Granola. It was certainly a Hippy staple back in the 60's. We made it every week. I have additional Granola recipes on the Blog and this is just another interesting way to make it. This recipe is made in a Cast Iron Skillet on the stove. Most recipes are baked. This can be eaten as a snack or mixed into your favorite Yogurt for Breakfast.

Her'e what you'll need:
A Large Skillet
A Sheet Pan lined with Parchment Paper.

Granola made in a Cast Iron Skillet.

2 TBS Vegetable Oil
2 C Old Fashioned Oats (no other substitutes will do)

1/2 C Roughly Chopped Pecans
1/4 C Pure Maple Syrup
2 TBS Light Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 C Dried Cranberries

In a Large Skillet on Medium Heat:
Heat for 3 - 5 minutes.

Stir to combine well.
Cook for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat.
Transfer to a Sheet Pan to Cool completely.

In the same Skillet on Medium Heat:

Stir to combine well.
Cook until it begins to thicken, about 1 minute. Stirring constantly.
Oat Mixture and stir to combine well.
Cook for an additional minute, stirring constantly.

Spread evenly onto the Sheet Pan to cool completely.

Peace in the Kitchen!
