10 Minute Cashew Coconut Stovetop Granola

As I was rummaging around the health foods section at my local Kroger, a package of cashew coconut granola caught my attention. Then, seemingly in slow motion as I was placing the package in my cart, I thought to myself, “I can totally make this at home.” So here we are.

This Cashew Coconut Stovetop Granola is one of those breakfasts you can make at the beginning of the week to enjoy the rest of the week. It’s the ultimate lazy-and-completely-natural breakfast food, which I love. ANYONE can make this granola, even if cooking is not your life. It takes all of 10 minutes to make!

The Granola

This is a super basic granola recipe involving oats, coconut, cashews, cinnamon, maple syrup, and coconut oil. Chia seeds are included in the recipe, but you can use flax seeds instead to provide omega-3’s. And I give you permission to not feel like you have to eat granola with yogurt. I love eating it as I would dry cereal by adding milk and fresh fruit. It’s really good that way!

  • Only ten minutes to make this crunchy granola? Why have I never made it on the stove top before? Totally trying soon 🙂

  • Wonderful recipe.I like this and I think this is very delicious.
    I am going to make this recipe for my family and husband
    Thanks for sharing

    Quite good! I had everything on hand except cashews, which aren’t my favorite anyways. I added a few drops of almond extract near the end of toasting for nuttiness instead.

    It’s awesome to know how easy it is to make granola on the stove! I will definitely use this recipe as inspiration for future granola endeavors.

    Tip to others: watch this carefully, just like oven granola it goes from totally raw to perfectly toasted all of a sudden. Luckily it’s right in front of you so you don’t have to guess and check with the oven door, but I came very close to overcooking mine.

    • Glad you enjoyed it, Jo! And yes, that’s an excellent reminder for everyone that a watchful eye is needed when toasting granola on the stove. Thanks for mentioning that 🙂
