Ingredients for 5-Minute Granola

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/3 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup wheat germ
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Splash vanilla extract
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • Strawberry yogurt and fresh blueberries, for serving

Directions for 5-Minute Granola

  1. Add the oats, almonds and coconut to a dry nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Toast in the skillet, stirring, until they are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Stir in the wheat germ, then pour onto a plate.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium and add the butter. When the butter has melted, add the honey, brown sugar, maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Bring to a boil and let cook, stirring, until it combines into a thin syrup, about 1 minute.
  3. Add the toasted dry ingredients back to the skillet and stir quickly, keeping the granola from clumping too much, but ensuring the dry ingredients are all coated in the syrup, about 1 minute. Serve warm, or allow to cool for 30 minutes, at which point the granola will become crispier.
  4. Sprinkle the granola over the cold yogurt and garnish with blueberries.

  • Oats – The oat (Avena sativa), sometimes called the common oat, is a species of cereal grain grown for its seed, which is known by the same name (usually in the plural, unlike other cereals and pseudocereals). While oats are suitable for human consumption as oatmeal and rolled oats, one of the most common uses is as livestock feed.
