10 minute Grain free Skillet Granola {gf,v}

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

Let me just start off by saying- I'm never making granola in the oven ever again {ik, bold statement}. 10 minute, one skillet granola is where it's at!! This recipe is so simple, and cooking the granola on the stovetop adds the perfect crispiness and crunch factor. In this recipe, you'll find a variety of nuts, coconut flakes, natural sweeteners, and superfoods, such as matcha {which is optional} and goji berries. The goji berries add a nice splash of frutiness, and act as a great antioxidant. This granola is so versatile; I love serving it on top of yogurt or with a sprinkle to top off a smoothie. This is such a great grain free granola options that's done in no time!
