Easy Stovetop Granola


An easy and delicious granola – perfect served with milk or as a topping for yogurt.

This granola is made in the pan and, as you can control the temperature, it is just as easy to make as if you were to bake it in the oven. Store the granola in an airtight container and you’ll have breakfast for the week.

You can easily customize the granola to your taste. Use other nuts and seeds, change the dried fruit or leave it out altogether and add spices such as cinnamon or cardamom. You can also replace the honey with syrup or maple syrup.


Stovetop Granola

50 gram Almonds

25 gram Butter

75 gram Honey

1 tsp. Vanilla sugar

125 gram Rolled oats

25 gram Pumpkin seeds

pinch Fine salt

75-100 gram Raisins


Make the granola

Chop the almonds coarsely.

In a pan, combine butter, honey, vanilla sugar, oatmeal, almonds, pumpkin seeds and salt.

If you place the pan on your kitchen scale, you can weigh everything directly into the pan, so you’ll have less washing up.

Set the pan to 175ºC.

Toast the granola for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally. The muesli is ready when it is well browned and smells toasty and delicious.

Let it cool

Remove the pan from the heat. Add the raisins and give it a stir.

Spread the granola on a piece of baking paper and let it cool completely. Transfer the cold granola to an airtight container.

Serving suggestions

Serve your homemade granola the simple way with just milk, or try adding some fresh fruit, such as apple or berries.

The granola is also delicious as a topping for yoghurt and chia pudding or try using it as topping for a smoothie bowl.

If you want to change up your granola, then try replacing the almonds and pumpkin seeds with other nuts or seeds. You can substitute dried cranberries, chopped apricots, dates or other dried fruit for the raisins. Also try swapping the vanilla sugar for cinnamon or cardamom and i if you don’t have any honey, you can use syrup or maple syrup instead.


This recipe is made using a 24 cm pan, if you use a 28 cm pan the granola will probably need a shorter cooking time as the layer in the pan will be thinner.
