So let’s skip the chitchat and get down to what you came here for: Speedy, Spiced Granola. Whip out that skillet and start the five minute breakfast countdown.

All you need is five ingredients and five minutes for this insanely speedy, almost unreasonably delish, Spiced Skillet Granola. After that, the world is yours to invite whatever guests you want to your mouth party: I dig my my granola with lashings of Greek yoghurt, and fresh berries, or a baked fruit (check out my easy baked apple how-to here).
This simple granola recipe is also supremely laidback when it comes to customising. Think a couple tablespoons cocoa powder for a chocolatey granola, or nutmeg, allspice and ginger for a fall-flavoured granola. (I also like to mix it up with some cardamom and black pepper!). Your fave nuts would be a great addition, too.
And obviously—since it’s a Skillet granola, I’ll let you in on my favourite cast iron skillet pan I’ve been using daily for YEARS: the Lodge cast iron skillet frying pan, which comes in a range of sizes. It’s pre-seasoned, which means it’s protected against rusting; and the natural, easy-release finish improves with use. My Lodge skillet heats up faster and cooks food better than any of my other cookware; it’s probably my most-used bit of kitchen gear, ever (I make a mean Dutch Baby pancake with it, too).
Now, back to the granola—Print
Grab just FIVE minutes and FIVE ingredients for this insanely delicious, speedy Spiced Skillet Granola!

Place the coconut oil into your skillet, melting over medium heat. Pour in maple syrup or honey, stirring to combine. Add remaining ingredients, except for the oats. Sprinkle in 1/2 tsp sea salt, stirring and cooking for 2 minutes. Finally, add the oats and cook, while stirring, for 3-5 minutes until toasty, golden and fragrant. Transfer to baking sheet to cool completely before storing. (The granola will crisp up while cooling.)
