Stove Top: Cocoa Dusted & Maple Granola

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday! Today I thought I’d bring you a really simple recipe, homemade granola! It took me about 20 minutes total including clean up, has a bit less added sugar than some store bought granolas, and is modifiable to fit your personal preferences.

The other bonus? It’s cheap! Simple & cheap…can’t go wrong there. It makes a great topping to yogurt, is a nice grab-and-go type of snack, and can also be eaten warm with a little milk.

  • 2 cups old fashioned or rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup reduced sugar craisins


  1. Mix all dry ingredients right on in your skillet. Turn heat on low. 

  2. Measure oil first and add to your skillet. Then add your maple, this will make measuring and pouring the maple syrup easier. 

  3. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to routinely turn the mixture for 15 minutes.

  4. Allow to cool (to cool it faster, spread it on a baking sheet) or enjoy warm. 

Recipe Notes

Side note:

  • Enjoy with yogurt, whipped cream, or even ice cream!
  • Serve warm with milk
  • Or put 1/4 cup in a small container for a quick grab and go snack

Would love to hear if you would make any changes or swaps! It’s a very versatile recipe which is one of the main things I love about cooking it. I can change it up and add whatever dried fruit or nuts I have on hand. Happy Wednesday! 🙂
