As I have mentioned on the blog before, I avoid eating wheat at breakfast and lunch. I have found that I have much more energy and no longer get the 2pm slump. This has changed my life for the better in so many ways, but it has also posed some challenges. I love baked goods—muffins, scones, and bagels for breakfast and sandwiches on really good bread for lunch are my faves. One of my go-to breakfasts since this transition (along with baked goods made with spelt flour like this one and this one) has been granola. I make a batch pretty much every week. I love that it is quick and that I can mix in lots of fruit, have it with some protein-rich yogurt, and be good to go for the whole morning. The only problem is that sometimes I don’t have time to bake that next batch and then I am left struggling to find a quick breakfast.
Well, no more! I have recently discovered skillet granola and my life is forever changed! Yes, I will still bake big batches. But for those times when I need some quickly, this skillet granola that takes only 7 minutes to make (including chopping up nuts!) is a delicious alternative! And when you eat it right away it has the added perk of being warm, but not hot like oatmeal. I’m in love and I think as soon as you try it, you will be too….
