Crock Pot Granola

Crunchy granola made right in your crock pot! Eat it plain or sprinkled on your favorite yogurt. Add in your favorite crunchiness and make it your own.

I have successfully made granola in my crock pot several times. My next task is making homemade yogurt in my Instant Pot. For some reason, making homemade yogurt intimidates me, but, I am determined!

Ingredients Needed:

  • Old fashion oats
  • Chopped raw nuts
  • Maple syrup
  • Salt + Ground cinnamon + Vanilla
  • Egg white
  • Coconut oil
  • Your preferred stir ins

Raw Nuts: I used pecans, because, that is what I had on hand. However, cashews, peanuts, almonds or macadamia nuts.

Maple Syrup: If desired, honey can be used instead.

Coconut Oil: Melt it, then, let it cool before adding it to your oats mixture. See the recipe card for the brand I use.

Egg White? Yes. I like to add one to my homemade granola. It will give you a few crunchy nuggets in your granola.

Stir In Ideas:

  • Shredded coconut
  • Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds
  • Dried fruit
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Flaky cereal ( ex: corn flakes, all bran, etc)

A note about stir ins: Chocolate chips and dried fruit should be added in after your granola is baked.

To Make:

  • In a large bowl, toss together oats, raw nuts and stir ins (see above notes about stir ins)
  • Add in remainder of ingredients and mix it completely. Get all that mixture coated.
  • Transfer to your crock pot.
  • When cooking the crock pot, you will have the lid on, but, it will need to be vented a bit. This will help release some of the heat and give it more of a crunch. Stick the handle of a wooden spoon under the lid to keep it propped up a bit to vent.
  • While it’s cooking, stir frequently.
  • When it’s done, spread the mixture evenly on top a large flat rimmed baking sheet to cool. Once it’s cooled, mix in any stir ins that weren’t cooked in with the mixture.
  • Store your granola in an airtight covered container
