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!
Have you tried making homemade yogurt in your instant pot or crock pot? How did it work out?
For now though…granola. 👍
- 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.
- 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.
