Slow-Cooker Granola

granola for post

Yes, from the slow-cooker!

Is there anything this handy small kitchen appliance can’t do? 😉

I am soooo loving my Hamilton Beach Slow-Cooker (click to read review for the model I have) use it all the time.

I recently made homemade (cranberry and almond) granola in it, for the first time and it turned out delish.

Easy to make, you control the ingredients, sweetness and price is so much better than store-bought granola too.

I used the Slow-Cooker Granola Recipe from:  Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker by Robin Robertson as a guide, but any granola recipe should work fine.

After stirring the liquid and dry ingredients thoroughly, I cooked mine on HIGH for 1 hour, uncovered and an additional 1 and  3/4 hours on LOW, covered.

Another plus: the aroma while cooking…divine! 🙂

Forget those oat-filled, oh so… ho hum…packages of store-bought granola and make your own.

Just remember to stir occasionally while cooking, to keep from browning too much.

Happy Cooking! 🙂
