How to Make Granola in Your Slow Cooker

I love granola.

But I hate making it since I’m incredibly talented at burning it.

I’m really good at running outside while it’s cooking to “quickly” grab something, and then I find myself still outside 2 hours later having completely forgotten to check on my now blackened pan of oats…

So, when I stumbled upon the idea of making granola in my slow cooker, I was intrigued.

Yes, it IS still possible to burn it using this method, but thankfully it a little harder to do so.

It’s a simpler way to make a healthy alternative to those junkfood breakfast cereals. In fact, I enjoyed a bowl just this morning before heading outside to do my morning chores.

    I made crockpot granola yesterday, though not using any of your information, and it DID burn. Luckily I eat burned food but the boyfriend does it. So yes, be careful and watch it!
