Crock Pot Granola
Crock Pot Granola – yet another delicious recipe you can make in the crock pot! The recipe is delicious, extremely easy and very versatile. After the sauce is made in a pot on the stove, it’s poured over the oatmeal and nuts in the crock pot and stirred to coat.
I cooked it on low for a little over 2 hours, stirring the oats every half hour. When the oats were done cooking , I added the coconut and dried cherries right to the crock pot, stirred it together and turned it out onto cookie sheets to cool. DELICIOUS!!
We’ve had it for snacks, used it as a topping for ice cream and ate it for breakfast. I’ve share it with neighbors who absolutely loved it. You’re going to love using your crock pot to make homemade granola! Enjoy!
