Slow Cooker Crunchy Granola

It’s all good! This crunchy and slightly sweet granola has just enough fat and protein in addition to dietary fiber to make it a filling choice for breakfast or a snack. Oats, a whole grain, provide fiber and B-vitamins, while almonds, pecans, and olive oil provide heart healthy unsaturated fats.

  2. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and gently mix until thoroughly combined and
  3. all of the moisture is distributed.

  5. Keeping the lid to the slow cooker ajar, cook for 2-2 ½ hours on high, stirring every 30 minutes.
