Easy Crock-pot Granola

Granola Parfait

This vegan and gluten-free granola is a great way to start the day or have a healthy snack anytime.  It's packed with nutrients to stick with you.  It's also super simple to make.

We enjoy it with flax milk, like breakfast cereal, or layered with unsweetened coconut yogurt for a dairy-free parfait.

Serves: Makes 6 cups (about 20 servings)
Prep Time: About 1 hour
Credits: Inspired by Scottsdale's Crock-Pot Girl



Ingredients

  • 5 CUPS old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 CUP nuts (we use chopped walnuts OR slivered almonds)
  • 1/4 CUP pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 CUP coconut flakes (unsweetened)
  • 1 TBSP flax seed
  • 3/4 CUP maple syrup (we use organic) OR honey
  • 1/4 CUP I Can't Believe It's Not Butter (vegan)


Instructions

  1. Turn on the crock-pot to it's low setting.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients thoroughly in the crock-pot.
  3. Melt the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and mix with maple syrup (or honey).  Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients while stirring.
  4. Set a timer to stir the contents every 10 minutes until they brown to a color that looks good.  This will take 60-90 minutes.  Be sure to scrape the sides each time so the sugars in the syrup or honey don't burn.
  5. Place the granola on cookie sheets to cool.


Info

Experiment with sunflower seeds, different nuts, and various sweeteners to get some healthy variety.  You can also try different oats to see which ones crunch and which ones stay chewy in the crock-pot process.
