Slow-Cooker Granola

READY IN: 5hrs 5mins
Recipe by New Mommy and Lovin

I found this recipe in Parents Magazine [November 2006]. I like that its "healthier," in that they use AJ concentrate and not oil. When I made it, I substituted Splenda Brown Sugar, for fewer calories.

Easy and tasty! I like the lower calorie aspect. I used it warm as a topping over ice cream....yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In your slow-cooker [crockpot], stir together the oats, almonds, coconut, and wheat germ.
  2. In a seperate microwaveable bowl, mix honey, apple juice concentrate, br. sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Microwave for one minute.
  3. Pour the liquid into the slow cooker and stir until evenly coated.
  4. Cook for one hour on high, UNCOVERED.
  5. Then cook four hours on low, COVERED.
  6. Periodically, stir the granola. It will be a nice toasted-brown color.
  7. When done, stir in the cranberries. PLEASE, DO NOT ADD THE CRANBERRIES EARLIER! if they cook in the crockpot with everything else, it will burn and became a huge mess. [I'm speaking from experience here.]
  8. Store in an airtight container.
  9. It should yield approximately ten 1/2C servings.
