For the past year I have been consistently using the crock-pot to make my granola. I have found that making crock-pot granola saves me time since I don’t have to clean as many dishes (I mix the granola ingredients right in the crock-pot and don’t have to use a baking sheet), I make huge batches so I make the granola about once every 3 weeks, and it saves me money since store-bought granola costs A LOT of money! Plus I get to control the ingredients.
The original granola recipe I use is here which I have adapted for the crock-pot. In most of my menu plans I talk about making a quadruple batch of granola using two different crock-pots at the same time. So I thought it’s time to explain exactly what I do.
I always use a 6 quart crock-pot to cook the granola, and then I use either a 7 quart or a 4.5 quart crock-pot, depending which crock-pot I have out and/or available. I think the 6 quart works best for making granola because it gives enough room to stir, yet it’s a little less to clean then the 7 quart.
I am sharing the recipe I cook in one big crock-pot (4.5 quart or larger), so feel free to double it if you are going to use 2 big crock-pots, or halve it if you are using a 2-4 quart crock-pot.
