Summertime Granola

Since my family is just about out of granola and the current heatwave in this area and the oven do not mix, I decided to pull out the old crock pot and slow cook a fresh batch.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 3/4 cup apple juice sweetened cranberries

  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup (grade B is fine)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  1. Combine all ingredients in a lightly oiled 4-quart slow cooker and stir to combine.
  2. Cook on high for 1.5 hours, uncovered, stirring occasionally.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and cook, uncovered for another 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is crisp and dry.
