Because what hippie health blog is complete without a granola recipe?
I make my granola in a huge batch in a crock pot every couple months. Crock pot granola is soooooo easy and way less likely to end up burnt than the oven kind. However, if you are someone who likes very crunchy granola, this is not for you. And if you need your crock pot to get 100% shiny clean between uses, this is also not for you. I use an older crockpot that is basically dedicated to this granola recipe and it has a bit of crust on it from all the charred honey around the edge. Unlike most pot meals, you can't just throw it in and leave it all day. You will need to stir every 15-25 minutes for 2 hours, so it's the perfect thing to do on a day when you'll be doing chores or crafting at home. That's about all you need to know! Now, the recipe:
Big thanks to Stephanie O'Dea's book "Make it Fast, Cook it Slow" for the origin of this recipe! Enjoy :)
