THIS HAPPENS TO BE THE BEST GRANOLA YOU’LL EVER TASTE!
Lightly spray the Crock-Pot Slow Cooker pot with oil, or alternatively kitchen paper dampened with a little vegetable oil works well.
Place the oats, almonds, sugar, cinnamon and salt into the pot and mix well.
Warm the coconut oil, honey and vanilla extract in a microwave or small pan until liquefied, pour this onto the oat mixture and stir to combine.
Fit the regular stirring paddle to the AutoStir lid, activate, then set the slow cooker timer to low for 3 hours.
During the first couple of hours of cooking, it’s advisable to manually press the AutoStir button, this will give your granola a good mix throughout without having to remove the lid, losing valuable cooking heat.
Once the cooking time is complete, remove the lid and paddle, mix in the dried fruit and transfer the granola onto a large baking sheet. This will allow the granola to cool and crisp.
Once completely cool, transfer to a suitable airtight container or FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealer bag. Delicious served with natural yogurt and fresh fruit.
