Ham

Yep, it's always super snappy to ham it up with your slow-cooker!

Used 6-quart slow cooker

Cook Time 4 hours
Temp Low

We also have kiddos that love to snack on crunchy treats so we came up with the granola as something tasty that can be served as a snack or as a topper for yogurt, oatmeal, or even ice cream! “Yummy for my tummy” as the kids like to say!

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups Oats
  • 1 1/2 Cups Raisins
  • 1 Cup Walnut, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2/3 Cup Honey
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 1 Cup wheat Chex cereal

Directions

  1. Step One

    Pour oats, raisins, cereal, walnuts, chocolate chips, and brown sugar in the slow-cooker. Mix well.

  2. Step Two

    In a small bowl, add honey and beat in the egg. Drizzle over the oat mixture and stir until moist.

  3. Step Three

    Cover, but leave the lid cracked open and cook on HIGH for 2 hours or on LOW for 4 hours, stirring occasionally.

  4. Step Four

    When done, remove crock insert from heat and let cool. This crunchy granola is a great snack or topping for yogurt or ice cream.

    I redid the recipe on high, and it is great! My only question is how are the white chocolate chips still intact in the picture? Mine are melted.

    Richelle, if your crock cooks hot then you’ll definitely need to lower the crockin’ time. I have a couple of extra hot crocks that cook on the WARM setting!

    I really hoped this would work, but it all tastes a bit burnt. I stirred a lot. I will try again, but maybe cook only 3 hours on low.

    I’m really tickled with myself for pulling this recipe off! I used pecans (preference) and cooked on low for about 4 1/2 hours. There was a little bit of scorching, so I made sure to stir every 45min or so. I let it cool on a pan and it “crunched” up. Not mushy at all. Actually, maybe even a little too crunchy- wouldn’t mind it softer at all. I think next time I will use fewer raisins, add more nuts and white choc chips and decrease cook time. What fun!

    I’m about to make my 3rd batch! Love it mixed in my yogurt. 1st batch: I don’t think I stirred it often enough so some of the raisins tasted burnt. I used pecans instead of walnuts (personal taste preference). I love granola but many are too crunchy for me (issues with TMJ) – this recipe hasn’t been mushy for me. My 2 y/o loves it too!

    Way to make it your own, Darlene! Your healthier version sounds YUMMO!!

    Helena – I’m thinking your cracked lid just didn’t seal your crock and let it cook like it’s suppose to. It shouldn’t be mushy at all after 7 hours of crockin’.

  7. Darlene

    I made this a couple of weeks ago and it was great! I had a few substitutions for what I had and like better…I had almonds so I used those and they are good for cholesterol, I used dark choc which is good for the heart, I used agave and sugar in the raw to be healthier and it’s also better for keeping blood suger stable, and I used craisins because I had them in the house. Mine turned out crisp and delicous. I did stir it often as well. For anyone that had a problem with it turnong out try again it is worth a second try.

    I did cook it with the lid cracked (my pot is oval, so I just put it on at a right angle, so it was cracked at either end). Since my cooker runs hotter, I figured that would help keep it from burning. I pulled it after 3 hours, let it cool completely, and it was still mushy, not crisp at all. I put the crock back into the heating element and let it go another 4 hours. It was still mushy, so I spread it on a cookie sheet and baked it in my oven for 25 minutes, and it was delicious. I think I will definitely stick with the oven method from now on.

    Oh know, Sara! Hate it when a recipe doesn’t turn out :/ It sounds like your crock may cook hot. Ours didn’t burn at all and we’ve made it in the GE 6 quart from Walmart and the All-Clad.

  11. Sara

    I was so to make this. I read every review to make sure everything was done properly and that no mistakes were made. Overall, I like the IDEA of easy peasy granola, homemade. I give it a 2 because the kids had fun making it. Other than that, I am going to stick with baking it in the oven because this recipe is not one I will be making again in the crock pot. The raisins were burnt along with the chex. The spots that weren’t burnt are delicious though.

    This recipe sounds really yummy, but I may make a few changes. My son has a severe tree nut allergy, so I’m thinking about substituting peanuts for the walnuts. Also, we are not fans of white chocolate, so I may substitute dark chocoalate chips for the white chocolate. Hope this turns out good.. I’m really craving it now.

    Did you cook it with the lid cracked? Also when the time is up, you take the insert out and let it cool with the lid off.

  14. Helena

    I have had this in my crock for 6 hours now on low, and it is still soft. Does it ever crisp up? I am about to just stick it on a cookie sheet in the oven. :/ It’s so odd because usually my crock cooks everything faster than posted times. I sub’d dried cranberries for raisins, chopped pecans for walnuts, and used a different, but similar, cereal. I can’t see how any of those things would affect the texture, though.

    The great thing about this is you can totally make your own. There is honey in this recipe. Are you wanting to omit the brown sugar? If you use a raw sugar, it would be healthier. You may even think about agave nectar instead of honey. As far as the other ingredients, you can use whatever you want to make it healthier. Maybe carob chips instead of chocolate chips…it is really up to you.

    Lisa, You will need to use regular oats for this. :)

  17. Is there any way to make this healthier like with honey or maple syrup??? Thanks:-)

  18. lisa d.

    Is it quick oats or regular oats? Excited to try this and want to make sure thanks

    Love it! I am an in-home childcare provider (and former teacher) and I think there is so much learning that can be done right in the kitchen! I try to make sure that I get the kids mixing, measuring, baking, and cooking as much as possible! This will be a very tasty (and healthy) treat for the kids to create without much help from me! :) :) :) Thanks!

    I love how you post all ingredients with your video too. Thanks a bunch!!

    Sorry to hear that, girl. Did you make sure you cracked the lid on your slow cooker. The newer cookers do tend to cook hotter so you may have to really watch yours to see what the perfect time is.

  22. Marla K.

    Not sure what I have done wrong, but the granola is scorching badly all around the edges after only an hour, despite having my crock on its lowest setting.

    Love to hear your suggestions!
