Crockpot Cocoa Granola

(10 servings)

  • 4 cups rolled oats (quick or old fashioned)
  • 1 cup bran flakes
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
This is more of a "yes it can be done" recipe than a recipe I'd want to make regularly. It's fun to discover that you can make granola in a slow cooker, but I have to honestly report that granola from the oven is far superior. The flavors coalesse better in the oven and you get a nice browning effect with the oats that never really happens in the slow cooker. While this granola was decent and I did enjoy the bowl you see here, I don't recommend this recipe. This recipe was submitted to the site in 2006. It was tested and photographed in July 2013.
