Crock pot honey nut granola is a great way to start the day. My kids are always running out the door in the morning when they are headed off to work. So I decided to make them something that they can take with them. I place 1/2 cup of this granola in each baggy and they can grab one, and some yogurt, on their way out the door.
I guess that we need sleep more than we need food? Or maybe we just do not plan enough time for food, and so breakfast gets skipped. It is rather hard to think up a great breakfast when you only have 5 minutes or you are already 10 minutes late.
Why would I want to make Granola in a crock pot instead of the oven?
The simple and short answer is: because it is so much easier!!! You don’t have to watch it so carefully to keep it from burning and you don’t have to turn it on a cookie sheet. I love making Crock Pot Honey Nut Granola, and I’m pretty sure that you will too!
Can I substitute ingredients in this Crock Pot Honey Nut Granola?
You could use chocolate chunks or a variety of dried fruits such as cranberries, raisins, dried pineapple or dried mangos. Nuts, such as almonds, cashews, peanuts and pecans could be substituted in your granola as well. This granola is very versatile and you can use what you like, to make it the way you want it. That is one of the best things about it!
