Homemade Holiday Gift: Slow Cooker Granola (Free Printable)

  • Cooking Time:

    2 hours on High
  • Servings:



5 c. old fashioned, rolled oats
3/4 c. raw honey
3/4 c. butter, melted
1 T. flax seeds
3/4 c. of your favorite seeds & nuts (slivered almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, etc.)
1/4 c. unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)
1/2 c. raisins, dried cranberries or chocolate chips

Sometimes a homemade thank you and a thoughtful gesture is all that someone needs to know they are appreciated.

Last year I started making homemade granola to give as gifts. This way I don’t have to leave anyone out or break the bank when buying presents. As a bonus, my 5 year-old daughter helps me make the granola and she learns about the spirit of giving as well. While we make the granola we talk about all the special people in our lives and how they help us every day…. the mail carrier, the crossing guard at school (who often gets overlooked around the holidays!), teachers and administration at school, Daisy Scout leader, etc. The point being, it helps us reflect on all the love we have in our lives.

I’m passing along this new family tradition to you. I hope you enjoy making and giving this granola too. Below you will find the easy recipe as well as a free printable (4×6) recipe card to give along with your granola gifts.

Slow Cooker Granola:

  1. Assemble all dry ingredients, and add to a 4 quart or larger crock.
  2. Melt butter in microwave or on stovetop and stir in honey until well combined.
  3. Pour honey-butter over oat mixture in crock.
  4. Toss to coat well.
  5. Cover but keep lid cracked to allow steam to escape.
  6. Crock on HIGH 2 hours, stirring often. (it can burn if you don’t stir enough)
  7. Keep an eye on the granola to make sure it is not burning!
  8. Spread granola out on cookie sheets to cool then store in an air-tight container.
  9. Makes about 7 cups of granola. (21 – 1/3 cup servings)

This recipe looks very good, however in the recipe there isn’t any oil listed. In the printable card you have oil listed. If oil is in the recipe when do you add it?
