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 (4x6) 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?
