This easy granola is perfect for the colder months and will make your house smell of toasted pecans, maple syrup and cinnamon! Top it off with chopped dates for added sweetness.
Preparing granola in the slow cooker is an easier method than in the oven since it is less likely to burn the granola. The added hemp and chia seeds will provide extra protein.
I did not make this in the slow cooker, I baked it in the oven at 325 convection for 35 minutes. It's really nice, not TOO maple-y and will be a great topper for our morning yogurt or as a cereal. Thanks for the recipe! - 11 Feb 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Since there's only 1 review so far, this must be new. (Interesting that the only review did not follow the directions and baked it in the oven! Oh well.) One question: when do you add the dates? They are listed in the ingredients and never mentioned again... Perhaps someone can correct this. - 13 Sep 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is pretty good. I baked it like the first reviewer as well, about 45 minutes in a regular oven at 350. Flavor was good. Definitely will make again. - 21 Sep 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
