Recipe of the week: savory slow cooker granola

Recipe of the week: savory slow cooker granola

 

 

Granola “baked” in a slow cooker comes out toasted and crisp, and keeps delicate nuts and seeds from overcooking. This recipe is made without refined sweeteners—just a little applesauce is added—for a savory rather than a sweet cereal. You can top it with honey, brown sugar or your favorite sweetener in the bowl if you like, or just enjoy it with fresh fruit.  This recipe makes about six cups.
