Slow Cooker Granola Bars


Granola Bars

Even if a snack is healthy, it doesn’t have to taste that way. Oats and dried fruit come together for this crunchy, slightly sweet granola: the perfect addition to yogurt and ice cream, and a great snack on its own. If you want extra crunch, add some chopped nuts.


  • 4 Cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 Cup sunflower kernels
  • 1 Cup flaked coconut
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • ½ Cup canola oil
  • ½ Cup honey
  • 2 Cups chopped dried fruit (pineapples, mangos, and apricots work great)


In a 3-quart slow cooker, combine oats, sunflower kernels, coconut, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk oil and honey until well blended. Stir into oats mixture and cook on high for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes. When done cooking, spread granola on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and let cool. Once cooled, stir in dried fruit, cut into bars, and store in airtight containers.
