Expert Tips

This recipe has had me back in the testing kitchen several times.When I tested this recipe at first, the granola on the edges started to burn. Eventually, I figured out a way to keep the granola in tact and delicious.

foil cake pan for slow cooker

Use a foil pan that will mold to whatever shape your crockpot is (mine is oval). The cake foil pan is deep enough to hold the granola and form a barrier between the hot sides of the slow cooker and the delicate granola.

The day that I tested this recipe, I cooked it for nine hours and checked on the granola all day long. There was not even a little hint of them burning. The foil barrier is a success. As you can see the granola bits are dark golden, but that is due to the melted butter and brown sugar caramelization.

More Tips and  Tricks for this Slow Cooker Apple Granola Breakfast:

make sure all of the granola is safely at the bottom of the foil pan so it has a buffer between it and the hot sides of the slow cooker

this is not necessary, but you can add some apple juice for extra moisture to the inside of the pan or even at the bottom of the slow cooker

cook on high for a quick breakfast or slowly for 6-8 hours

Notes

Adjusting the time period to cook longer – you can cook on low for 6-8 hours
