I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.

So I love me a good crock pot recipe, but I'm wondering about the texture of this granola opposed to baking it in the oven. Aren't crock pots all about sealing in the moisture and stuff? Is the granola dry and crunchy at all? I just see this ending in a crockpot full of oatmeal mush. lol Unless you don't put on the lid or something? More details on this would  be awesome! Smiley Thanks.

Yup... TOTALLY doing this this weekend!  Gotta grab some nuts but I have all sorts of dried fruits and my cupboards are never w/o rolled oats and honey  Grin.  I've been looking for crockpot recipes too so I'm super stoked about trying this out!!  I think I'll be grabbing chopped/sliced almonds and then using raisins, dried cranberries, chopped apricots and probably grab some of that flax meal... yum yum!

<-------------- no mush here Wink  Actually it's very nice dry and chewy/crunchy...just like stuff you would cook in the oven...the batch I made is. I'm actually, since I have sooo "munch" (I couldn't help myself  Grin) and I made it with the quick oats...I'm gonna try to make oatmeal cookies with some of it! Cool

for one thing-wow-I have been lurking on this site for so long that I'm surprised I could even remember my log-in name!

I'm very interested in this recipe but have a couple of quick questions.

1.  How much does this recipe yield?  If you mentioned it in the OP then I apologize for asking.   I did see a mention of freezing some so that makes me hopeful that it's a bunch.

2.  not counting the variables (the fruits, I guess)-roughly what is the price of the ingredients?  (Okay-honestly...what does Flax Seed run?)

Sorry for the annoying questions but I am soooo budget conscious that I have to know before I allow myself to imagine my house filled with this delicious smell!!

Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry! I forgot that you need to vent the lid!  Embarrassed  I did it with a wooden spoon but you can do it with an old chopstick or what have you.  Geeeeez. Updating the first post now.

Ugh again I'm going to be totally useless but I'm going to try Cheesy

1.  How much does this recipe yield?  If you mentioned it in the OP then I apologize for asking.   I did see a mention of freezing some so that makes me hopeful that it's a bunch.

I didn't measure it once it was done but it doesn't cook down a lot.  There's 6-7 cups of granola maybe? For me it will last a long time. I've already had it for breakfast with yogurt twice, the boy has had two bowls of it as cereal, and we've probably had about a bowlful during our nibbling.  There's still a ton left.

2.  not counting the variables (the fruits, I guess)-roughly what is the price of the ingredients?  (Okay-honestly...what does Flax Seed run?)

(Disclaimer: I go to Trader Joe's... so.. I dunno how that translates to where you go!) I don't know where my receipt is offhand but the flaxseed was only $3-4. I only used a Tablespoon, too so there is almost a full bag left.  So you could either not buy it, or buy it and find a bunch of other good recipes for it.  The blueberries were expensive! $5 something although I didn't use the whole bag. Cheaper alternatives would be raisins or cranberries (I love cranberries but the boy doesn't so we had to settle on expensive blueberries).  Oats are cheap, but this uses pretty much the whole container (I think, I used what I had and I can't remember using any previously).  If you don't already have things like vanilla and cinnamon they will seem pricey but they last a long time.

I hope that helps some!  Undecided
