Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 ½ cups brown rice cereal, see notes
  • ¼ cup raw, whole almonds
  • 2 egg whites
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup pistachios
  • Cooking spray

Instructions
 

  • Coat crock pot with cooking spray.
  • Mix the egg whites, honey, vanilla and cinnamon together. Add the oats, brown rice cereal and almonds. Mix until well coated.
  • Pour in Crock Pot and leave the lid off about a centimeter. This is critical to keep the granola from getting soggy.
  • Cook on high for 2 hours until cooked. Leave in longer for crunchier granola and the exact cooking time may vary depending on how hot your Crock Pot gets. Stir gently every 30 minutes to get from burning.
  • Pour Granola on a baking sheet and gently stir in the coconut, white chocolate chips, dried cranberries and pistachios.

Notes

Packaged granola has a touch of salt in it, so if you like that flavor you can add a pinch to the oats!
When you stir, be careful to not break up all the clumps!
You can find brown rice cereal in the healthy/gluten free section of the grocery store. It's puffed brown rice instead of white. If you can't find brown rice cereal, feel free to sub white puffed rice cereal. Look for one without any added sugar. You don't need it here.
