  1. Spray the sides of slow cooker with cooking spray. Add all ingredients to slow cooker and stir to combine well.
  2. Turn slow cooker on high and cook for 2 to 2 ½ hours. Stirring every 30 minutes to prevent burning on the sides.
  3. Pour the granola onto a large cookie sheet and let it cool completely. (I did this overnight.)  The granola will get crunchy as it cools.  If adding dried fruit add now! 
  4. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place. Granola will be good as long as nuts stay good, so store it in a cool place!
