Slow Cooker Cinnamon Raisin Granola made in your instant pot/slow cooker is packed with fiber, protein, and all natural delicious ingredients!

Wow, it’s been a minute, hasn’t it? It seems like every week since before Christmas something has come up and I just haven’t quite been able to get into posting new recipes again! The majority of my blog designated time has been going to an ultra exciting project that I can’t wait to share with you. It’s a 30 Day Costco Freezer Meal Plan for the Pressure Cooker! Wooo woo!! I can’t even tell you how pumped I am to wrap up work on it and get it out to you guys!

Okay, one of the funniest things about being all in on the Instant Pot life is my husband’s ability to sell the IP wherever he goes. He’s been known to convince people on airplanes, at work parties, church, everywhere that their lives simply are NOT complete without an Instant Pot. One of the biggest selling points he touches on, and I totally agree with, is the ability to get rid of your slow cooker since the function comes with the IP. Why have 2, 3, 4 bulky appliances when you only need one? We can all afford to do a little Marie Kondo’ing, right??

Anyways, if you’ve been around Kitschen Cat for some time, you’ll notice that I post mainly pressure cooker recipes, but I’m starting to think that’s a bit silly because the Instant Pot has the fabulous slow cooker setting as well, so why not use it more? For most dishes, you can choose to either slow cook or pressure cook and you’ll get the same result. For things like this Slow Cooker Cinnamon Raisin Granola, however, that don’t have enough liquid and need to be cooked in a more roasty (not steamy) environment, the slow cook setting is the way to go.

This granola is the type of situation that can mixed and matched depending on what’s in your pantry. I bought a bunch of raisins for our little guy last week and he immediately poo poo’d them, so I decided it was time to make a batch of delicious cinnamon raisin granola! I used walnuts and maple syrup, but those are the types of things you can substitute out. Any dried fruits, nuts, sweeteners will do the job perfectly. You can keep all of the measurements the same and do a 1:1 substitution on the liquids or dry ingredients!

Happy munching!
