Slow-Cooker Flax & Coconut Granola

Most Americans fall well below the recommended 25-35 grams of dietary fiber daily. Since 2 tablespoons of flaxseeds have 4 grams of dietary fiber, they can help you reach that goal. Boosting fiber can be as simple as mixing in 2 to 4 tablespoons of ground flaxseeds into your favorite granola. Total Time: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 3-1/2 hours + cooling. Makes 6 cups.


  • 4 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
