  • 2 1⁄2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1⁄4 cup ground flaxseeds
  • 3⁄4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1⁄2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 3⁄4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1⁄3 cup coconut oil
  • 1⁄4 cup honey
  • 1⁄2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon


  • Mix all ingredients together and place in a greased 4- to 5-quart slow cooker.
  • Cover slow cooker and vent with a wooden spoon handle or a chopstick. Cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 8 hours, stirring every hour.
  • When granola is toasty and done, pour it onto a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Spread the granola out evenly over the entire sheet of parchment paper. Allow granola to cool and dry for several hours.
  • Once cooled, break granola up and place in an airtight container or a tightly sealed glass jar and store in pantry for up to 1 month. For longer storage, keep granola in freezer for up to 6 months.
