Homemade Cinnamon Blueberry Granola

This Cinnamon Blueberry Granola is easy to make at home with the kids and has great cinnamon flavor without being overly sweet.  Perfect for fall and the new school year.

You may have noticed that I’ve been on a granola kick lately with my Cherry Macadamia Nut Granola on It’s A Keeper and the Tropical Granola I shared earlier this year.

What can I say, it’s easy to make-even with the kids-and it’s way cheaper than the granola I buy at the store. I like that I get to control what goes into it so I can make sure that it isn’t too sweet or filled with anything I don’t want.

Plus you can use it over ice cream, yogurt, in a parfait, or as cereal. So make sure to go check out all the different variations!

Can I make this in the slow cooker?

You can make this during warm months without heating up your kitchen by using a slow cooker.

If you go with this method of cooking make sure to grease the sides of the slow cooker really well and cook on high for 2 hours. Stir every 20-30 minutes until toasted and a light brown color.
