Honey Nut Granola - Slow Cooker Style

2 1/2 cups of rolled oats
3/4 cup raw almonds (divided in half)
Handful of crushed up walnuts-optional
1 tsp cinnamon
dash of salt
dash of nutmeg
1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup)
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon of brown sugar - optional
1 tsp vanilla

1. Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray then add oats.
2. Grind half of the almonds into fine crumbs in a blender/food processor then add to slow cooker.  Grind the rest into medium chunks and add to slow cooker.  I added some crushed up walnuts as well at this point. 
3. Sprinkle with cinnamon, salt, and a dash of nutmeg. Mix well. 
4. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave.  Then whisk in honey, vanilla and brown sugar.  Pour mixture over the oats and stir until evenly coated.
5. Leave the lid off slightly and cook granola for about 2 hours on low, stirring every 30 minutes until granola is evenly golden.  Then spread granola onto sheet of aluminum foil to cool.
