Place all dry ingredients in the crock pot. Stir with a wooden spoon. Add Egg white and stir again. If you like your granola clumpy, you can ball up some, but if you like it finer, break up the clumps.
Put cover on crock and set for 4 hours on high.
Check at three hours later to stir. You will have accumulated moisture on your lid. Keep it from falling back into the granola. Leave the lid off for the remaining hour. Test for crunchiness!
Separate into 1/4 cup individual bags or store in an air-tight container.
I add 1/4 cup or less to a little yogurt or I might put a couple of teaspoons over my spiced apples.
I have used 85 % dark chocolate, dried cranberries, fresh apple and pecans as add-ins or substitutions at various times. I prefer the dried fruit to be added in the last hour, as I find it becomes too dry. Fresh fruit is moist and requires a much longer cooking time. The dark chocolate was best added in late, in my opinion; however, my daughter preferred the chocolate-coated oats.
