My sister-in-law Holley has gotten me addicted to this granola recipe from Alton Brown. It's the best granola I've ever had! She doesn't add the cashews or raisins and I don't either. Instead of maple syrup sometimes I use half agave nectar and half honey & it's really good that way too.
Recipe courtesy Alton Brown
Prep Time: 10 min Inactive Prep Time: -- Cook Time: 1 hr 15 min
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup cashews
3/4 cup shredded sweet coconut
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, and brown sugar.
In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, oil, and salt. Combine both mixtures and pour onto 2 sheet pans. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.
Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl. Add raisins and mix until evenly distributed.
