Cinnamon Raisin Granola

We got this recipe from a family in China that made it for us and it was like liquid gold there. Getting home a lot of the things we thought were so good there turned out to be not so awesome in comparison, except this one. It is a good one and is often made at out house.
This batch doesn't have any nuts in it and is taste but it is even better with nuts in it.

Cinnamon Raisin Granola
4 cups Old Fashioned Oats (I use quick oats and it is still good)
1 cup shredded coconut (sometimes I go a little heavy on the coconut)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup raisins (I haven't ever made a batch with raisin... so attempt at your own risk :) )

In a large bowl combine oats and coconut and nuts
In a sauce pan combine brown sugar, oil, honey, and cinnamon. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat add vanilla.
Mix oat mixture and sauce until evenly coated then spread in a large shallow baking dish aka cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees from 15-20 minutes stirring every 5 minutes

Cool add raisins and store in an air tight container.

  2. I make a double batch of granola every few weeks and just ran out yesterday so I'm making this today. Yummy!

  3. Mom made some this last weekend and it was amazing.

  4. Look yummy. I bought cereal with cherries in it. I wonder if they could replace raisins. It is very good.
