homemade granola

today, i made a big batch
of really delicious granola.
it's so easy,
and so much more affordable
than even granola from the bulk bins.

i read through these granola recipes:

then adapted the batch to our tastes
and what we had on hand.

my ingredients
4 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 cups chopped pecans
2 cups sliced almonds
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
couple pinches of salt
3/4 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons vanilla
add about halfway through baking:
1/2 cup shredded coconut {sweetened}
1/2 cup shredded coconut {unsweetened}
add at the end of baking
{bake just a few minutes}:
2 cups golden raisins

my method
preheat oven to 250°

in a big roasting pan,
mix dry ingredients,
then add wet ingredients.

bake for 30 minutes to an hour
stirring often {every 10 minutes},
watching for browning,
& testing as you go.
my 'test' is to scoop out a small spoonful,
then allow to cool.
once the granola is crunchy when cool,
it's done.

store in an airtight container.
