Granola recipe

This is from a friend, so I am not the originator(though I doubt she will mind as I think she found it in tightwade gazette? but I could be wrong)

here you go (my notes in parentheses):
1) Heat the oven to 350.
2) Spray 2 (9x13) pans with Pam. (I used oil)
3) In a large bowl, mix the following dry ingredients:

10 C whole oats (NOT quick -but quick works just soft IMO)
dash of salt
freshly grated nutmeg(enough)
cinnamon(enough - maybe 1 t?)

I also include almonds and walnuts. You can add in whatever's around and what your family enjoys. For example, I don't add chocolate chips because we eat this for breakfast.

4) In a pot on the stove over medium-high heat, heat the following:

2/3 C honey (or other sweatner)
2/3 C oil (NOT olive oil - I use regular canola oil)
1 1/2 C brown sugar

5) Stir together to combine then heat over medium heat until just beginning to boil. Don't stir this too much while it's heating. Then, stir really well and add to the dry ingredients.

IMPORTANT: STIR WELL. Really well. This might take more than 5 seconds. Embarrassment) You want to make sure that the oatmeal is no longer dry or your final product will be less than wonderful.

5) Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 - 12 minutes or until it's a nice golden brown color.

6) Put the granola back in the original bowl and add raisins (enough)

IMPORTANT: STIR WELL. As it cools, this stuff gets sticky! You want to stir it enough during the first 30 minutes after baking so that it cools evenly and not in huge clumps. If you don't do this step, you'll regret it later! Embarrassment) (Yep, one big clump in the bowl right now, but still good when you chip it off)

This is actually a double batch, so I halved it for playing.
