Granola (Original Post 8/26/07)

I got this idea when I was watching Alton Brown’s Good Eats, which used to be on Food Network. Sadly, that show is no longer around, but his books are! I made this and took it camping one year and it is easily changed up with all different kinds of things you can add.

3 C. Rolled Oats
1 C. slivered almonds
1 C. Cashews
1/4 C. plus 2 TBS dark brown sugar
1/4 C. plus 2 TBS maples syrup
1/4 C. melted butter
3/4 tsp. salt
1 C. raisins

Preheat oven to 250 degrees
In a large bowl , combine the oats, nuts, and brown sugar. In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, butter, and salt. Combine both mixtures and pour onto 2 sheet pans. Cook for one hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve even color. Remove from oven and transfer to a large bowl. Add raisins and mix until evenly distributed.
