Favorite Granola

This is our favorite granola recipe, adapted from Alton Brown's recipe here:

3 cups rolled oats
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup pecans
1 cup shredded sweet coconut
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup (I usually put in a little extra)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup raisins

1. Preheat oven to 250.
2. Combine oats, nuts, coconut, and brown sugar.
3. Mix maple syrup, oil and salt in separate bowl until well combined, then add to the other bowl and mix evenly.
4. Pour onto sheet pans and cook for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes until evenly browned.
5. Add raisins after baking and store in airtight container.

I love eating this with fresh fruit for breakfast with a little bit of milk.
