The Man of the House and I take turns making granola. Our recipes have subtle differences. You can see my granola recipe here. And here’s his recipe . . . .
3 Cups uncooked old fashioned oats
2/3 Cup walnuts
2/3 Cup almonds
2/3 Cup pecans
1 Cup raisins
½ Cup canola oil
½ Cup honey
½ Tsp vanilla
Put the oats in an ungreased casserole dish and place in the oven to toast at 325º.
Combine the oil, honey, and vanilla in a pan and warm over low heat (2 or 3 on an electric range).
While the oats are toasting and the honey/oil is warming, chop the nuts and add them to the honey/oil. Add the raisins. Stir well so that all the nuts and raisins are coated.
The oats should toast for at least 15 minutes, and the honey/oil should warm for at least 5 minutes after you add the last of the nuts and raisins. The honey/oil should mix completely and pour easily, but be careful not to let it boil.
Take the oats out of the oven and strain the honey/oil into the casserole. Thoroughly mix the oats so that all of them are coated, then add the nuts and raisins. Return to the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
