recipe wednesday- granola (a day late)

Well sweet Ej has another bug, so I am a little preoccupied right now. However I still wanted to get this recipe up! It is Alton Brown's and I LOVE it!

3 cups rolled oats
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup cashews (I used pecans and walnuts, chopped)
3/4 cup shredded sweet coconut
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 teaspoon salt (this makes it a bit salty especially for cereal. I like to use less)
1 cup raisins (I didn't use raisins in mine)
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, and brown sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, oil, and salt. Combine both mixtures and pour onto 2 sheet pans. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.

Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl. Add raisins and mix until evenly distributed.
(I double the recipe every time and it lasts me a month. I love granola with yogurt in the morning!)
