Alton Brown's Granola
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup cashews
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
1 cup raisins
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.
ok, I made some last night, YUMMMMY - but too sweet so tonight I made it again and didn't put any of the brown sugar in it (oh yea and added sunflower seeds, and no raisins)
ummmm warm right out of the oven is best! and addictive.
So its packed up ready for the road.
AND we are going to the OCEAN, and going right thru Forks, that's right folks, Forks is only a little over an hour from where we live. And apparently its Edwards birthday celebration this weekend! (ah what that little - -and I MEAN little-- town won't do for tourists). I'll take lots of photos with my fancy shmancy camera and show them Monday! Right now I'm too busy eating warm granola, mmmmm
