    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.

Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl.

  • Incredible!
    love this recipe! The only issue I have with it is that I measured out 8 one cup servings, so the calorie count is off. One cup is 504 calories, about .75 of a serving - 5/5/10

    Thank you so much for putting this up! I just ate 1/4 cup of this amazing granola, and then typed into Google to find the calories, and it of course is on SparkPeople!
    Best home made granola ever!
