Maple Roasted Granola

Today we have our sweet contributor, Jennifer from Blessed Femina, sharing a lovely recipe with us:
 

I just love homemade granola.... I love making it, eating it
and smelling it roasting in the oven.

So.... yesterday I decided to try a new recipe for granola
that dear Mrs.H had mentioned as being one of her
favorites....... courtesy of Elton Brown.

And I must say I was quite happy with the results.
I really liked the crunchy texture and the strong maple flavor
that this one had! Enjoy the recipe!!!

start by placing
3 cups rolled oats in a large bowl....

next add...
1 cup slivered almonds


1 cup unsalted cashews

3/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut

And....

1/4 cup plus 2 T. brown sugar

In a separate bowl....
combine

ummm..... maple syrup *sigh*

1/4 cup plus 2 T. maple syrup
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 tsp. salt

Pour this mixture into the oat mixture and
stir to combine...


Pour mixture onto
2 sheet pans.....

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Cook for an 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes....
stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.

Remove granola from oven and add 1 cup of raisins
and mix until evenly distributed.
...And there you have it....... you have just made some
real good, tasty granola.... Enjoy!!!



Hope all of you are having a wonderful week!!
Many Blessings!!!!!!
