Cinnamon Raisin Granola

You know the Quaker Granola you can buy at Costco in the cereal aisle? The one that comes in a bag? The one I want to rip into the moment I see it and pour a half gallon of milk inside and then dump in my face? Yeah, this isn't that stuff. I mean, it's good and all, but I kind of like that I don't gain 20 pounds just by looking at it. It's super easy to make and just delicious with milk, yogurt and fruit(my fav!), or just plain by the handful. It travels really well (I even took it on a girls trip to Colorado), and stores for 2-3 weeks. I also like that it uses regular ingredients that I always have on hand. I've quadrupled it and it's still stellar.

4 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup shredded coconut
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. honey
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. raisins

In a large bowl, combine oats and coconut, set aside.
In a saucepan, combine brown sugar, oil, honey, and cinnamon; bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour over oat mixture; stir to coat. Spread in a large shallow baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees, 15-20 min, stirring occassionally. Cool. Add raisins. Store in an airtight container.
