Homemade Granola

My husband has always called me a cereal killer because I can polish off a box of cereal in no time.  I could eat cereal for breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, well, you get the point.  Unfortunately, though, the cost of a box of cereal these days has made me think twice about throwing it into my cart.  I have started making homemade granola and eating it as my cereal.  I have had this recipe for some time, and don't remember where I originally obtained it.  I have made modifications to suit my taste.  You can do so as well.

Homemade Granola

6 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup raisins
1 cup honey
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients together.  Note that this will be a very dry and stiff mixture, so either mix by hand with a large wooden spoon or use a high powered mixer with a cookie paddle.  Cook spread as thin as possible at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.  Store in an airtight container.

    I use brown sugar in mine, and I bet you could do a combination of both if you wanted!
