Homemade granola

This is one of my favorite recipes!!!  Our whole family gobbles it up.  It may not be entirely healthy by the time you get done with it, but it's got all the good stuff!

6 cups rolled oats
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup water

Heat oven to 250 degrees.  Slightly grease two baking pans (I line mine with aluminum foil first).  Mix all of your ingredients together and spread the granola evenly over the two pans.  Here's the icing on the cake;  drizzle with more honey.  Bake for 1 hour, tossing every 15 min.  Cool and store in airtight container.

There are so many variations to this recipe.  You can add any seeds, nuts, dried fruits, superfoods, nutritional supplements.  If the texture of the granola isn't to your liking, there are lots of other baking times and degrees you can try.  However you make it, you really can't go wrong!
