However, I have never made granola before, so I searched on several of my fave sites for a good, easy recipe. Not a single one had the ingredients I did, so I looked around and decided to learn the method and make my own recipe.
Groovy Granola1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup margarine
1 small (18 oz) box oatmeal
1-2 cups raisins
1-2 cups coconut
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. First warm the honey in a small sauce pan and wisk the margarine into it. Once you have it all mixed together, add in the coconut and let it cook for about 1 minute. While this is cooking, pour the box of oatmeal onto a cookie sheet. Pour all of the honey mixture over the oatmeal and stir it around (after a minute or so it will cool off and you can work it together with your hands.) Put the raisins in and mix in well. Cook in the oven for 45 mins to an hour, stirring every 10-15 minutes. Put in jars and give in gifts, or put into a airtight container and keep it for yourself. Eat like cereal or by the handful.
Most of the recipes I saw added raisins in after cooking, but I wanted mine to have the honey flavor, too. It turned out so good that I am going to make a batch to keep! YUMMY!
