Panera Granola Recipe

I looked for this recipe on-line and found one. The problem was it was not complete. Several parts where missing. So after getting almost finished with the recipe I noticed that a few items were not in the directions I had to alter it a little. Hey it turned out pretty good. Here is the orginal recipe I found. Below is what I made. I am pretty pleased with it myself.

18oz package of old-fashioned oats
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup maple Syrup
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup raisins ( optional)
Preheat oven to 300 F. In a bowl mix the oats, pecans, brown sugar, coconut, salt and cinnamon. In a saucepan warm the syrup, oil and honey. Whisk in vanilla. Carefully pour the liquid over the oat mixture. Stir gently with spoon. Spread granola on 2 baking sheets. Bake 50 minutes, stirring carefully every 10 minutes. (Granola will be still wet, it will harden when as it cools)Transfer granola-filled pan to a rack to cool completely. Stir in raisins (optional). Seal granola in an airtight container or self-sealing plastic bag. Store at room temperature for 1 week or in the freezer for 3 months.

Mix with Fresh fruit and organic yogurt. Enjoy
