Mix the following ingredients together in a saucepan and bring to a boil:
1 cup butter
1 cup honey
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon cinnamon
In a large bowl, mix up the following dry ingredients:
11 cups rolled oats
1 cup chopped nuts and/or seeds (I like to use almonds!)
1 cup dried coconut
1 cup milled flax seed
Pour the hot syrup over the dry ingredients and mix well, until everything is coated. Spread the mixture onto two greased cookie sheets with sides. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 -30 minutes (stirring and rotating pans every 10 minutes).
When done baking, cool on pans, then stir in the following:
2 cups raisins
Transfer to a sealed storage container.
Note: You can see in the picture the tupperware cereal container I bought to store our granola in. It works wonderfully! This batch fills up the container (however as you can see in the picture, we are getting a little low!). It has a flip top lid so you can easily open it and pour some granola into your bowl!
