This is straight from The Tightwad Gazette. We like our granola sweet so this works perfectly for us especially over homemade yogurt :)
Mix 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup veggie oil and 1/3 cup honey in saucepan and heat until sugar is melted.
Combine 5 cups oatmeal, 1/2 cup dry milk, 3/4 tsp cinnamon and a pinch of salt in a cake pan. I used a bowl to make mixing easier and then moved it to a cake pan.
Pour sugar mixture over dry mixture and mix well.
Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Let cool in pan. Store in airtight container.
I doubled the recipe and cooked it longer so mine is a little darker than it really should be but it's still great! I didn't add raisins at all but I'll include the directions for it.
