Granola II

If you like big chunks this granola is a great one.

2 cups extra thick rolled oats
1 cup rolled barley, spelt or quinoa
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I like chopping them extra fine were 1/2 turn into a flour consistancy)
1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional)
1/4 cup unbleached white flour
1/4 cup dried milk
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup rasins

In a large bowl combine rolled grains, nuts, coconut, flour, cinnamon and salt. In a small saucepan warm the oil, honey and brown sugar until brown sugar is mostly dissolved (low heat about 3 minutes). Pour wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and blend well. Lay out on a cookie sheet with edges. Bake for 25 minutes @ 325 degrees stirring every 10 minutes. (Don't over cook) After 25 minutes remove from oven and add raisins (or any other dried fruit you like in your granola) and let sit. The granola will begin to harden after sitting. Make sure you stir after 5 minutes of sitting or it begins to stick to your pan (not fun). Enjoy!
