Cinnamon Granola

Whether you eat it as a cereal, a part of your parfait, or by the handful, this granola is a delicious way to fill you up in the morning!

3 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup slivered almonds
2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup apple juice
3 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp canola oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 300°
Combine the oats, almonds, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Set aside.
Next, combine the apple juice, honey, brown sugar, and canola oil in a small saucepan, and cook until the honey is dissolved. Add the vanilla and salt to the mixture.
Drizzle the apple juice mixture over the oats, and mix just until moistened.
Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Spread the oat mixture evenly on the large baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. Stir well, and then bake an additional 5-10 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and stir in raisins. Cool completely, and then store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
