Homemade Granola


½ cup vegetable oil
1 cup honey
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
10 cups rolled oats
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup flax seed
2 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. kosher salt
2 cups raisins


• Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.

• In a large stockpot, warm the oil, honey and vanilla extract over low heat, stirring until combined and viscous.

• Remove from the heat and add the rolled oats, wheat germ, flax seed cinnamon and salt. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon, evenly coating the oat mixture with the oil-honey mixture.

• Divide the mixture between 2 sheet pans and spread it evenly. Bake 25 minutes, stirring and rotating the trays halfway through.

• Let cool, then stir in the raisins. Granola will keep at room temperature in zip-top bags for several weeks.
