The Best Granola

3 cups rolled oats
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup cashews
3/4 cup shredded sweet coconut
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup raisins or dried cherries or dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. In a bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, and brown sugar. In a small bowl, combine maple syrup, oil, and salt. Combine both mixtures and pour onto 2 jelly roll pans. (It works ok with one pan too!) Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color. Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl. Add raisins and mix until evenly distributed.
