Chunky Granola

5 c. rolled oats (not quick cooking)
3 c. mix-ins (nuts, fruit, coconut)
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. honey
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 T. vanilla

Combine oil, honey, sugar, salt, vanilla.  Stir in rolled oats and mix-ins. Use large baking sheet covered with parchment paper and preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Spread mixture evenly over baking sheet and press down.  Bake for 30 mins, rotating pan halfway through.  Remove and allow granola to cool for an hour before breaking it up into chunks.

*I baked for 35 mins, and some of the raisins were a little overdone.  Also, the granola was slightly crunchy but chewy in some areas.  Still delicious.  Next time I might try to add the raisins halfway through baking.
