Years ago after enjoying some homemade muesli in Sweden, I came home and experimented with granola recipes until I came up with my own delicious version which I named Franola.

1.  Pour oil, honey, and dark Karo syrup into 16-oz. glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in microwave just to warm and liquefy, about one minute at full power.

2.  In a large bowl, stir together oats, nuts, seeds, and coconut (raisins will be added later). Pour liquid mixture over dry ingredients. Stir really well to coat oat mixture. Make sure you keep turning over oats that are on the bottom of the bowl. It will appear as though there is not enough liquid to cover, but there really is.

3.  Cover 2 large, 17"x12", rimmed cookie sheets with aluminum foil and spray with Pam. If you do not have an oven large enough to accommodate the 17"x12" cookie sheets, you will need to use smaller cookie sheets and cook them in two batches following the same directions as for the larger cookie sheets.

4.  Spread oat mixture over the cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15 minutes on staggered oven shelves (one shelf positioned in upper third of the oven and one shelf positioned in lower third of the oven. For even baking, reverse the cookie sheets halfway through the bake time. Stir the mixture 2 or 3 times during baking. Do not overbake.

5.  Cool on racks and stir the mixture on the cookie sheets while cooling to cut down on clumping. When cool, add raisins and store in airtight container.

Cooks' note:
Franola makes a great gift for neighbors and teachers at Christmas time!
