Since my husband has been working from home, he grabs a bowl of cereal every so often. He had eaten all that I had, so Kathleen decided to make granola. We were out of some ingredients from our regular recipe, so she tried this recipe, worrying that Don wouldn't like it since it had rosemary in it. He LOVES it! It is good!

GUY FIERI --Food Network

4 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats, not quick
1 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup golden raisins (we used regular raisins)
2 tablespoons molasses
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup canola oil (we used vegetable oil)
3 teaspoons finely minced rosemary leaves
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 cup dried cranberries
Nonstick cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, except cranberries, stirring well to combine. Lightly grease a sheet pan with nonstick spray, or use parchment paper. Spread mixture evenly on sheet pan and place in oven. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring every 7 minutes. Let cool on rack and add dried cranberries. When completely cool, store in airtight container for up to 1 week.
