Homemade Granola for Christmas Gifts

I thought homemade granola would make a good gift for teachers and neighbors. Jar, label, granola, fabric and ribbon, sweet and simple.

This is my sister Carley's recipe and it is DELISH!

1 C melted butter
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 C honey
1 1/2 C brown sugar
2 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp sea salt
6-8 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 c oat or wheat bran
1 1/2 c sunflower seeds
1 1/2 c coconut (flake unsweetened)
2 c each : walnuts, almonds and raisins (add raisins after baked)

Mix first 6 ingredients over the stove until they become like a syrup. Mix remaining dry ingredients (except raisins) in a BIG bowl, add wet and mix. Bake at 250 for 1 hr stirring every 15 minutes. Add raisins when cool. I used cranberries and almonds. This will make 16 cups.
