Raisin Walnut Granola

3 cups oats-old fashioned or quick cooking, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/3 cup veg. oil, 1/4 cup honey, 1 tbsp. vanilla extract, 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, 1/3 shredded coconut, 1/3 cup raisins.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all ingredients except raisins in a mixing bowl.  Spread mixture on a cookie sheet.  Bake mixture for 15 min. stirring once in the middle of cooking. Remove granola from oven, stir.  Let cool for a few min.  Add raisins and stir to combine.  When cooled moved to an airtight container.

I got the original recipe for this from theprudenthomemaker.com.  I have changed it some to suit our tastes.

Oatmeal Pie

2 eggs beaten, 2/3 cup sugar, 2/3 cup uncooked oatmeal (I prefer old-fashioned oats but quick cooking will work as well) 1 tsp. vanilla, 2/3 cup melted margarine, 2/3 cup corn syrup, 1/4 tsp. salt.

Mix all ingredients together and pour into uncooked pie shell.  Bake at 350 degrees for about l hr.  Tastes very similar to pecan pie.
