I made this granola for the first time three years ago.  I give it as gifts to friends at Christmas and I've needed to increase the amount I make each year.  This year I purchased five cases of glass Ball jars and had only two jars left over.  I add cinnamon and don't use the raisins; also, I use almonds, cashews and pecans.  Mmmmmm!!     Barbara H.
