Prep time:  15 minutes
Cook time:  30 minutes
Serves:  12

8 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
3 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup mixed nuts, chopped

12 x 9 x 1 1/2 inch (30 x 23 x 4 cm) baking pan
parchment paper
wooden spoon

1.  Preheat the oven to 300*F (150*C).  Grease your baking pan, then line it with 2 sheets of parchment paper.

2.  Melt the butter, sugar and maple syrup (or honey) in a saucepan over low heat.

3.  Place all the other ingredients in a large bowl and pour in the sugar mixture.

4.  Spread the mixture evenly in the baking pan and, using a masher, press it down firmly so it sticks together.  Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

5.  When the granola bars are baked, let them cool for 5 minutes.  Then, using a cloth to hold the pan, cut them into 12 squares.  Remove them from the pan when fully cooled and firm.
