  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine oats and almonds in a medium bowl.  In a small saucepan, combine honey, molasses, water, vegetable oil and cinnamon.  Heat through, stirring for about 1 minute.  Pour over oat mixture and stir to blend.  Spread on a baking sheet and toast, stirring every 10 minutes until golden-crisp, about 30 minutes.  Remove from oven and add raisins.  Cool completely before serving.  Store in an airtight container for up to three weeks in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
