Granola Recipe

Way back in July of 2008, when I was a very new blogger, I printed a post that included my favorite Granola recipe. I have had so many ask how to make this recipe, that I thought I would repost again.
Mix in large bowl:
10 C. old fashioned rolled oats
1 C. wheat germ
1/2 lb. coconut
2 C. raw sunflower seeds
1 C. sesame seeds
3 C. chopped nuts ( I use the almonds and pecans from Costco)
In a large saucepan combine 1 1/2 C. brown sugar, 1 1/2 water, 1 1/2 veg. oil, 1/2 C. honey, 1/2 C. molasses, 1 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. cinnamon, and 3 tsp. vanilla
Warm until sugar is dissolved, but not boiling.
Pour over dry mix. Stir until well coated. Spread out on 2 cookie sheets. (I coat mine with a spray of Pam). Cook 45 minutes at 300 degrees. Do not stir. ** You can add dried fruit if you want. Let cool and place in zip lock bags or storage container.

Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Add the sauce ingredients in a large pan on the stove.
One of the things I like about this recipe is there are very few steps. You don't even need to stir the granola during the cooking process. When I take it out of the oven, I let the granola cool on the cookie sheets, then place in large Ziplock bags.
I often give granola as a gift at Christmas time, for birthday's and it's always a hit at quilt retreats.

Years ago I made granola. Love it! My problem is I ate it all day long. Your recipe sounds great. Wonder if I have more self-disciple now. I'll have to make a batch and see:)
