Granola Mix recipe
or other dried fruit
Preheat oven to 300℉ (150℃).
In a large bowl combine oats, wheat germ, coconut, sunflower seeds, sesame seed and nuts ( can include almonds, pecans, walnuts, or a combination of all of them).
In a large saucepan combine brown sugar, water, oil, honey, molasses, salt, cinnamon and vanilla.
Heat until sugar is dissolved, but do not boil.
Pour the syrup over the dry ingredients and stir until well-coated.
Spread onto five 13 X 9-inch baking pans, or cookie sheets with sides.
Bake 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Bake 15 minutes longer for crunchier texture.
Add raisins or other dried fruit, if desired.
Put in airtight containers and label as Granola mix.
Store in a cool dry place and use within 6 months.
