Some girlfriends and I made this the other night and it was so delicious! I can't wait to make it again. Warning: it makes A TON of granola...

10 c. Oats
1 c. Wheat Germ
1/2 lb. shredded coconut
2 c. raw sunflower seeds
1 c. sesame seeds
3 c. almonds, pecans, walnuts (chopped)
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. water
1 1/2 c. vetetable oil
1 1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. molasses
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
3 tsp. vanilla
Any dried fruit (we had craisins, raisins, dried mango and dried pineapple)
-In a large bowl, combine oats, wheat germ, coconut, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and nuts.
-In a large saucepan, combine brown sugar, water, oil, honey, molasses, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Heat until sugar dissolves, but don't boil.
-Pour syrup over dry ingredients and stir until well-coated. Spread into five 13x9 cookie sheets with sides. Cook at 300 degrees, 20-30 minutes.
-Add fruit after taking it out of the oven and enjoy!
-If you want it crunchier, let it sit out for a few hours.
