Crunchy Granola

Granola

Rather than adding dried fruit to the granola when it's done drying, I add it in as I'm serving it. So many dried fruits can be mixed in: cranberries, pineapple, apricots, raisins, whatever you are in the mood for.

Crunchy Granola

INGREDIENTS
1/2 c honey
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c oil
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp vanilla

2 c chopped nuts and seeds ex. walnuts, pecans, almonds, sunflower seeds
6 c rolled oats
3/4 c wheat germ

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 250.
Mix honey, brown sugar, oil, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger in medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
Remove from heat, stir in vanilla.
Mix together oats, nuts, seeds, and wheat germ.
Pour over sugar mixture, mix together well.
Pour evenly into 2 jelly roll pans.
Place pans in oven for 40 minutes, stirring occassionally.
Turn off oven and leave the pans in the oven overnight.
Place in airtight containers in the morning.
