Homemade Granola

We love granola at our house so I started looking for an easy granola recipe.  I found several that I liked but tweeked them to my taste.  Here is what I came up with:

3 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup nuts(your choice but we are partial to walnuts)
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup honey or 1/2 cup sugar in the raw
1/2 cup of wheat germ
1/2 cup raisins or craisins
1/2 cup chopped dates

Melt butter and add honey.  Add oats,wheat germ, sunflower seeds, nuts and coconut into a large bowl. Mix all together then add melted butter and honey. Stir together then pour onto a greased pan.

Bake at 250 for 40-45 minutes stirring every 15 minutes until golden brown.  Let oat/nut mixture cool then add raisins, craisins, and dates. Keep in a sealed container.  Use within 3 weeks.  Perfect with milk for cereal or to eat with yogurt. 

Crunchy Blessings to you all,
