Granola Mix
from Make-A-Mix Cookery, HPBooks

This is absolutely wonderful as a breakfast cereal with milk, or as a snack mix

Makes about 20 cups of granola

10 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (from a 42 oz. container)
1 cup wheat germ
1/2 lb. shredded coconut
2 cups (10 oz.) raw sunflower seeds
1 cup (about 4 oz.) sesame seeds
3 cups (10 oz. pkg) chopped almonds, pecans, walnuts, or combination
1-1/2 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
1-1/2 cups water
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup molasses
1-1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
3 tsp. vanilla
Raisins or other dried fruits if desired

Preheat oven to 300 deg. In large bowl, combine oats, wheat germ, coconut, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and nuts. Blend well. 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 syrup over dry ingredients and stir until well coated. Spread into five 13x9 baking pans**. Bake each one for 35-45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool. Add dried fruits if desired. Store in airtight container and keep in a cool, dry place. Use within 6 months.

**I use as big a pan as will fit in my oven and bake this in 2 batches.
