8 cups rolled oats (not instant)
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups unprocessed bran
1 1/2 cups natural wheat germ (not toasted or honeyed)
3/4 cup roasted sunflower kernel, no salt
1/2 cup sunflower oil
3/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups raisins
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup dried mixed fruit, chopped
Stir oats, brown sugar, bran, wheat germ, and sunflower kernels in a large bowl. Put sunflower oil, honey, and vanilla in a small saucepan. Heat, stirring until bubbly. Pour liquid over dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Divide oat mixture evenly and spread on two rimmed cookie sheets. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes, stirring once to keep granola evenly browned. When completely cool, add raisins, coconut, and dried fruit.
Makes about 18 cups.
