A Treat from Nature - Homemade Granola

This is my first time making granola. It turns out surprisingly good - hearty and earthy. Most importantly, you can pick and choose the ingredients you like. And it is so EASY!

Raisins and Nuts Granola

 - 2 cups rolled oats
 - 2 cups wheat germ
 - 1 1/2 cups oat bran
 - 2/3 cup sliced raw almonds
 - 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
 - 1/2 sunflower seed kennels
 - 1/2 cup dark raisin
 - 2 tbsp granulated sugar
 - 1 tsp salt
 - 7 tbsp honey
 - 2 tbsp vegetable oil

- In a small sauce pan, mix honey and oil on low heat until the honey is loose.
- In a medium bowl, mix all the rest of the ingredients. Pour the honey/oil mixture over the dry ingredients, mix well. 
- Preheat the oven to 300F
- On a large rimmed cookie sheet, spread the granola mixture evenly. Bake for 10 mins. Take out the pan and use a spatula to mix the granola to make sure it bake evenly. 
- Bake for another 10-12 mins or until golden.
- Store in air-tight container or zip log bags.
