Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats, wheat germ, walnuts, almonds, pecans, cranberries, sunflower seeds, blueberries, cherries, raisins, coconut, salt, and cinnamon.
  3. Place a metal mixing bowl on top of a stockpot with some hot water over medium heat. Add the butter and honey to the mixing bowl and allow the butter to melt. Remove from heat, add the vanilla, and stir.
  4. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry and stir to coat thoroughly. If the mixture appears wet, add more rolled oats, 1/2 cup at a time. Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray.
  5. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes to cook evenly, adjusting the oven temperature if it's getting too dark. Allow the granola to cool completely, and then break apart any large pieces that are stuck together.
