Abby's Granola

This is a fabulous recipe from my fabulous cook friend Abby Bennett. I made this and Chad told me multiple times how much he liked it. It's really easy to make and really good!

4C old fashioned oatmeal
3 C Wheaties/wheat flake cereal
2 C wheat germ (this is cheapest at Target)
2 C coconut
Almonds, whole or sliced - optional but good

Heat the following in a saucepan until smooth:
1 C brown sugar
1 1/2 t salt
3/4 C oil
1 C water
1/2 C honey
3 tsp vanilla

Pour sauce over dry ingredients and place on 2 cookie sheets. Bake all day with your over just above warm or on 150 for about 6 hours. Can also be left overnight. Stir occasionally. It won't feel crunchy when it comes out of the oven, but will once it cools. Nuts and raisins can also be added after baking, although if you're using almonds, it's good to add them before so they can toast all day.
