Basic Granola

This is yummy granola that makes a huge batch, but nice if you want to have a lot on hand--I have to give credit to Darrell's mom for this one!

8 cups rolled oats
6 cups rolled wheat
2 cups wheat germ
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups each sesame seeds and sunflower seeds (optional)...I add flax seeds
mix together in a large bowl

1 cup honey
1 cup oil
1 cup water
2 Tbs cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
heat in saucepan until dissolved, then add 1 Tbs vanilla
poor into oats mixture until evenly coated bake on cookie trays in oven for 30 minutes at 325 degrees, turning/stirring at 15 minutes. cool

for variations: you can add whatever nuts (1-2 cups each) of whatever you like, and/or add raisens, or other dried fruit as desired
low fat variation: add only 1/2 cup oil and add an extra 1/2 cup water, or only add 1/3 cup oil and add an extra 2/3 cup water
less cinnamon variation: add only 1 Tbs cinnamon and add an extra Tbs vanilla
