This amazing granola recipe started as a recipe from "allrecipes". Where I have brought it to now is completely different than the original. You can substitute pretty much ANYTHING in this recipe to suit your tastes. I end out needing to make a batch of this every week! It is the best ever breakfast. Over a snack before bed. All the protein before bed will help you wake up strong! I like to have it with milk just like cereal but it is also good with yogurt, or even dry! If you're feeling super adventurous, why not try it with some vanilla ice cream?

"Expensive to make, but delicious and healthy! One batch lasts for a long time, so it is well worth the cost!"

Preparation

:) Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine oats, wheat germ, flaxseed meal, flaxseeds, sesame seeds, brown sugar, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, pecans/walnuts, almonds, peanuts, cinnamon, and salt. Mix thoroughly. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, honey, vanilla, and water. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients evenly. Spread mixture evenly into a greased pan, almost any size will work. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every twenty minutes. While the granola is baking, prepare the dried fruit. If it is really dried out, soak it in recently boiled water for a few minutes to make it plump and juicy. Once the hour is done, take the granola out of the oven, let it cool for five minutes in the pan. Pour granola into a large container, then stir in the dried fruit. Leave it to cool with the lid off for an hour or so, or enjoy it immediately! This granola does not need to be kept in the fridge. It always is still good for a week, but it has never lasted longer than that so I'm not sure how long it will last past that point!
