my mom's granola

Carolyn's Granola

4 cups oatmeal (quick oats)
2 cups coconut
1 cup wheat germ or flax seeds or ground flax seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup nuts (almonds)
1 cup honey
1/2 cup butter or oil
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 tsp vanilla

optional:   1 cup craisins
        1 cup chopped pecans

Heat honey and butter together in saucepan.  Mix dry ingredients together, then add vanilla to heated liquid mixture.  Pour liquid over dry mix and stir.  Bake on cookies sheet for 20 minutes at 325 degrees.

I imagine you could decrease the amount of oil/butter by half or so.

I have fond memories of waking up to the smell of this granola.
