Lorie's Granola

In a large bowl, mix:
8 c. oatmeal
2 c. shredded coconut
2 c. nuts (sunflower seeds, honey roasted peanuts)
2 c. wheat germ

Heat on stove until sugar is dissolved:
1 ½ c. cooking oil
2/3 c. water
1 ½ c. brown sugar
3 T. vanilla

Pour liquid over dry mixture and mix thoroughly. Spread on 2 large cookie sheets and bake at 325° for 1 hour or until toasty and golden brown. Stir every 15 minutes. Add dried after cooking process. I use raisins, craisins, dried blueberry fruit mix from Costco.

My friend Lorie (the tri-athelete) tried all kinds of granola recipes and this was her favorite.
