DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 275º.
  • Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Combine brown sugar and water in a 4-cup microwave proof glass measuring cup or bowl.
  • Place in microwave on high for 5 minutes and cook until sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Remove from microwave, add vanilla and salt.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, nuts, wheat bran, oat bran, wheat germ, coconut, sunflower seeds, and brown sugar syrup mixture.
  • Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  • Spread the granola onto cookie sheets and bake 45 minutes to 1 hour or until golden and crunchy.
  • Stir every fifteen minutes.
  • (I use a very large stainless steel bowl instead of a cookie sheet) After baking you may add raisins, dates, or any other dried fruit.
  • Yield 14 cups (before adding fruit).
