Wendy's Granola

Wendy’s Granola
Serves 18

6 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

2 cups raw whole almonds or quartered pecans or walnuts

2 cups grated coconut, sweetened or unsweetened

2 cups raw sunflower seeds

1/2 cup raw wheat germ

1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup raw sesame seeds

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

2/3 cup vegetable oil

2/3 cup honey

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or almond extract

1.              In a very large bowl, combine oatmeal, nuts, coconut, sunflower seeds, wheat germ, pumpkin    
          seeds, sesame seeds, and brown sugar.

2.              In a 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup, measure oil, honey, and salt. Microwave 1 minute. Stir.

3.              Pour honey mixture into dry ingredients and combine.

4.              Pour half the mixture, about 7½ cups, into a roasting pan.

5.              Bake in a 300°F oven for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.

6.              Remove from oven, break into bite-size pieces, and cool before sealing airtight.

7.              Follow Steps 4 through 6 for remainder of granola.

NOTE: Can use an entire 7-ounce bag of grated coconut without measuring. Bits of dried fruit can be added after granola has cooled.
