Food Friday

Good Morning Everyone!
To start this awesome Friday morning here is a delicious recipe for you to enjoy! It's easy..and uses alot less oil than most granola recipes.
This is good and crunchy with lots of sweet flavor.....
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup chopped almonds(can use any nut of your choice)
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 (14oz.) package flaked coconut
1/3 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
6 tablespoons pure maple syrup
6 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons warm water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup raisins
1 cup dried cranberries or cherries
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet with sides, or a large cake pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl toss together the oats, nuts. wheat germ, coconut, and sunflower seeds. In a separate bowl whisk together the maple syrup, brown sugar, oil, water and salt. Pour the liquid over the oat mixture, and stir until evenly coated. Spread out on the prepared pan. If you want some chunky bits, squeeze some small handfuls into little clumps.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Stir occasionally until evenly toasted. Mix in dried fruit (raisins..cranberries...and cherries). Cool. Store in an airtight container at room temp.)
(I like to put granola on top of my yogurt...yummy!)
