Grandma Suds Granola

Last year, one of my bffs threw me a surprise birthday party. Since she knows I'm a recipe junkie, she had all of my friends type up some of their favorite recipes and then put a binder together for me. I love it! Here's one of the recipes, courtesy of Tiffany Grimes. Enjoy. :)

Combine in large bowl:
10 cups old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups wheat germ
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups raw sunflower seeds
2-3 cups chopped nuts (optional)
1/2 cup flax seed

Combine in sauce pan and heat until sugar dissolves:
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup molasses
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp vanilla

Pour wet mixture over dry ingredients and stir well. Spread onto 2-3 rimmed cookie sheets. Bake at 325° for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Cool and put in large bowl. Mix in dried fruit, if desired. Divide into gallon ziploc bags, freeze what you are not using right away. Makes about 20 cups.
