Mix together in large bowl:
4 cups (or more) oats
1 c. wheat germ
1 c. chopped almonds
1 c. shredded coconut
1 c. unsalted sunflower seeds
½ c. sesame seeds (these have a very strong taste and I actually prefer it without them)
¼ c. sugar (this is optional, it just makes it sweeter)
In a saucepan, heat ¾ c. oil and ¾ c. honey until runny and easy to mix. Add 1 tsp. vanilla or almond extract. You can use pure maple syrup in place of honey and this does not need to be heated.
Pour oil/honey mixture over other ingredients in large bowl. Mix thoroughly. Pour into 2 large glass baking dishes and bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes. Take it out and stir and then bake for another 15 minutes. Take it out again to stir, and then bake for an additional 15 minutes.
After baking, pour everything back into the large bowl and add 1 cup of raisins or dried cranberries. Mix together. Now let it cool completely and then store it in a ziplock bag.-Monica
