The Victorian Inn Granola


1-1/2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1/4 cup bran
1/2 cup sliced, toasted almonds
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/3 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 300F degrees. Mix the oats, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut, bran, almonds, and wheat germ together in a large container. In a small saucepan, heat the honey, oil, vanilla, and almond extract but do not boil. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients and stir to coat evenly. Spread in a greased shallow baking dish to a uniform depth. Bake, stirring every 5 minutes until golden (approximately 15 minutes). Let cool thoroughly. Add raisins and combine. Store in an airtight container (glass is best) in the refrigerator until ready to use. Serve with plain yogurt or milk.


Makes about 3-1/2 to 4 cups.
