1/2 C honey
6 C old fashioned oats
1/3 C bran
1/3 C toasted wheat germ
1/2 t salt
1 T cinnamon
1 1/2 C unsweetened coconut

How to Make It:

Place the oil and honey together in a large sauce pan or kettle.
Place the mixture on low heat and stir until combined.
Don’t let the mixture come to a boil.
Place the oats, bran, wheat germ, coconut, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and walnuts into the mixture.
Stir well in coat.
Add the salt and cinnamon and stir until well blended.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place 1/3 of the granola on a large cookie sheet.
Bake 5 minutes.
Continue baking another 10 minutes but be sure to toss the granola in this last 10 minutes a couple of times to be sure it is cooked all the way through.
When done the granola should be a light brown but be careful not to burn it.
Cook the rest of the granola in a 1/3 batch at a time like above.
Place the cooked granola in a large bowl and fold in the raisins.
Cool completely before storing in glass jars.
The granola must be cooled if not it will become too soft from the moisture.
