Granola..take 1

Homemade Granola..adapted from Phemomenon.
In a large bowl, stir together
3 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup raw almonds chopped
1 cup pecans ( I excluded these)
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp light brown sugar
3 Tbsp wheat germ
1 Tbsp flax seeds
2 tsp cinnamon

In a microwave safe bowl combine
1/4 cup honey ( I used a little more, and I used the local honey we get at Dixie Nutrition)
3 Tbsp vegetable oil (I used extra virgin olive oil instead)
2 tsp vanilla
Microwave ingredients for about 1 to 2 minutes, until heated lightly.  Pour over the dry ingredients and stir to coat.  Place on a baking sheet and make sure the granola is spread evenly and in a single layer.  Bake in a preheated oven 300, for 15 minutes.  Take out and stir, bake for another 15 minutes  take out of the oven and let cool  The more you stir the cooling down granola, the more it will separate so if you want a chunkier granola, don't stir it so much! :)  When it is cool you can eat it, or store in a air tight container for about a week.  It won't last that long!
