Recipe from my MIL, Debbie Hutchings

8 c. oats (old-fashioned)
1 c. wheat germ
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. of any or all of the following:
       slivered or sliced almonds
       sunflower seeds
       flaked coconut
       pumpkin seeds
       any other raw nut you desire
Mix well in large bowl.

In a saucepan heat:
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. oil
1 c peanut butter
1/2 c. maple syrup
3/4 c. honey

Heat until bubbly then turn off heat and add 2 tsp.vanilla.  Pour over granola mixture.

Spread onto 2 extra large baking sheets.  Bake at 200 degrees for 2 hours.  Do not overcook.  It may seem moist, that's how it's supposed to be!  Let cool.  Put back into bowl and stir in:
2 c. craisins and/or your choice of any other dried fruit.

Store in airtight containers.
