6 cups rolled oats
1 cup wheat germ
3/4 cup raw cashews
3/4 cup raw almonds
3/4 cup raw walnuts
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
2/3 cup canola oil
2/3 cup honey
2/3 cup water
1 TBSP vanilla
1 tsp salt
1-2 cups raisins
[optional 1 cup chocolate chips - which we always add. LOL!]

Preheat oven to 325. Spray two large casserole pans with Pam. Mix oats, nuts, and seeds in a large bowl. Over medium heat, combine oil, honey, water, vanilla, and salt. Bring just to a boil and then pour over oat mixture. Mix well to coat everything.

Spread evenly in pans and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, stire, and bake for another 15 minutes. Let cool and add raisins [and chocolate chips].

Can be stored in a covered container for 5 days in the pantry, 2 weeks in the fridge, and indefinitely frozen.

[This is based on a recipe I found in a LLL magazine many years ago]
