If you are a granola fan, this is amazing and suprisingly easy. I got it from my friend Martha's magazine. We're close friends.
3 Tbsps unsalted butter
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. honey
2 tsps. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. water
4 1/2 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. wheat germ
1/2 c. bran
2 1/2 c. tropical trail mix ( like from costco, or i got mine at walmart for 4 bucks)
1/2 c. coconut
Preheat over to 250 degrees. Melt butter in saucepan over medium-low heat. Add sugar, and gook until melted. STir in honey, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and water. Add remaining ingredients and toss. Spread on two rimmed baking sheets. Bake stirring occasionally, until golden brown and dry, about 1 1/2 hours. Let cool on sheets. This can be stored in an air tight container for up to 3 weeks, but I doubt it'll last that long if you have a hungry husband. Enjoy! EMily
