4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups raw wheat germ
1 cup hulled raw sunflower seeds
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (I just break them)
1/2 cup flaked coconut
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 cup cooking oil
1/3 cup water
2 Tbs vanilla
1 In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, except the brown sugar and mix together.
2 In a saucepan combine the brown sugar, cooking oil and water and warm over low heat until the brown sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and add the vanilla.
3 Pour liquid mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well. Spread in a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake at 350°F for about 50 minutes or until golden brown, stirring every 15 minutes.
4 After removing from oven, add raisins if desired.
5 Cool and store in a tightly covered container.
