Ahmelie's "I Love Your Heart" Granola

I grew up on homemade granola and it's truly a treat to have it in the house.  I also love making this and giving it as gifts.  It's a hearty breakfast that sticks with you on those cold winter days.  I also add a variety of dried fruit to make it deliciously sweet.  It takes 2.5 hours to toast it to a golden brown and requires being stirred every 15 minutes so it really is a labor of love.  Here's the goods on how you make it.

Ahmelie's "I Love Your Heart" Granola
10 Cups Quick Oats
2 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
3 Cups Oat Bran (May substitute other dry ingredients: flax seed, wheat germ, etc)
1 cup almonds, slivered or sliced
Mix dry ingredients in roaster.

Mix Seperately:
1 Cup Honey
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Oil
2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Salt

Pour honey mixture over oats, stir in.  Bake at 300* for 2.5 hours, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.  Add 1 cup raisins, 1 cup craisins, 1 cup dried/chopped apricots,  1 cup coconut. Stir into granola mixture.  Serve over yogurt or with milk.  Yummy!
