1/2 Cup honey
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup butter
1 Pinch salt
2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Almond Extract
5 Cup Oats, steel-cut
1 Cup Sunflower Seeds
1/2 Cup Wheat Germ
1 Cup Mixed Nuts, Toasted
2 Cup Fruit, dried
Combine the honey, brown sugar, butter, and salt in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla, cinnamon, and almond extract. Let cool slightly.
Lightly butter the bottom and sides of a rimmed baking sheet.
Combine the oats, sunflower seeds, wheat germ and nuts (coarsely chopped) in a large mixing bowl.
Pour the warm syrup over the oat mixture. Butter your hands and mix well. Press the mixture into the prepared baking sheet.
When ready to cook, set the grill temperature to 300℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Bake the granola until lightly browned, about 1 hour. Let cool, then break into chunks in a large mixing bowl.
Stir in the coconut and dried fruit. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
