Home Made Nutty Granola

I've always wanted to make my own granola.  I looked at several recipes and then came up with this.  Let me know if you like it!

4 cups rolled oats
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup chopped walnuts or slivered almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup pomegranate infused craisins
1/4 cup organic date pieces with organic oat flour
1/4 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup water

1. Heat oven to 300 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oats, wheat germ, nuts, sesame seeds, craisins, dates, pumpkin seeds, and salt.

2. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the oil, honey, and water. Toss the mixture until the ingredients are well combined, then spread it evenly on a cookie sheet.

3. Bake the granola for 40 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring every 10 minutes to keep the mixture from sticking. Let it cool completely, then stir in the cranberries or dried fruit.
