    1. Preheat the oven to 165 C / Gas mark 3.
    2. Stir together oats, almonds, walnuts, pecans, sesame seeds, wheatgerm, coconut and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. In a small pan over medium heat, stir together oil and honey; cook and stir until blended. Pour over oat mixture and stir to coat evenly. Spread out in an even layer on two baking trays.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until oats and nuts are toasted, about 20 minutes. Immediately after it comes out of the oven, stir in raisins and dried cranberries. Let stand until cooled and stir again to break up any large clusters. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks.

    Cook's note

    Instead of warming oil and honey on the hob, place in a large glass measuring cup and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

    I tried this one twice. The first version I followed almost exactly the recipe, though substituting some of the nuts for other nuts but keeping the qty the same, and adding some kosher salt and maple syrup as suggested.. The result was VERY oily and not a lot of flavor. So.. second time around I made the following changes: increase oats to 6 cups reduce oil to 1/2 cup used 1 c honey, about 1/3 c maple syrup, and about 4 TBS brown sugar, and a splash of apple cider...I also added cinnamon and salt to the honey/oil mix. YUMMY! I also used some hazelnuts, pepitas, dried cherries, flax seeds, and threw in some whole almonds too. The result of this batch is much better. The apple cider makes it smell great too. Way less greasy, and still was able to make clumps (press down into the pan after adding fruit.. once cool break into clumps). I am making this for xmas gifts.. so I added a few white chocolate chips to each bag after it was cooled also. Great recipe, it is very forgiving so go ahead and experiment!  -  16 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    First of all, THANK YOU Veronica for this amazing recipe. I just made a 10x recipe and am giving it away as Christmas gifts. I have a few comments that may be of interest to others. (#1) as others have noted this is a forgiving recipe and you can tweak as desired. Personally I like it with an additional 1c oats, and only 1/2 cup of sesame seeds and 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds, and add 1/4 tsp salt. (#2) You can be make this into bars or very clumpy granola as follows. Bake the granola in a jelly roll or half sheet rimmed pan. After mixing in the dried fruit, cover with a clean kitchen towel and press down hard to flatten into bars. Once completely cool, you can then break into bars or crumple into chunky granola. Great for snacks. (#3) for a different taste this can be baked for up to 45 minutes. Be very sure to stir often after 20 minutes so it won't burn, but you will end up with a rich golden brown granola that is quite crisp. The recipe as written produces an excellent chewy granola...if you want it crisp just bake longer. Thanks again Veronica.  -  13 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This granola is fantastic, I can't stop eating it!!! I added about 3 tsp cinnamon and 2 tsp of salt. The salt just brings out the flavors of all the nuts and the cinnamon spices it up just a bit. Thanks--I love it.  -  29 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
