4 cups uncooked rolled oats (not instant)
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup dry milk powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grease large cookie sheet. Combine oats, wheat germ, coconut, milk powder, cinnamon, and brown sugar in large bowl. Combine honey, and vegetable oil in small saucepan. Heat until warm. Stir in vanilla. Pour honey mixture over dry ingredients. Fold in raisins. Mix well. Spread evenly in pan. Bake at 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes or till lightly brown, stirring occasionally. Cook on wire rack.

Testing comment: A little too much cinnamon for our taste, but otherwise good. Since we like nuts and sunflower seeds, I would put some of those in for extra crunch and flavor. Also, I would add the raisins after baking the granola, or at least near the end of the cooking time. They were almost burned after being cooked the entire time.
