Good for You Granola

This recipe came from my sis-in-law Karey. We love to use it on fruit and yogurt for breakfast. She adds sesame seeds to hers but it was to overpowering for my tastes but if you like sesame sees throw some in!

3 c rolled oats
1 c coconut
1 c sliced almonds
½ c toasted wheat germ
1/3 c maple syrup
1/3 c butter, melted

Stir together the rolled oats, the coconut, the sliced almonds, and the toasted wheat germ. Stir in maple syrup and butter. Spread in a 15x10x1 inch baking pan. Bake at 375° for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring once. Can stir in raisins if desired. Cool. Store in an air tight container in a cool, dry place or in the refrigerator. Serve with milk or light cream. Makes about 7 cups.
