Seven Wive's Inn Granola

 This  recipe from the Seven Wives' Inn in St. George, Utah* for the most excellent granola I've ever had:

8 c. old fashioned oats
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1 c almonds (or more, to taste)
1 c raw cashews (or more, to taste)
1 c coconut
1 c sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, or a mixture of both
1 1/2 c wheatgerm
1/2 c water
1/2 c vegetable oil
1/2 c honey
1/2 c creamy peanut butter
2 t vanilla
1-1.5 c raisins or craisins (optional)

Directions: Stir to blend: oats, sugar, nuts, seeds, coconut, wheatgerm. Combine water, oil, honey and pb in saucepan; bring to boil, stirring until pb is dissolved. Pour over oat mixture, stir to coat thoroughly. Place in a single layer on 2- sprayed 10x15 pans. Bake at 200F for 60-70 min. Cool. Stir in vanilla and raisins. Store in airtight container or freeze for longer term storage.
