Peanut Butter Granola

Melt together the following in a small cooking pot:
1/3 c. oil
1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. molasses
1/2 c. peanut butter
2 t. vanilla

Mix in a separate bowl:
6 c. rolled oats
1/2 to 3/4 c. sunflower seeds
1/2 c. wheat germ
1/3 c. bran
1 c. nuts (I've used slivered or chopped almonds, pecans, etc.)
10 c. flaked cereal (Special K or Corn Flakes)

Mix dry ingredients, and then pour hot wet ingredients over dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Place by thin layers on cookie sheets, and bake at 275 degrees for approx. 1 hr., stirring every 15 minutes. Granola is finished baking when it looks golden brown. Let cool in a brown grocery bag. After reasonably cool, add shredded coconut, raisins, date pieces, dried cranberries, etc. Let cool completely before storing in plastic containers.
