Good Granola

This is my favorite granola of late. Easy and very yummy as Rowan can attest to.
Good Granola
preheat oven to 300 degrees

dry ingredients-

4 C rolled oats
1/8 C wheat bran
Any combination of nuts to equal 1 1/2 C, I use sesame seeds, slivered almonds and pumpkin seeds it's ok to use less nuts and add more of the oats and bran if you like it less nutty.
3/4 C flaked coconut (optional)

wet ingredients-

1/3 C oil canola or safflower oil or other similar type of mild tasting oil
3T brown sugar
1T molasses
2T water

Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl, set aside. Whisk together wet ingredients in a smaller bowl then pour over dry. Stir with a wooden spoon or hands to coat thoroughly, (kids love to mix stuff with their hands) Spread on a large cookie sheet brushed with oil or use a silpat liner and bake for 40 minutes until golden. Stir every 15 minutes throughout baking time. Viola! Yummy with milk, yogurt, or as a topping for ice cream too!
