Homemade Granola

I decided to try and use up some of my Food Storage oatmeal. This is a great way to do it. My kids even like this stuff. It's great with milk, in yogurt, or even dry.
4 cup quick oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 sliced almonds (you can also use slivered)
1/2 cups chopped pecans, or walnuts (just about any combination of nuts you like)
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil (or vegetable)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
In a large bowl, mix together oats, sugar, coconut, and nuts- set aside.
In a saucepan mix water, oil, honey, and peanut butter; bring to a boil. Remove from head and add vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients. Spread onto a large greased baking sheet and bake at 325 for 20-30 min. stiring occasionally. Remove from oven and let cool. Makes 2 pounds.
