* Rye flakes and wheat flakes can be found at health food stores and some

Granola mix: In a large bowl, combine oats, rye, wheat, wheat germ,
coconut, sunflower seeds, nuts and sesame seeds. Stir until blended well.
In a saucepan, combine brown sugar, water, oil, honey, molasses, salt,
vanilla and cinnamon. Heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. DO NOT boil.
Pour syrup over oat mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until syrup coats all
ingredients. Spread mixture in two 13 x 9 x 2-inch pans or on 2 large
cookie sheets with raised edges. Bake in preheated 300-degree oven 30
minutes, stirring occasionally. For crunchier texture bake 7-10 minutes
longer. Cool on racks. Stir in the dried fruit that has been chopped into
bite sized pieces. You can put this into containers and keep in cool dry
place for up to 6 months. Do not refrigerate.

Yield: About 10 cups.
