Granola aka muesli

did not know that yohei would love this so much.... hence, i ended up making it twice.. and depending on how things work out, i may end up making this with improvisations... here is roughly what i used:

3 cups of rolled oats (regular)
1/2 to 1 cup oat bran (or wheat bran or wheatgerm)
1/2 cup shredded dessicated coconut
1 cup nuts (ie almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds etc.)
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tbs butter/oil
1//4 cup honey/maple syrup (can use brown sugar, but need to add some more oil or some juice for balance of liquid)
1 cup raisins/apricots (or dry papaya/pineapple)

preheat oven to 300 degree F. Mix the first four ingredients together. Mix butter/oil and honey separately and then mix with the dry ingredients. I use hands to mix them together, so that all the ingredients are covered in some oil and sweetness. Don't put the raisin or the other dry fruits noted at the end. Now, place the mixture in a well greased tray and bake for 25-30 mins in the middle rack...During the baking process, check every 10 minutes and stir, so that all the ingredients get equally cooked. I added the raisins 5 mins before the baking was over... And some more shredded coconut... Cool down the mixture and store in a airtight container... Would keep for several weeks...
