Yummy Granola

4 c old-fashioned oats
½ c shredded coconut (my kids/husband don’t even know it’s there)
½ c wheat germ
½ c vegetable oil
½ c honey
2 t ground cinnamon (or 1½ t cinnamon, ½ t nutmeg)
½ c raisins
chocolate chips, optional

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients in a bowl, except raisins and chocolate chips. Pour mix onto a baking sheet. Bake for 18 minutes, stirring every 6 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Stir in raisins and a handful of chocolate chips if desired. Store in zippered plastic bags in the freezer. Makes 1½ quarts. Great by itself as a snack. Also can be a topping for yogurt or vanilla ice cream.
