Aunt June's Granola

I can't believe I haven't posted this recipe before now.  This is the granola I grew up with.  It is my grandma's sister's recipe...tried and true and still going strong!:)  It is simple to make and makes quite a bit, but will last for months if kept in an air tight container...but it'll most likely be gone before you have to worry about that!  I love to eat a big bowl of it with milk in the morning, super filling and packed full of nutritious ingredients!

Aunt June's Granola
1 container (2 lbs.) regular oats
5 cups corn flakes
2 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
3/4 cups sunflower seeds (raw, unsalted)
3/4 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup cream of wheat, uncooked
1 cup butter
1 cup water
3/4 cup honey
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons vanilla

Combine first 6 ingredients in a LARGE bowl.  Stir until combined.  In a saucepan (or microwave), warm the remaining ingredients until butter is melted.  Pour over the dry ingredients and mix to coat.  Bake at 250 degrees in thin layers on cookie sheets for 45-60 minutes.  Cool.  Store in air tight container.

Optional:  Can mix in raisins after cooled.  Other dried fruit would be good as well.  Just add what you like or eat it as it is.
