A crunchy, nutty granola that never fails to get compliments from breakfast guests.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
In a large bowl, stir together the oats, wheat germ, coconut, sunflower seeds and almonds. In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, honey, boiling water, brown sugar, salt and vanilla. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir until evenly coated. Spread in a thin layer on a large baking sheet.
Bake for 60 to 90 minutes in the preheated oven. Stir every 30 minutes, until lightly toasted and fragrant. Granola will crisp up more when cooled.

Eating good breakfast to continue the day has become a fabulous habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sweet hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me energy to take on the morning. Sugar is often vilified as the evil of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your stomach system and helps keep you feel full all day , and less likely grab a side food out of the vending machine before break .
Make fruit a morning habit is easy . Easy as put the fruit in your refrigerator next to the sweet drink or on the table next to your grain pan , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eating the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
