    7      C.            rolled oats
    1      C.            coconut
    1      Tsp.          salt
    1      C.            wheat germ
      5/8  C.            brown sugar
      1/4  C.            sunflower seeds (optional)
      1/2  C.            chopped nuts (optional)
      1/4  C.            sesame seed (optional)
      1/2  C.            oil
      1/2  C.            water
    1 1/2  Tsp.          vanilla
    2      Cubes         margarine
    1      Lb.           marshmallows
      1/2  C.            honey
    1      C.            peanut butter
                         chocolate or butterscotch
                         chips (optional)
 
 Combine rolled oats, coconut, salt, wheat germ and brown
 sugar. Also can mix optional ingredients of sunflower seeds,
 chopped nuts and sesame seed. Mix and add to this mixture oil,
 water and vanilla; mix until smooth. Place in ungreased pan
 (large roasting pan, etc., so you can stir it periodically).
 Bake at 225 degrees until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 hours.
 Leave oven door open a crack to let moisture out. In saucepan,
 heat 2 cubes margarine and 1 pound marshmallows until melted.
 Add honey and peanut butter. When melted (I usually do in
 double boiler), pour over granola mix and pour into 9 x 12-inch
 greased pan. Cool and cut into squares. Good for hiking and
 camping snacks. Also add chocolate or butterscotch chips for a
 different flavor.
