Granola I

1 cup rolled barley
1 cup rolled spelt
2 cups extra thick rolled oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional)
3/4 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons safflower oil
3/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup raisins or dried fruit (optional)

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Combine first 4 ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside. In a small sauce pan heat oil and honey until well blended. Add vanilla and salt. Pour over dry ingredients and mix. Spread onto a large baking sheet with edges. Bake 25 minutes stirring every 10 minutes. After you take out the granola add the raisins/dried fruit (while granola is still warm) and let sit. The granola will harden as it sits. Make sure you stir it after 5 minutes of cooling down (otherwise it can really stick to your cookie sheet). Enjoy!
