While loading recipes the other day, this one was a special request from Cheryl. I love it and I believe Kevin has requested that they keep a five-gallon bucket of this granola in their house!

8 C Old-fashioned oats
14+ C Puffed wheat
1 C (Approx.) Ground flax seed

2 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
2 C Honey
2 C Water

Mix the first three ingredients in a very large pot. Combine the last 3 ingredients in medium saucepan and heat to combine well. Pour the syrup over the first part in the large pot. Mix to coat the granola. Spread the granola on several cookie sheets (the thinner it is spread, the faster it will cook and be finished!). Bake at a low temperature (about 240 degrees), stirring frequently (every five minutes or so) until crisp and slightly browned. Store in an airtight container.

You can also add nuts (I really like pecans in it!) toasted in a smaller batch of the syrup, but it tastes best to toast them up separately from the rest of the granola. You can also add raisins if you like them in your granola.
