Homemade Granola

I was inspired by Lisa's recipe to make some of my own granola.  It is so yummy!  I made a few changes because I did not have all the ingredients on hand. 

mix all dry ingredients:

4 cups rolled oats (old fashioned)
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup raisin bran{crushed}
1 cup walnuts (chopped)
1/2 cup pecans (chopped)

for the glaze, mix the following ingredients in a sauce pan over low heat until smooth
1 cups splenda
1/4 cup agave nectar (I used honey)
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 stick butter ( I used a bit less)

salt to taste
cinnamon to taste

pour sauce over dry ingredients and mix well. sprinkle granola onto baking sheet and bake at 350* for 10-15 minutes or until golden. serve with yogurt and fresh berries.
