Ingredients:  
3 c old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 c almonds
1/4 c green pumpkin seeds
1/4 c sunflower seeds or pine nuts
1/2 c pecan pieces or walnut pieces
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 325.

In a large bowl stir together oats, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, pecans, cinnamon and salt. In a small saucepan melt butter with honey over low heat, stirring. Add vanilla and pour butter mixture over oat mixture and stir until combined well.

On a large baking sheet, spread the granola evenly in a thin layer. Bake, stirring every 5 minutes to keep from sticking or burning, until golden brown and crisp, about 20 minutes. (Do not overcook; the granola will crisp more when cooled.) Cool the granola on the pan on top of the stove and stir in dried fruits. Granola may be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
