Great holiday gift idea

Attach jar labels to the jar with the following instructions

Preheat oven to 350F
Place the oven racks in the two center positions
Spray two 11 x 17-inch jellyroll pans with cooking
oil spray. Set aside. In a 1-quart microwave-safe
bowl, combine the oil, maple syrup and brown sugar
Microwave, uncovered, at high for 3 minutes, or until
the sugar starts to melt. Remove from the microwave
and whisk until any lumps disappear. In a 3-quart or
larger bowl, combine the oats, walnuts, wheat germ and
coconut. Toss to mix well. Pour the syrup mixture over
the oat mixture and stir until well-mixed. Spread evenly
onto the jellyroll pans. Place a pan on each oven rack
and bake for 10 minutes. Taking note of which pan was
on the top rack, remove the pans from the oven, stir the
granola, and place the pans back in the oven, rotating
to the opposite rack. Bake for 8-10 minutes more, taking
care not to over-brown, then remove from oven. Cool in
pans for 1 hour, or until granola reaches room temperature
Sprinkle half the raisins and half the dried cranberries
over each pan. Mix well. Store in airtight containers,
preferably glass jars or tins, until ready to serve
Keeps up to 2 weeks
