Homemade Granola~~ I found it here!

3 - cups uncooked old fashioned oats

1 - stick + 1 tablespoon real butter

2/3 - cup honey

1/4 - cup light brown sugar

1/4 - teaspoon salt

1 - tablespoon cinnamon sugar

1/2 - cup wheat germ

3/4 - cup almond pieces

3/4 - cup pecan pieces

First melt the butter in a 3 - quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the honey and salt and briefly heat with the butter. In a separate bowl mix together the oatmeal, wheat germ, nuts, brown sugar and cinnamon sugar. Turn off the heat and add the oatmeal mixture. Stir until everything is coated. Pour the mixture onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Spread the mixture out evenly and bake it at 375° for 10 minutes (watch carefully) It will be a golden brown color. Remove from the oven and let cool. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.

I used my little hand chopper to chop up the nuts in smaller pieces. Not to small you want a few good size pieces.
