The people who have been given bags of this keep coming back for more, so I guess it must be pretty tasty!

In large bowl:
12 cups rolled oats
2 cups chopped dates
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup raisins
1 cup dried papaya
1 cup sesame seeds
2 cups walnuts, coarsely chopped
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds

In medium bowl:
1 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup molasses
1 cup filtered water
1 cup applesauce
1-1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 heaping tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla

Whisk everything in the second bowl together well

Pour liquid into oat bowl, mix thoroughly, (I used my hands and had it mixed in no time). Divide evenly onto four stoneware bar pans (jelly-roll) and bake 45 minutes at 300 degrees in a convection oven, stirring every 15 minutes. For more crunch, bake a little longer. Cool thoroughly before storing in glass containers. Makes 27 cups of granola.

(eta: I have found that if I add some of the wet ingredients to the fruit and add it to the oat mixture during the last twenty minutes of baking, the fruit doesn't get so leathery.)
