Begin by adding the butter....YUM!! Real butter, not that fake stuff. Melt it in a medium-sized sauce pan, very slowly. When it is completely melted, add the honey and salt. Do not boil this mixture. Set aside.
In a bowl, mix the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon/sugar, wheat germ and nuts. I prefer pecans and almonds, but you can use what you love the most. Tonight, I just used pecans.
Mix this together and add the butter/honey mixture. Stir well. All of these ingredients are gonna get to know each other very quickly. Pour this wonderful-smelling concoction onto a well-greased (I spray with canola spray) cookie sheet pan. Spread it out evenly and try to pat down with the back of the spoon.
Bake this for 10 - 15 minutes, until it looks like it's browning a bit, remove from the oven. Using a spatula, press down while hot. Let cool, remove from pan and store in air-tight container. Remember, to prevent the granola from sticking to your pan (and having to pry it out with a hammer and other barn tools), remove from the pan when it's cooled enough to touch.
