Best Granola EVER

Makes about 1.5kg.
125g butter 
150ml honey
1tsp vanilla extract
500g rolled oats
50g pecans chopped
150g hazelnuts chopped
75g pumpkin seeds, 75g sunflower seeds, 50g golden linseeds (there is a 4 seed mix in tesco, I use half a bag), 
100g desiccated coconut
300g mixed dried fruit ( dates, figs, raisins, sultanas, dried cranberries, chop the larger fruit).

Preheat oven to 170. 
Put butter, honey and vanilla into small saucepan and melt gently. Mix the oats, nuts, seeds and desiccated coconut together in a large bowl. Pour over the melted butter mix and stir really well to make sure all the dry ingredients are evenly coated.
Divide the mixture between 2 large baking trays and spread in an even layer. Bake in the oven for half an hour turning every 5 mins, watch it doesn't burn around the edges.

Remove from oven and leave to cool on trays stirring them every few minutes as it cools.
Once totally cool, transfer into large bowl and stir in choice of dried fruits. Put into airtight container and it will last at room temp for about two months. (it won't last that long
