Cranberry Walnut Granola

Mmmm, it not only tastes so good on my yogurt, but it makes the house smell heavenly while it is baking.  Today's recipe comes from the wonderful cookbook, "Food to Live By."  The original recipe called for pecans, but I never seem to have pecans in the house...but I do have walnuts.  You can use whatever nuts you prefer.

4 1/2 c. oatmeal
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. pumpkin seeds
1 1/2 c. walnuts (or whatever nut your prefer)
Mix these ingredients together in a large bowl.  Then in a small bowl combine:
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. vegetable oil or coconut oil
1/4 c. pure maple syrup
Pour this mixture over the oatmeal mixture and combine well.  Pour onto the largest cooky sheet you have and bake at 325 for 25 minutes.  Take out of the oven, mix the granola around on the cooky sheet and return to the oven for another 30 minutes.
When it cools, mix in  2 c. dried cranberries.
