Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine the oats, coconut, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and sliced almonds in a large bowl. Stir to incorporate.
In a medium size saucepan over low heat add brown sugar, water, vegetable oil, honey, molasses, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir. Cook long enough for the sugar to appear melted. I kept mine on low heat for 4 minutes or so, then bumped it up to medium low heat, and cooked it for 3 minutes or so. You don't want the mixture to boil!
Remove the saucepan from the stove and pour the sauce over the dry ingredients. Mix everything so that all of the dry ingredients are coated evenly.
Spread granola onto 2 very large baking sheets (with sides). You may need to use 3 baking sheets. You don't want the granola to be layered on too thick. Place in the oven for 20 minutes. Stir halfway through baking time. I prefer my granola on the softer side. If you like a crunchy granola, continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes. Remove from the oven. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
