Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
In a sauce pan combine maple syrup and canola oil. Heat until hot but not bubbling, about 5 minutes.
While the syrup is warming in a large bowl combine oats, chopped nuts, wheat germ, and cinnamon. Mix well then pour the syrup mixture over the granola. Mix well again and then spread out on a lined baking sheet.
Bake for 45 minutes at 300 degrees. Make sure you mix the granola every 15 minutes. Once granola is out of the oven and has cooled--store in airtight containers (such-as mason jars) for up to 1 week.
