Preheat oven to 300°F. In a large bowl, mix oats, nuts, wheat germ, flax seed, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, raisins, and coconut. Toss to mix. In a sauce pan, over low heat, melt butter and olive oil. Add honey, and stir to blend. Pour honey mixture over oat mixture, and stir to blend. Spread mixture onto 2 baking sheets. I line them with parchment. Bake granola until golden, about 20-25 minutes.
