    spatchcock's Note:

    I love homemade granola--I discovered it this spring when I found about 10 recipes for granola on the internet. This is my favorite conglomeration. Sometimes I add some sesame oil too, either in addition to or in place of the vegetable oil. Enjoy!

      This granola is really good. I used less sesame seeds because I didn't have the full amount. Very easy and tasty.

      This is great basic formula for making different granolas. I have made it several times, both as the recipe is submitted, and with modifications. Most recently, I doubled the recipe, and made a few modifications. I substituted flax seeds and raw sunflower seeds for the sesame seeds and walnuts. Instead of honey, I used agave syrup. For the fruit, I used unsweetened dried pineapple. unsweetened shredded coconut, and unsweetened dried mango.
