Why settle for the one or two kinds of cereal that the supermarket can provide, when you can have this delicious, filling granola in less than half an hour? If you have a sesame allergy, you can substitute chopped sunflower seeds.

  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • 1/2 cup raisins

Combine first seven ingredients (oats through cinnamon).

Step 3

Spread on a greased cookie sheet.

Step 4

Bake 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Step 5

When cool, combine with raisins.



Substitute fresh peaches or berries for raisins when in season.
