Recipe by startnover
I wanted a granola that had all the ingredients I love and got sick of spending a ton of money to mix 3 or 4 types together so I came up with this recipe--hope you love it.

I loved the inspiration!! Your's sounded great and it inspired me to make one but I changed it some. I made a small batch with 1/4 cup each of oat meal, sesame seed, coconuts, puffed corn cereal, puffed rice cereal, & almonds. I baked at 300 for 5 minutes. I sprayed some no calorie butter spray on 1/8 cup splenda & 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon till I had a paste, then mixed 1/4 c raisins and 1/4 cup chopped dates in with it. I added this mixture to the baked mix and put it back in the oven for 5 minutes and stirred it about every minute. THIS IS SOOOOOOOOO YUMMY!!! Thanks for the inspiration. I'm giving yours a 4 star rating because it sounds so good but after making mine it seems that yours might be cooked too long for me. Thanks for the great idea!!
