Perfect! Love the sesame seed in this! Easy too. I used Rice Krispie cereal instead of rye flake. Thanks I'mPat for sharing.
Yum, this makes a lovely granola. I used some stale special K in lieu of rye flakes and the last of my butterscotch honey which worked a treat. A hit with both toddler DD and me. Thanks Pat!
WOW was this good! I made it as directed, however I subbed wheat bran for the rye flakes and I subbed flax seed for the sesame seed. I also threw in a handful of walnuts (excellent addition) and a sprinkle or two of cinnamon (I can't have granola without my cinnamon). For my dried fruit I chose dried blueberries and dried apricots (chopped). So good! Mine was a tad overdone at 20 minutes, so next time I will turn the oven down to 300 and see how that works. This is truly excellent granola. . .thanks Pat. . .make for MAKE MY RECIPE.
