This was very good! I used what I had on hand. Instead of sunflower seeds I used chopped pecans and sweetened coconut for the unsweetened. I thought I wouldn't like the orange zest but I did. I only used 1 t. of cinnamon and wish I had used more. Thanks for posting!
4 1/2 stars. This is good. I used less honey with dark brown sugar as per my favorite recipe. I also used less cinnamon as it seemed a lot & a bit less orange zest because I didn't have enough. I also slightly heated the vanilla (I used halal vanilla paste), creamed honey and canola oil as also per my favorite granola recipe. I made Fresh Fruit Yogurt Parfait with this which was good. But I won't make this again because I don't like sesame seeds in this.
My kids & I loved this! We substituted sunflower seed kernels for the sesame seeds & added 1 cup dried cranberries. The orange zest made this outstanding! And so easy to make!
