I’ve tried a lot of homemade granola recipes and this one is by far my favorite. First, I love the sesame seeds. Why did I never think of adding sesame seeds to my granola before? Admittedly, most of the ingredients in this recipe are optional, and can be omitted or changed to suit your tastes, but I highly recommend including the sesame seeds!
I also love how quick and easy this granola is to make. It doesn’t require hours of baking, with frequent stops for stirring. It takes about 15 minutes from start to finish. I also love the toasted, nutty taste that results with the skillet method. I actually cook mine about 12 minutes (or as long as I can possibly cook it without burning it) because I love the toasty taste so much! This keeps well for several weeks in an airtight container. It can also be frozen for longer term storage.
