This recipe was given to me by my aunt, who often prepared it for her own family. My family just loves the vanilla flavor and the sesame seeds.

"LOVE this granola recipe! My kids wouldn't wait until breakfast to try it. They ate a bowl for a snack right after school! I added craisins and dried cherries in it as well. Tasty!!"
