  2. A crunchy sesame seed granola — I got this recipe from the back of a page from a green engineering pad with a circuit diagram on the other side. Where it came from before that I do not know. Yield: About 6 servings.
  3. These are much better than any store bought granola. I eat it as desert or carry it instead of gorp when backpacking. It is very good eaten straight, with no milk. : Difficulty: easy. : Time: 15 minutes preparation, 20 minutes cooking
