Tropical Granola

An economical trip to the tropics with coconut and mango, this granola is perfect in a bowl with almond milk or as a topping for fruit salad or oatmeal. It also makes a nice homemade gift paired with a tin of loose tea.

1/8 cup sesame seeds

1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup safflower oil
4-5 slices dried unsweetened mango

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Heat honey and oil in small saucepan over low heat until well combined
  3. Mix oats, seeds and nuts in a large bowl
  4. Pour honey mixture over oats and seeds, mix well
  5. Spread onto two cookie sheets
