A copycat recipe of granola I ordered at a restaurant recently on our "big city" trip. Since I didn't have a hard copy of the ingredients and this is a copycat recipe, you can adjust the amounts given below.

How to Make Granola with Sesame Seeds and Dried Dates

Step-by-Step

  • 1PREAHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Line two jelly roll pans with parchment paper.
  • 2In a large mixing bowl combine all of the ingredients except for the dried dates, yogurt (and berries if using). Stir. Note: you don't need to melt the butter.
  • 3Divide the granola mixture and place on the jelly roll pans. Spread out the mixture for even browning.
  • 4Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until nicely and evenly browned. Stir occasionally and rotate pans.
  • 5Transfer jelly roll pans to a trivet and allow to cool about 10-15 minutes before stirring in the dried dates.
  • 6TO SERVE: Place a serving of plain or vanilla yogurt in a bowl. Add a serving of the granola either on the side or on top of the yogurt. If desired, top the granola with fresh berries (or frozen berries which have been thawed). The restaurant garnished my yogurt with a few thin slivers of dried dates.
  • 7Store in a tight fitting container preferably in the refrigerator.
