Ingredients

    3 tbsp tahini
    1 tbsp canola oil
    cup honey
    3 cups thick cut rolled oats
    1 cup oat bran
    1 tbsp cinnamon
    cup sunflower seeds
    cup sesame seeds
    cup diced dried fruit (I used home-dried apples)

Directions

Combine the tahini, oil and honey in a deep skillet over medium heat.
When the mixture starts to simmer, add the oats, oat bran, cinnamon, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds to the pot and cook, stirring often with a spatula, for 4 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the raisins or apples.
Pour onto a large, greased cookie sheet and allow to cool.
When cool, transfer to an airtight container and store at room temperature up to 2 weeks, or freeze up to 3 months.
