Chia and Black Sesame Seed Granola

Ok folks, it is in the oven so you will have to stay tuned for this bad boy.  Fair warning to strict vegans or folks limiting sucrose intake, I used some wild honey in this batch along with molasses, agave, sugar and a lion's share of sea salt.  I looked up some recipes but could not pick one so I decided to follow my own palate and chef instincts and made this one up.  Stay tuned and happy summer 2013!  Peace and love, always, in all ways.
Update and recipe
4 cups rolled oats
1 cup raw unsalted whole Cashews
1/2 cup black Chia seeds
1/4 cup black Sesame seeds
1 Tablespoon Sea Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
3/4 cup sweeteners of choice
1 cup melted vegan butter or oil of choice (coconut oil works well, or you can do half melted butter and half oil)

Preheat oven to 225 degrees F.  Toss all in large bowl until thoroughly coated.  Taste test for salty sweet ratio.  Final cooked product will taste less sweet than raw product.  Spread mixture on parchment paper on a large cookie sheet and press down using another peice of parchment or just use your hands.  Bake for 2 hours checking to ensure it reaches golden brown.  Turn off oven and leave as is in oven overnight (or for at least 4 hours) to cool completely.  The next morning place granola in airtight container.  Enjoy!
