Toasted Sesame & Spiced Oat Granola

What if you combine two of the world's yummiest ingredients, oats and sesame seeds, into one scrumptious granola? Would that have to be a super delicious breakfast, packed full of protein? Yep, we suspected it might ... so we got busy in the kitchen ... and the result is one of the tastiest, filling granolas we've tried. See what you think....

Like most seeds, sesames are a rich source of protein. In fact, they are 25% protein - which is impressive. They are a good source of Omega 6 and anti-oxidants (sesamin, sesamolin & sesamol) - which are the good oils. That also makes them filling - a good thing for a breakfast food.

Oats are one of our favourite grains, because not only do they taste yum, they help to bind other ingredients in cooking, thanks to their beta-glucan (a soluble fibre which helps to lower cholesterol, but also gives a creamy mouth-feel).  They are high in protein (17%) and fibre (11%), so they're one of the good guys of the breakfast world.
