2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 cup sesame seeds
1 cup toasted salted almonds

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat Oven to 300. Combine all dry ingredients (except dried fruit). Combine the oil/honey/syrup mixture, heat until it reaches the boiling point. Pour over the dry ingredients and mix very thoroughly. Be careful - the wet ingredients are very hot. Spray at least two large cookie sheets (with sides) with cooking spray. Spread the mix evenly in the pans and bake 50 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and let set for 30 minutes before dumping it all into a large mixing bowl. When it is cool enough to handle, pour in the dried fruit as desired and mix thoroughly with your hands. Allow it to cool, then place in large containers. Close tightly and you have two or three weeks of healthy ready made breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack.
