This crunchy granola features freeze-dried blueberries that complement the delicate green tea flavor and toasty black sesame seeds. The granola is not cloying at all, making it the perfect breakfast treat - it's sweetened by Grade B maple syrup and is enhanced by olive oil and a hefty pinch of salt. Serve with a bowl of yogurt drizzled with buckwheat honey. —Jamie's Farm New York
