Granola! It’s a delicious snack or breakfast addition, but unfortunately most store-bought granolas are packed with refined sugars and poor quality oils. This super easy (really though, you won’t believe how easy) homemade granola is packed with nutrients and flavor. Tahini (aka sesame seed butter) is loaded with healthy fats and essential amino acids and can help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol, and even balance hormones.
This granola goes great with yogurt, on smoothie bowls, in milk, or on its own. It makes a great travel snack too! Feel free to mix things up and substitute whichever nuts and seeds you love most, or whatever you already have on hand – it’s a very forgiving recipe.
- 2 cups GF rolled oats
- 1 heaping cup chopped walnuts
- ½ cup pumpkin seeds
- 2tbs chia seeds
- ¾ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1tbs cinnamon
- 1tsp nutmeg
- ½ tsp cloves
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 4tbs tahini
- 5tbs coconut oil
- 3tbs honey
- 1-2tbs pure maple syrup
- 1tsp vanilla extract
Heat oven to 300. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Then mix wet ingredients in a small bowl and heat a little in the microwave until runny. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well. Spread mixture evenly onto a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes. Store in a jar and keep in the fridge.
