granola recipes tahini Sep 08, 2022

I’m all about texture with my food so I love a crunchy granola but it is hard to find one on the shelves that isn’t super sweet thanks to the high sugar content. So here I’m bringing you a granola recipe that has minimal sweetness but you can add more if you like. Call me crazy but I’m also not a fan of dried fruit in granola so this one is free from dried fruit (although you can always add some if you wish) but is packed with nuts and seeds to help you feel fuller for longer. Another great thing, your gut bugs will LOVE all of the ingredients in this granola, especially if enjoyed with some kefir or probiotic yoghurt!

Serves 15


3 cups rolled oats

1 cup almonds

1 cup walnuts

½ cup pumpkin seeds

1/3 cup sesame seeds

Pinch of salt

1/2 cup tahini (hulled)

¼ cup honey (or more if you prefer)

1 tablespoon light extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup desiccated coconut


Preheat oven to 160°C. In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, nuts, seeds and salt.  Using a small saucepan on low heat, mix the tahini, honey, olive oil and vanilla until warm and smooth (but not bubbling). Pour over the dry ingredients and mix well.

Spread on a baking tray (line with baking paper if needed). Bake for 15 minutes and then spread over the coconut. Bake for another 4-5 minutes or until coconut is just browned.

Allow to cool completely and then mix. Store in an airtight container for up to one month. Serve with kefir/probiotic yoghurt and frsh seasonal fruit.
