Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup tahini 120 g
  • 1/3 cup honey 115g, (can go up to 1/2 cup if you like your granola sweeter)
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup nuts of choice I used pecans, almond slivers, walnuts and cashews

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 F (165 C) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • In a small saucepan combine tahini, honey, olive oil, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Stir over medium low heat until warm and smoothed out (3 min or so). You can also microwave for 20-30 seconds.
  • In a large bowl, mix together oats and nuts. Pour the tahini mixture over the oats and stir until evenly combined.
  • Spread granola evenly onto prepared sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes until light golden brown, stirring once halfway through. After stirring, press granola back down.
  • Cool completely, then break granola into your desired clump size. I like nice big clusters. Store in an airtight container, will last at least a couple months.

Notes

Feel free to add any mix-ins you like. Shredded coconut, dried cranberries, chocolate chips would all be wonderful. You can add some toasted sesame seeds to enhance the sesame flavor of the tahini.
Wait until granola is completely cool to break it up, in order to get large clusters of granola.
