Maple, Tahini & Vanilla Granola

October 16 2015
« SCROLL PHOTOS LEFT TO RIGHT »

This week’s recipe is my delicious homemade granola. It contains no refined sugar and has no added oils. I have used tahini and pure maple syrup as the binders and their combination along with the vanilla bean is super delicious! It’s the way the clusters are created that gives this granola the perfect texture. I leave about ⅓ of the mixture whole and blend the remaining ⅔ in a food processor.

Today I have served the granola with fresh creamy vanilla almond milk (my almond milk recipe still needs a little tweaking before I share it with you all ☺) and fresh blueberries. You could also serve it with natural yoghurt and any fruit of your choice. I might also try making these into granola bars at some stage, for a great snack on the go. I’ll be sure to upload the recipe if I do.

What’s your favourite granola breakfast combination?

Have a wonderful week!

Method

  1. Add the oats, almonds, pecans, coconut, vanilla and cinnamon to a large mixing bowl and stir until combined. 
  2. Now take about 4-5 cups of the mixture and place into a food processor with the tahini. 
  3. Pulse a few times in the food processor until coarsely chopped.
  4. Add the coarsely chopped mixture back into the bowl with the whole granola mix.
  5. Add the maple and sea salt and stir well to combine.

  7. Remove the granola from the oven and set aside to cool.
