Try serving these chunky clusters of tahini granola with a splash of almond milk and a sliced banana for the tastiest breakfast, or have it for dessert scattered over a scoop of vanilla ice-cream with a drizzle of melted dark chocolate. Or just eat it from the jar by the handful – we won’t judge!
Why we love this recipe:
- Dates – these are packed with fibre and natural sugars, as well as adding a wonderful chewy texture to the granola. Want to know our favourite way to enjoy dates? Cut them in half, stuff them with peanut butter and add a sprinkle of sea salt for a real treat!
- Tahini – this versatile ingredient can be drizzled over pretty much any meal (sweet or savoury!) and is a key ingredient in hummus. It works equally well in a salad dressing as it does in this granola, and helps bind everything together, while providing many health benefits including antioxidants, iron, calcium and healthy fats.
- Halva – this sweet dense confection is made from sesame paste. It melts in the mouth and makes the most delicious addition to this recipe.
Feel free to substitute and play around with the ingredients. You can use any nuts you have at home – I had some cashews and pecans in the cupboard, but this would be delicious with pistachios, walnuts, almonds, or a combination of all of them! This recipe can also be oil-free if you replace the rapeseed oil with a little extra tahini.
