I love crunchy granola (especially with a little coconut yogurt!) but this is one thing I prefer to make myself because I'd rather use whole fats instead of oil and maple syrup instead of sugar. I said "one thing" as if I don't actually love making everything myself. Okay, I love making everything myself. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
This recipe is super easy and super delicious. Hope you love it! If you make any yummy amendments, let me know so I can borrow your ideas.
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients. Combine! Spread onto baking sheet.
- Bake at 325 for 20 minutes, stirring after ten.
- The granola won't be crunchy when it comes out of the oven (this is normal) but will crunch up as it cools.
- Pumpkin seeds are great for zinc and walnuts are high in plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, but feel free to switch up the nuts and seeds! Just keep the ratios roughly the same and you should be golden.
