Grain-Free Tahini Granola

All Breakfast Middle Eastern Flavors


If Granola’s your thang, try this low carb version!⠀

People tend to only think of tahini in savoury dishes, but it is soooo good in sweet preparations.  

I have a few baked recipes using tahini, and if you are a tahini fan like me, you are going to love these.

The tahini in all of these recipes give a depth of flavour that can’t be replaced!  

Back to the granola.  As a nutritionist I must warn you… Portion control!! 

I see a lot of people having a huge bowl of granola with a few tablespoons of yogurt and a sprinkle of fruit…. this is BAD!

Switch this around and your golden! A good serving of Unsweetened coconut or Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup of granola, and 1/4 cup of fresh fruit and Boom! You have yourself a power breakfast that will keep your blood sugar stable and have you feeling fuller for much longer. ⠀

Granola can be addictive people, so be mindful!

How do I like my granola?  

Sprinkled as a topping.  Love this over my chia pudding, smoothie bowls, or as a snack over some coconut yogurt with some fresh berries. 

The kids love this too!  I often bring it along if we are heading out for an active day.

You can use whatever nuts and seeds you have on hand.  For this batch I used, almond slivers, chopped pecans, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds.
