Vanilla Tahini Granola

Spending my morning applying for PA state licensure, which I knew would be hair-pulling agony. To offset this, I decided to make a little vanilla tahini granola. With a scent like this wafting in my nostrils, there’s no WAY I can let frustration levels rule me. Life hacks!! Okay, super simple recipe below. Serves as both amazing breakfast/snack as well as aromatherapy. 


Dry ingredients:

  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped

Wet ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 300F
  2. Combine dry ingredients in one bowl. Combine wet ingredients in another. Heat wet ingredients to thin (I heated in microwave for ~30 seconds. Though I know microwaves are not cool anymore. The horror that I even own one!! You could also combine over a very low heat on the stovetop). 
  3. Mix wet with dry.
  4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  5. Scatter granola mix on parchment paper. 
  6. Bake for 15 minutes. Stir. 
  7. Bake for another 15 minutes. 
  8. Serve!! 

***note: if you like really chunky granola, firmly pack the mixture on the baking sheet. When you take it out, break into chunks
