The first signs of autumn are in the air and that means oatmeal has returned to the breakfast scene around here. I eat it almost every day, but as much as I love a warm bowl on a cool morning, everyone needs a little variety. That’s where granola comes in.
Black Sesame Granola Recipe
1/4 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup raw honey
2 tbsp tahini
4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup black sesame seeds
1/4 cup dried fruit (I used cranberries)
1/4 cup nuts (I used unsalted peanuts)
1/8 tsp sea salt
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, honey and tahini. Stir in the oats.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir to coat with the oil and honey mixture. Pour out onto a baking sheet and spread evenly.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Makes about 5 cups.
