Servings 8 servings


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1/3 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt add more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon


  • Heat oven to 325 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine all dry ingredients (oats, nuts, seeds, coconut, salt, cinnmaon) in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together the tahini, maple syrup, and coconut oil. Heat briefly in the microwave (for 20-30 seconds) or in a small saucepan (over medium heat for 3-4 minutes) until warm, but not bubbly. Stir again until smooth.
  • Pour the tahini mixture over the oat mixture, and stir until evenly combined.
  • Spread the granola out evenly on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring once halfway through, and keeping an eye on the granola to ensure that it doesn’t burn.
  • Remove baking sheet from the oven. Without stirring the granola, let granola cool until it reaches room temperature.
  • Break the granola up into your desired size of clumps. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container at room temperature.
