Cocoa and Tahini Granola

5M Prep + 20M Cook
A deliciously crunchy muesli recipe, naturally sweetened with honey. Change it up each time by using ingredients that are on hand!
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup dried fruit (I use coconut, or chopped dates)
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup of seeds (chia, pumpkin, or sunflower)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped nuts (walnuts, almonds, or cashews)
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons tahini
  • 60ml melted coconut oil
      1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4
      2. In a generously sized bowl, mix the oats, dried fruit, cocoa powder and seeds. Roughly chop the nuts and add these too.
      3. Put the honey, tahini, and coconut oil into a pan and warm through.
      4. Pour the liquid mixture over the oat mixture and mix until it’s all coated. Then put on a large baking tray or two smaller ones.
      5. Put into the oven for 5-10 minutes, then take the muesli out and use a spoon or spatula to roughly break it up a bit. Put back into the oven for another 5–10 minutes.
      6. You know it's done when it starts form crunchy bundles.
