This crunchy granola is naturally sweetened and made with only whole grains. Healthy and wholesome, this granola is also incredibly delicious.



2 cup old fashioned oats (certified gluten-free if needed)

¾ cup raw pecans

½ cup raw pepitas

¼ cup pure maple syrup

¼ cup tahini

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

½ teaspoon kosher or Himalayan salt


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and coat with nonstick spray.

Pulse pecans in a food processor until chunky (about 8 pulses), add oats to processor and pulse to break up (about 5 pulses). Transfer pecans and oats to a large mixing bowl and stir in pumpkin seeds, maple syrup, tahini, oil, cardamom, vanilla, and salt.

Spread in an even layer on prepared baking sheet and bake 25–30 minutes, stirring halfway through. Cool completely then transfer to an airtight container; store at room temperature for 2–3 weeks.
