Homemade Olive Oil Granola (Recipe)


✅ 2 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats

✅ ¾ cup shelled pistachios

✅ ¾ cup walnuts

✅ ½ cup sunflower seed

✅ 3 tablespoons raw sesame seeds

✅ 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
✅ ¾ cup honey warmed up so it’s runny

✅ ⅔ cup tahini

✅ ½ cup extra virgin olive oil

✅ 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

✅ ½ cup packed light brown sugar

✅ ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

✅ ½ teaspoon cardamom

✅ ½ cup chopped Medjool dates (about 6 dates, pitted and chopped)

✅ ½ cup dry cranberries or cherries


1️⃣ Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2️⃣ Combine the oats, pistachios, walnuts, sunflower seed, and sesame seeds, and coconut flakes in a large bowl.

3️⃣ In another bowl, mix the honey, tahini, olive oil, vanilla extract, brown sugar, cinnamon and cardamom. Pour over the oat mixture and toss until the oat mixture is well-coated.

4️⃣ Spread the mixture on a large sheet pan in one single layer. Bake in the heated oven, stirring every 7 to 10 minutes, until the mixture is golden and well-toasted (anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes)

5️⃣ Remove from the heat and allow the granola to cool completely. Break it up into clusters and mix in the dates and cranberries (or other dried fruits of your choice).
