Dark Chocolate Chunk Tahini Granola


This vegan and gluten-free granola recipe is made with all oats, raw nuts & seeds, tahini, all natural sugars and dark chocolate bliss.

Who doesn’t love a salty sweet combo?? Especially when there involves a little crunch and simultaneous melt in your mouth action. This granola truly has it all going on!

Here’s what you’ll need to make it:

Old Fashioned Oats – gluten-free if appropriate

Raw Nuts – in this case I used raw cashews and almonds

Seeds – chia and flaxseeds make the best combo but you can use either or

Toasted Coconut Flakes – pretty self explanatory but you can used shredded coconut if you must

Maple Syrup – for a little sweetness and it helps the oats crisp up

Dark Chocolate Tahini – or regular tahini if you want to stay away from refined sugars

Additionally – salt because duh and a chopped up chocolate bar of your choice. I used Hu Kitchen Salty Dark Chocolate because they don’t used any refined sugar.

  • 2 cups oats gf in needed
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews chopped
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds chopped
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp flaxseeds
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, stir all the ingredients together except for the optional chocolate. Make sure to stir well!
  • Spread the granola out on the parchment paper, making sure to press down lightly. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Once baked, let cool completely (like compleeeeetely) before touching. This will be excruciating. A sexy man you can't touch kind of deal.
  • Once the granola is completely cooled, break it up into big chucks before tossing in the chocolate. Enjoy by itself or with plant-based milk!


This granola should last for up to 5 days stored in an airtight container.
