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
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate sea salt tahini

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, stir all the ingredients together except for the optional chocolate. Make sure to stir well!

  3. Spread the granola out on the parchment paper, making sure to press down lightly. Bake for 30 minutes.

  4. Once baked, let cool completely (like compleeeeetely) before touching. This will be excruciating. A sexy man you can't touch kind of deal.

  5. 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!
