Tahini Granola Goodies

Tahini Granola Goodies are a great idea when it comes to healthy snacking! It’s a great option for your lunch box and kids will love them. The ingredients is not only all natural, it also extremely nutritious.

Ingredients
2 cups oats
1 cup uncooked quinoa
¼ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup tahini (organic)
3 tbsp. coconut oil (or other vegetable oil)
2 tbsp. organic maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla powder
¼ cup toasted sesame seeds

Instructions
Preheat oven to 150° C and line a baking sheet with parchment.
Stir oats and quinoa together in medium mixing bowl.
Place brown sugar, tahini, coconut oil, organic maple syrup and vanilla in a small saucepan.
Place over medium heat and cook until tahini softens and brown sugar melts completely, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat immediately once the ingredients are completely blended.
Pour tahini mixture over oats and quinoa and stir.
Once the sesame mixture is cool enough to handle, you can use your hands to break up any chunks.
Spread mixture in an even layer over parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake 40 minutes, or until mixture begins to brown around the edges.
Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Add sesame seeds and transfer to an airtight container.

Note

Make sure your tahini isn’t too dry, as it will make this difficult to mix. If it is a bit on the dry side, add a bit of oil, maybe zap it in the microwave for a few seconds, and give it a good stir.
On a similar note, the recipe mentions removing the tahini mixture from the heat immediately when everything is melted and blended. This is important, otherwise the tahini might start to crust up and you’ll have a hard time mixing it in with the oats and quinoa.
