There are no funny ingredients, and it tastes amazing. This granola recipe is vegan, Pareve, and can be gluten-free too (if using gluten-free oats). 

Ingredients Overview

Rolled oats (old-fashioned oats): These oats are perfect for the recipe as they hold their shape really well when baked. Be sure to use certified gluten-free oats if you need gluten-free granola.

Coconut oil: Oil helps make this granola crisp, and the coconut adds an irresistible flavor. If your coconut oil isn’t in liquid form, you’ll want to melt it in the microwave.

Tahini: Runny tahini is key. This recipe works best with runny tahini that will easily mix with the other ingredients. Tahini brands vary widely in consistency, so look for one with a smooth, pourable texture. I like (affiliate links) Soom, Baron, and Seed+Mill.

Date syrup: Date syrup is a delicious natural sweetener, also called Silan. It is a thick, dark-brown, very sweet fruit syrup extracted from dates. It can be found online, at Trader Joe’s, and in Middle Eastern stores. I tried and liked a few brands (Affiliate Links): The Date Lady, Soom, and Trader Joe’s. Learn more about Date Syrup here.

You can substitute it with real maple syrup

Chia seeds (optional): For an extra nutritional boost. 

Nuts and seeds: Use whichever nuts you have on hand or like best. 

Ways to Use Granola

They are so many ways to enjoy granola. Here are a few easy ways to enjoy your homemade granola:

  • Crunchy topping on yogurt
  • Add milk and enjoy it like cereal
  • Eat by the handful as an on-the-go snack
  • Make a trail mix by adding nuts, dried fruits, and chocolate chip
  • Smoothie bowl
  • Give as a gift – fill a jar or a gifts bag
  • Ice cream topping
