Homemade granola is super simple to make and this tahini & fig nut free granola is made up of just 8 ingredients. It’s a crumbly granola with a very light flavour – the tahini is very subtle. Because I used tahini, I chose to make it completely nut free by using a mix of sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds. It’s delicious with yogurt, in a smoothie bowl, with some milk and berries or by the handful straight out of the jar.

  1. Preheat the oven to 160C and line a baking tray with baking paper or a silicone mat.

  5. Spread the granola in the prepared baking tray in an even layer.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Halfway through baking, mix the granola and turn the pan around.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  8. Once cooled, add in the chopped figs.
  9. Store in an airtight container. It will last about 1 month if stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
