Tahini Granola

This Tahini Granola is a mix of oats, almonds, tahini, apricots and cranberries. It's great on its own or topped on yogurt.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups quick oats*
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/16 tsp salt (or a pinch of salt)
  • ¼ cup slivered or chopped almonds
  • ¼ cup chopped dried apricots
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 large egg, whites separated from yellow (you will only use the whites in this recipe)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 300F
  • Mix oats, cinnamon, cardamom, tahini, salt, brown sugar, egg white, vanilla, and almonds in a bowl
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread granola evenly on the sheet and press down with a spatula or small piece of parchment paper (this will help clusters form)
  • Bake for about 20 minuets, until a lightly toasted color is achieved. Once out of the oven add chopped apricots and cranberries and gently mix together with granola
  • This stores freshly at room temperature for 4 weeks in a sealed container. But, it may be devoured sooner than that
