Tahini, almond & dried cherry granola (GF, Vegan)

Making homemade granola is very satisfying, you can basically throw in your favourite nuts and seeds and it always turns out delicious. But this tahini almond granola with dried cherries is my favourite. The added tahini gives the granola a subtle nutty richness and the dried cherries are gorgeously sweet and slightly sour at the same time.

This granola is one of the few things I’ll swap for toast in the morning, and as a toast addict that’s saying something. And its definitely on my short list of best things to make at home because the shop versions are often surprisingly sugar laden or contain palm oil – so its wonderfully nurturing to know you are eating a super delicious breakfast or snack that is 100% good for you!
