Tahini Cardamom Stovetop Granola

Toasted oats mixed with nuts, seeds and fruit make this Tahini Cardamom Stovetop Granola a breakfast obsession. 

A good breakfast keeps you full, is fairly nutritious and should be easy to make. This Tahini Cardamom Stovetop Granola checks all those boxes. It comes together in one pan (on the stove!!!) in about 15 minutes. Can you ask for more? Make this recipe the morning of or meal prep for the week to come!

First of all, why stovetop versus oven baked? We’ve had both stovetop and baked granola, and vastly prefer the former. It’s easy to make, comes together in a single pan and cooks up nice and quick. Using the cast iron pan, we got an even browning across everything and you don’t have to clean up a huge sheet tray! Plus using a pan, opposed to a sheet pan, means you probably won’t make too much and have granola sitting in your pantry forever.

Tahini is one of those condiments that we love, but rarely use for anything other than dressings and hummus. In an effort to use up the delicious jar of tahini sitting in the back of our fridge, we started utilizing it in new ways, including this recipe. Tahini lends a sense of richness, with a nutty and slightly bitter edge. Paired with the sweetness of maple syrup this granola is going to be your new favourite breakfast.

There are many ways to enjoy this delicious recipe. Our favourite is paired with a non-dairy yogurt and fresh fruit, especially blueberries. This would also be amazing atop a smoothie bowl or enjoyed as a replacement for cereal. If that’s your thing of course.
