Tahini Cardamom Granola with Raspberries

November 10, 2016

Author Notes: Sesame seeds, sesame oil and tahini make this a VERY sesame granola. Tart dried raspberries and bright orange zest balance its nuttiness. Hannah Kirshner

In This Recipe



  1. Preheat your oven to 350.Grease a rimmed baking sheet with the neutral oil. On the sheet pan, mix together everything except the cardamom, orange zest and raspberries.
  2. Bake the granola for 15 minutes, stir, then bake 10-15 minutes more, until golden brown. Check often towards the end of baking, as it can burn quickly.
  3. After baking, immediately sprinkle the cardamom and orange zest over the granola. Add the raspberries. Cool completely before packing in an airtight container.
