Cranberry Maple Tahini Granola

 Cranberry Maple Tahini Granola  You can quote me now, one of the hottest food trends of 2019 is going to be tahini. (And what better way to use it than in this recipe for Cranberry Maple Tahini Granola?!) We’ve seen it gaining in popularity over the last several years, and for far more than hummus… but I think we’re going to continue to see it really have it’s shining moment this year. Tahini is perfect for topping on almost anything… Biscuits, toast, pancakes, donuts, oatmeal, salads, and the list goes on. Just like with most nut butters, you can easily make tahini savory or sweet… or the perfect combination of salty sweet like I do here.   Cranberry Maple Tahini Granola  Cranberry Maple Tahini Granola  Cranberry Maple Tahini Granola
