Black Sesame Tahini Granola

The Granola you didn't know you needed!

Oh hey there! I know it has been a long time since I’ve posted a recipe here but I promise I have good reasons. LIFE. Yes your girl has been living life over the past couple of months and it has been glorious. I recently returned from a 2 week training/vacation in Baja Mexico. I left my training feeling grounded and inspired but now on this side of things, also jetlagged and tired. Not to worry, the sun is shining and Spring is on the way.

I am SO EXCITED to share this new granola recipe with you. Many of you love my tried and true granola and other variations but this one is holy hell delicious and dare I say one of my best. The addition of black sesame and tahini are just magical as you will soon find out. If you don’t have black sesame, use white. I am positive the taste will be just as delicious.
