Gluten-Free Chai Granola

Chai is one of my favorite ingredients so using it in this collaboration with @drtarasunshine was a no brainer! Enjoy this Vegan Chai Granola!

Fewer things give me as much pleasure as a good granola, so when Tara @drtarasunshine and I got together to brainstorm recipes  a while back, I suggested granola and she suggested chai flavours, it was a resounding,  all of the yes😋

Who among us has TOO many granola recipes?! Not this kid, and with all the warm spicy flavours that bring oh so much comfort in these cold AF winter months, who doesn’t want that? So here ya go peeps. Please let us know what you think!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Course Breakfast


  • 1-2 baking sheets
  • oven
  • measuring spoons
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • 1 small pot



  • 4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp cloves
  • ½ tsp allspice


  • 3 cups gluten free oats
  • 1 cup roughly chopped raw almonds
  • 1 cup chopped raw pecans or raw walnuts
  • ½ cup raisins pre soaked for 10 minutes in warm water
  • ½ cup desiccated unsweetened coconut
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp ground flax
  • 1 tbsp chai spice
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup organic tahini
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat the oven to 320 convection or 325 degrees regular.
  • In a large bowl mix dry ingredients together and set aside.
  • In a small pot, combine tahini, maple syrup and olive oil until it melds together, remove from heat and add in vanilla.
  • Add wet to dry and mix until well incorporated. You will most likely need 2 cookie sheet pans (or 1 large pan. I love my Pampered Chef ceramic pan) to spread mixture evenly.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Turn pans and bake for an additional 10. Keep an eye on it as you don't want it to burn.
  • Let granola come to room temperature before lifting it off of pan using a spatula. Store in mason jars at room temperature.

  1. Really looking forward to making these! They look so yummy and I love the spiced aspect. I didn’t know until recently that from chai masala chai means tea and it’s masala that means spice

    1. Hey Stefan, I am so happy to hear that you plan on making some chai granola! Yes! Aren’t words incredible when you start to understand their origin? I love that “chai tea” is actually kind of just “tea tea” ahaha
