LOVE making this granola! I’ve made it more than a handful of times now, doubling the recipe so that I have enough in stock. It’s so easy to swap things in and out with what I have on-hand, and it’s great knowing that there isn’t any added sugar, just the sugar from the fruits 💕.
Love it. I make it once a month. I leave out the nuts and add raisins after it comes out of the oven. Love Love love it
I think this is a great recipe but did have a difficult time blending the dates and tahini. Is there a trick to deal with the constant sticking? I used more water than the recipe called for.
I was slightly disappointed that it wasn't very crunchy either...next time I will perhaps leave it for a few minutes longer. I enjoy the taste though, and think that the dates and tahini make a great alternative combination! 🙂
First and foremost I love your channel and website. Everything is carefully designed, crafted with the viewer/user in mind and top quality photos, visuals and off course recipes. Hats off for this!!
I have an oven which minimal temperature is 170°C (not 150): how long do you advise me to bake? I cannot turn it lower, it's preset at min 170°C-max 225°C.
Secondly, would other types of dates work out too (Deglet-nour from Tunisia or mazafati from Iran)?
Have been doing this recipe for years and it never disappoints. I bring I every morning to work to eat with my yogurt and I literally have colleagues stealing it. Everyone loves it! I sometimes use date syrup when I don’t have dates on hand and it works just fine.
I am starting to make this granola every two weeks, it tastes very good and it’s easy to make :)
The best granola ever! I add some chia seeds, walnuts, pistachios, wax seeds. With coconut milk or kefir and a kiwi aside, it has become our favourite breakfast
I make this recipe every week. It's just so amazing! Sometimes I even have to double the recipe, because everybody stepping by just wants to put there hands in it! This recipe gives such a good base to experiment with by adding different nuts and spices or some puffed durum wheat or puffed rice in the end or add different dried fruits. With some warm berries it's just heaven. And its a great sustainable present too!
Gotta admit, I didn’t expect much of it because healthy and tahini in granola?! But OH MY GOD this is my FAVORITE granola now! I absolutely love it! It’s become an absolute pantry staple!
I made this yesterday and it’s delicious and so easy to make.. I added hemp seeds and flax and topped with banana, strawberries and soy milk for a delicious and nutritious breakfast. I love your recipes. They always work and are tasty and easy to make. Thankyou.
I’ve been trying various granola recipes for a few months and this one is my decided favorite!
Thank you for sharing!
This granola is super delicious! I have a couple of questions though: is mixing the tahini and date mixture with the oats supposed to be hard to get full coverage? And, is it supposed to be soft or should I have left the granola in the over longer to get more of a crunch? Thank you :-)
I can't remember how many times I've done this, but it's such a reliable breakfast choice and versatile! I love how easy it is, thank you so much!
I made this and the red pepper hummus today. Both of these came out so great! I am so proud of my container full of granola that I look at it like a proud momma lol. I am very happy with its taste. My dilemma of what to eat for snacks is finally solved. Thank you.
Regarding the steps, it took me well more than 30mins to make it brown and crispy.
I love this recipe! It's been on non-stop repeat at my home for the past 5+ years, great job! It has the perfect level of sweetness, not too sweet and not too salty and makes for a wonderfully filling breakfast. I was wondering if you've ever considered creating a christmas-flavour inspired version?
I make it with milletflakes, riceflakes instead of the oats. So good!
This recipe is so good that it has become a staple at my house! I make it weekly! However, I have made one change to it that I think makes it even better. Instead of using 3 cups of oatmeal, I use 2 1/4. That allows the date and tahini mixture to cover it even more thoroughly.
I made it and it is yummy. I relaced ones raisins with goji
I love this granola recipe! It's so versatile and delicious. Using the dates and Tahini really sets it apart from any other granola I've made or eaten. I experiment a little bit each time I make it, adjusting quantities of nuts, spices, seeds, and fruits, and it always turns out great. I thought I lost this recipe, and was overjoyed when I found a copy on your website!
I always have some of that amazing granola in my kitchen now !! Thank you that is so so good ;)
I do not remember how many times I did this recipe. So delicious and easy make. Thanks for sharing with us.
Not just healthiest, but best granola ever.
An great recipe, absolutely delicious! I usually use maple syrup for granolas but after trying this recipe, I love using the puréed dates now, it’s just sweet enough. As a personal preference, I double the cinnamon and salt, I like to feel the spice and the extra touch of salt helps all the ingredients sing. I also add the dried fruits after the granola’s cooled, no need to bake as they’re already dry. Thank you for this recipe!
I love making this granola recipe.....since I live out in the middle East we have access to date syrup and taking making it a breeze to make. I add some psyllium husk, chia seeds and flax seeds and it comes out excellently! Thanks for this❤
I just made this recipe and reduced the dates to half it's quantity as I don't like it too sweet. It's a star! Thank you for sharing. Look forward to trying the other recipes. Cheers!
Yesterday I tried the recipe for granola and was absolutely thrilled.
I don't really like the slightly bitter taste of tahini, but I still had a jar that needed to be used up. So I tried this recipe and I am extremely happy with the result. The dates, the cinnamon and the tahini paste make a sweet, but not too sweet, mixture that you could honestly just roll into balls and eat like that.
My tips: The date paste, mixed with the oat flakes and nuts turns it into a very sticky mass that you should tap rather than spread with short movements on the tray. And when baking, I turned the temperature down a little so that the granola could dry out well and become crunchy without turning too brown. I added the sultanas only 5 minutes before the end, otherwise they always get too dark for me. You can also halve the recipe if you are 1 or 2 people. It's still a big portion if you use it as a topping for something.
As a pure muesli, it is too sweet for me, so I mix it with coarse oat flakes - with fresh blueberries it is a dream. The recipe is quick enough that you can easily make the granola fresh when it runs out. All in all, it's the best granola I've had so far, because it has the most complex taste. : )
This granola is just perfect!
The dates and tahini go really well together and make this granola deliciously sweet and nutty without overdoing it.
Will definitely make it again! Thank you for sharing!
I love it! Delicious granola. I am just curious why you would bake the dried fruits. In other granola recipes you add them after baking. Is it better to add them before?
it is what it says it is
Healthiest and dellllliccccious <3
My go-to breakfast for a few years now :)
I love this recipe! It's so crunchy and sweet but without the burden of refined sugar. The flavour is a smoky sweetness and the nuts and seeds give it a wonderful crunch. I have mine with oat milk.
love this, this is been my go to granola since 2 years, i don’t even look at recipe anymore here but just make it, that’s how many times i have made it.
I love this recipe ! I usually use date paste and peanut butter (since I like it a lot better in general than tahini) and it's delicious. Thank you !
I absolutely love this granola, my go-to from now on. Go and make it now :)
This granola has the perfect texture. It keeps also very well. I love using it as a topping for my yoghurt - and not only for breakfast, works brilliantly all day long!
We love this recipe - so easy to pull together, great flavours and feels indulgent despite being reasonably healthy!
This granola is really easy to make and tastes wonderful with the combination of dates and tahini. It is also a good way to use up all the backing ingrediencies you might have left over, like walnuts or almonds. With this recipe you can nicely substitute with what you have at home. Depending on your oven settings you should check more often to get a golden but not overly crispy result.
I make a huge batch of this every 2-3 weeks and eat it for breakfast every day! The best granola I have ever made, so easy, and my family loves it! Thank you for sharing such wonderful treats!
My go to receipie!
Best granola recipe possible! I make this on a regular basis and just don't get tired of it. It's crunchy, sweet and flavourful and basically every ingredient has major health benefits. Highly recommend!
I make this all the time!! Its amazing :) I use peanut butter instead of tahini and add a bit of maple syrup
2nd breakfast staple I tried from your site. Love it.......
I love it! I really appreciate that one is using only natural sugar in this recipe. It tastes amazing. Thank you so much for sharing with the community. I love your work. Take care and never change :)
The best granola recipe ever! I love that it has no added sugars <3 it’s super tasty
This is my all time fav granola recipe. The date-tahini cream is just wow!
A PUL classic! This is one of the first PUL recipes I made and has become one of my favs. I love all the PUL granola recipes I've tried, but this one has a special place in my heart. Whole food ingredients that come together to make something so delicious.
Amazing granola recipe! I have made a version of this plenty of times, and everyone just loved it (including me)!
Extremely tasty and easy to make! I used half tahini and half natural peanut butter, and substituted the cashews for pecans since that's what I happened to have on hand. Love that I can control exactly what goes in to the recipe, and will definitely make this again soon!
Delicious and very easy to make!
Wow ! this is delicious. Sweet but not too sweet,very unique flavour. I simply love it!
Your website and videos are the best I've found. After years of being a vegetarian, I feel like I've learned so much about having a more nutritionally balanced diet from your videos and notes. I appreciate that the recipes are doable, meaning that they call for ingredients I'm likely to have in my pantry. I also like that I can have a stock of ingredients used for multiple recipes.
My question has to do with Medjool dates vs. Deglet dates. I usually buy deglets because they are less expensive. The recipes turn out satisfying and tasty, but I do wonder at the difference. Is there a preference for Medjool?
This is an AMAZING recipe as it is so easy to make. And in my humble opinion, it takes much better than any store bought granola.
I love cinnamon so aded an extra 1/4 tsp. And I added about 1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract to the date, tahini and water mixture, which creates a caramel taste (and smell). So good!! And so nice to know every single ingredient in the granola and know that there is no oil or refined sugar. Thank you!!!
Love how this recipe controls the sugar and fats ... and so natural ingredients.
My new favorite recipe I will always make Know.
Thank you for sharing.
This is my go to recipe when it comes to granola. Simply the best.
Amazing with no sugar or oil and it’s DELICIOUS!!
Quick, easy and very delicious! Pretty much as soon as the last batch is gone I make an new one. Highly recommended!
I just made this yesterday! It’s so good, and the tahini really adds a yummy depth of flavor. However, once stored, it lost some of its crispiness. I wonder if it just wasn’t fully 100% cool when I stored it (it seemed cool.) So good!
This stuff is amazing. I give as gifts. Everyone loves it! Super cute in labeled jars.
The video and the pictures are totally drool-worthy, thanks for sharing this! I am a huge fan of dark chocolate so I tried this and it turned out the best! Do try it once.
I am in love with these granolas! My new go to! Not too sweet but so flavorful!! Thank you! :)
Simple, easy, delicious :) 5/5 ⭐
I should have reviewed this a long time ago. This is the best granola recipe out there! I make it all the time. It’s super tasty, the texture is incredible and its nutritious. My go to breakfast again and again and again. I usually make a huge batch and place it in an airtight jar. I serve it with Oatly gurt and sprinkle som goji berries and hemp seeds on top for extra goodness.
First time making my own granola. I loveeee it so much! The making process, the smell after baking, and the taste, all makes me so happy. Thank you Pick Up Limes 🥰🥰🥰🌸🌸🌸
It's the second time I've done this recipe and It's DELICIOUS! It can be eaten all by itself, like a cookie! My brother-in-law ate the rest of my first batch yesterday actually so that's why I needed to make a second one only 2 days after making a first one! 😄
Delicious! I have been using peanut butter instead of tahini because I never have enough tahini around, but it is my new favorite breakfast with some fruit and plant milk!
So delicious!!!! Thanks for the recipe!
My kids are fighting for it like for sweets. It is super delicious <3 thank you for sharing Sadia!
I made this granola today, for the first time, and I love it!
I would never have thought of using tahini and dates on my own! I`ve usually used honey for sweetener, water and oil for moist to make granola, but this was soo good! Glad I`ve found your blogg and youtube channel!
Love your recipies so far!
Hi, wondering if I can use regular pitted dates? It’s kinda pricey to obtain Medjool dates in my country and the ones that are most accessible are US pitted dates and Pakistani (Khadrawy) dates. Which between the 2 would you recommend? Thank you!
I’ve been meaning to make this for so long but kept putting it off and i’m so mad at myself!!! This tastes amazing and it’s such a flexible and versatile recipe! There are so many things I substitute in this recipe (because its what I had on hand) and it still turned out perfect. I really do appreciate recipes that use up what you already have instead of going out to get things for it specifically, thank you so much for this recipe it’s now a household staple!!!!
Already made it twice. I just love the paste covering all the dry ingredience! I personally add a little more water to make the paste spread out more. Thank you for the recipe!
Hi Sadia! Unfortunately I don´t have an oven in my house... could it be possible to cook this with a pan on a hob? Thanks in advance!
Yum, yum, yum! This is such a great recipe. Thank you so much for sharing it.
I just love your homepage.. not only are your recipces simple (not boring) and tasty.
the way how you explain it - so down to earth, quick and easy - its easy for me to understand (no english speaker) and easy and fun to recook.
You became my favorite food blogger !! happy 2022. Wish you a happy and successfull one..
hands down the best best granola recipe - simple and really yummy.
Excellent really enjoyed this for breakfast. Definitely one to make again and again.
Loved it! My family did too🥰
Next time I will test out pb instead
Would 2 servings of protein powder work in this?
This has become my go-to granola recipe! I love that you can change it up so easily by swapping out different nuts. I use an equal split if tahini and peanut butter - the grandkids love it. I give all my kids a big jar for Christmas, and it's always gone before new year's.
First time making this granola today, what a great find! I prefer my granola in big, chunky bits and this is the perfect recipe for that. The tahini flavor makes so much sense now that I've tried it. I will definitely be making this again!
This recipe is really amazing . I can prepare this with Baked Granola with Cranberries & Almonds from True Elements- a clean label food brand which I have been using for a year and it really is great! One doubt whether we can use this recipe for all age groups? Please let me know. Can't wait to try this recipe. YAYY !
If anyone likes experimenting with flavours, I soaked my dates and raisins in hot water with a vanilla chai teabag before using them and I think it turned out pretty well.
Can I use date syrup instead? The dates here are useless. How many ml would I need?
Delicious! I used California dates, and they worked great. I was concerned that the 1/2 c serving size was very small, since I'm used to eating 1/2 c oatmeal cooked--at least double that 1/2 c serving size for breakfast. However, I tried a 1/2 c serving with plain yogurt and fresh berries, and to my surprise, after eating my 1/2 c serving, I was full. I'm now planning to make a double batch of the granola, now to be my new staple breakfast food.
This recipe is really amazing. Loved the end result. However if I wanted to make it nut or seed free, do you think I will have to substitute the nuts/seeds with oats or could I simply omit them ( assuming I keep the quantity of dates or tahini the same ) ?
Really appreciate your amazing recipes.
Very interesting blog. I would definitely recommend this to my family and friends. Thank you.
Hi sadia I’m incredibly happy that i found this recipe since we don’t usually use maple syrup or coconut oil in iraq but tahini and dates are essential in every house . I did combine both this recipe and the chocolate granola one i just added coco powder to the dates and tahini paste and FOR some reason it tasted like nutella to me and my little brother liked it . IT can be a healthy version of nutella thank you for these amazing recipes 💕🥺💜
I always love your recipe
Amazing! Nice sweetness and crunchy thank you <3
My go to granola cereal recipe.. i always go back to it whenever i get out of granola.. very yumy and healthy❤️❤️❤️❤️😋😋😋😋😋
Thank you for the inspiration
Thank you for sharing this recipe! Will this work with whole grain extra thick oats from Bob's Red Mill? Or do I need to somehow modify the recipe?
Also, can I substitute the tahini for something else?
I Love it. It ist a dessert all by itself!
Hi Sadia, your recipes are just wonderful and your videos are so calming, am addicted to the videos in a way, one question can we replace rolled Oats with steel cut for granola?
I mean, where do I even begin! This recipe is heavenly... I have been making it for months now and I don't think I'll ever stop making it. The best breakfast ever!
Although this granola requires slightly more time than your other recipes, I absolutely love the result. Maybe I’ve said it before, but I think this healthy option is a favourite. The date and tahini mixture does wonders: it really creates the characteristic crunchy lumps of caramelised ingredients as in store bought granolas. Importantly, it tastes so good!!! Love the nuts and I can’t wait to try this recipe with almond/macadamia and pecan/cashews. Figs instead of raisins works well😋
I’ve tried it with fruit and coconut yoghurt so far, but I’ll put it on PUL mango/peach smoothie for the weekend
This is completely delicious. I love it. I've made it every couple of weeks, switching up the nuts depending what I have. I usually switch the cranberries for sour cherries which elevates it to another level! Thanks Sadia, I love all your recipes that I've tried - this is definitely the one I've made the most. SO good.
I love love love this recipe. I make it weekly and add it to my daily bowl of breakfast kwark. Best granola recipe I have ever used and super easy to make! I need to go make bigger batches so it lasts me longer! Thank you for the recipe!
Just ammaaaazing! I always double the recipe because it’s gone within 2 days!
This recipe has become a part of our regular rotation. It tastes delicious and is super simple to make, plus the recipe is malleable to whatever nuts/seeds/other add ins you happen to have on hand. In my oven, it usually needs closer to 35-40 minutes.
I grew up in Syria where they make "Halawa", a traditional non-vegan dessert made of Tahini and date molasses with pistachios on top. The tahini, dates and nuts in this granola made me feel that I was eating a Halawa-flavored breakfast - the child in me is so happy thanks to you, Sadia!
Easiest and yummiest granola EVER! I'm never buying granola from stores again. Thanks for another great recipe!
That tahini and date mixture...OMG, I could eat just that and be a happy girl! Love this granola! I use to make my own but got lazy with kids, work, etc. The store bought stuff is full of refined sugar and stuff I don't want. This recipe is so easy and customizable. I used pecans instead of cashews, added a bit more cinnamon, and some nutmeg. Smells so good and tastes even better! Thank you!
Hands down! The best granola recipe ever!
I’m looking forward to making this recipe, as your double chocolate granola was delicious! I’m wondering though, would this recipe work as granola bars if I press the mixture into a square baking dish?
I agree with the other—BEST GRANOLA ever! Using a seed, or tahini, instead of usual coconut oil and dates instead of usual honey or maple syrup make this higher in protein and minerals. I also use a tad bit less dry mix and make granola bars and take to the ice rink when I judge. Keeps my energy up and mind sharp for long competitions.. And it is a great recovery food after an intense morning of ice skating ⛸ for myself. This granola is on REPEAT and always available in my house.⛸💃🏼
Best granola recipe I've tried, honestly! The mixture of tahini and dates give it an amazing taste. I did it with walnuts instead of cashews and I took of the raisins and the coconut (so you can always adapt / simplify according to what you like or what you have at home). Highly recommend, and I'll deffo try some other granola recipes from PUL
These taste amazing! I'll give them another try though as I hadn't seen that the recipe stated 'old-fashioned' rolled oats and I used normal ones instead. So as I mixed the date mixture in, the oats kind of disintegrated and almost turned into oat flour and I ended up with something closer to granola bars... It's still really nice but will try again!
Hi! I love this recipe. One question though, can I replace tahini with something else? like coconut oil or peanut butter. If so, in what proportion?
I LOVE this recepie so much. I make a huge batch and it keeps me eating well and feeling nourished and full. Thank you for this Saadia. It is godsent
You've actually spoiled me with this granola Sadia... I will never ever get the store bought one becuase it doesn't taste half as delicous as yours.
Love all your recipes girl!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Really Love this one! My favorite! Love it all: The prepping: measuring, mixing all these beautiful ingredients and then The smell in our home while making 😍
Once made and stored it finishes rapidly and then my husband is asking all the time: when will you make this delicious granola again?
Thank you 🙏🏼
I make this every week without fail and it always disappears way too soon. Of all the PUL recipes I've made for friends, this is the one that gets the most raised eyebrows about the genius combo of dates and tahini! I recommend it to everyone. Just so fab and feel so wholesome eating it! Sets me up for the day perfectly. I actually can get away with add more oats and a little less dates ie. easily adaptable. Thank you PUL!
Literally this recipe it never disappoints. I always forget how good it is and for no good reason. Every time I rediscover this recipe feels like hitting the jackpot. Love it and if you are on the edge of making it, do it! 11/10
Making it again and aigain, sometimes i switch some of the nuts or add some Quinoa-Puffs, Cacaopowder, Chocolate... . Its my every-day-breakfast now. Thank you so much for starting my day with me, Sadia.
One of my favourite recipes ever! I always come back for this one❤️
I love this recipe! I’ve been making it regularly for over a year now. I have it for breakfast every morning sprinkled over vegan natural yoghurt and a sliced up banana.
Depending on which brand of tahini I use I sometimes have to add extra water to the tahini mix because it comes out very thick.
Enjoyed it very much, although the taste is a bit different every time I make it. But that is probably due to me and not the recipe. Lol.
Tried it and it's a killer!
Best granola ever! I usually make about 5 times the recipe and even that doesn’t last long in my house!!!
This is by far the BEST clean granola. It’s highly customizable with no added sugars or gums you often find in store brands. This is a staple in our house and something I also gift often with a nice mason jar and twine-it’s always a hit!
I make this once a week for breakfasts and snacks! Easy, delicious, nutritious!
Fantastic healthy granola recipe! Also love how easy it is to alter amounts with this new website; perfect for a granola recipe so you can make just the right amount for yourself. Love the use of dates and tahini-gives a wonderful flavor!
Best granola! I make it every week😬
Delightful! And i followed with your recipe for a smoothie bowl. OH MY! It was like healthy homemade cereal (granola) with delicious milk (fruit smoothie). Blew my mind.
By far my favorite granola recipe, I've made this one at least 10 times already and it never bores me!
Love this granola, I was looking for granola that didnt have sugar or sryup in it. Found this recipe and it was perfect. Lightly sweetened! I don't have a food processor but a Vitamix, was a little challenging to get out but it worked. Gifted some to my in-laws and they have requested more! Once I paired this granola with your chocolate chia pudding and it was great!!!
Tried this recipe for the first time yesterday and really like it. I think I needed to bake mine longer (was at the max 30 minutes), as the granola still came out a little on the softer side instead of crisp. Either that or I need to separate it onto two baking sheets. In any case, I love the tahini/date combo in replacement of the usual oil/sweetener. I can definitely see the potential in this in using other nut or seed butters in place of the tahini for a change, too.
Since you're using a food processor for this, I recommend just chopping your nuts in the food processor before making the tahini/date mixture. Makes for quick work on the nuts and a few less dishes.
Didn't have raisins so used a combo of chopped dried apricots, dried cherries, and dried blueberries. Thanks for the tip on adding the dried fruit after baking so you don't end up with little fruit rocks!
Hi, I’ve made this before and it was absolutely delicious! I wanted to make it a second time but my food processor broke. Do you think I could make the date paste with a juicer?
I have been using this recipe every few weeks for over a year with a few tweaks!!! It is truly the healthiest, clumpiest, most delicious granola I've been able to achieve :) The only changes I make are: ·Using 200g dates (rather than 175g) ·Using 1/2 cup or so less dry ingredients ·Baking for about 15-20 minutes longer than the recipe states
AMAZING. I could not Find a recipe without oils and mape syrup but then you came! Game changing 😍
Best granola recipe ever, full stop. Chunky, customisable, moderately sweet, and so easy to make! Love it with cacao powder and chocolate chips instead of raisins. Planning to apply tahini+dates mixture to all the other granola variations from PUL instead of maple syrup from now on, because you know.... these chunks! :D
Defenitely a time-consuming granola to make, but worth it all the way. I make this quite regularly as I easily eat two servings a day. In fact this is the only granola recipe I make, this is the crunchiest experience.
I made it for the first time today, it is soooo yummy!
I’ve made this granola numerous times! I love the fact it’s all whole food ingredients, and soooo healthy. Thanks for the recipe!
BEST. EVER. GRANOLA. I always end up eating half the batch as it cools down. Loving the fact that it is easy, healthy, tasty and guilt-free. I recommended this recipe to literally everyone I know. Can't and won't go back to store-bought version!
Made your Condensed coconut milk iced coffee today and enjoyed it thoroughly. Right now The granola is baking. Have made it once before and absolutely loved it. This time did not have enough dates, so I have added one ripe banana. Hope it turns out good. Thanks for the amazing recipes. The scaling up and down option is *chef's kiss*.
During the Covid 19 pandemic, I started watching your YouTube channel and I just fell in love with your channel. Thank you so much for taking the time and making such delicious meals 😋 with all of the breakdown. Anyways this was my first time ever making granola and it was great.
Again thank you so much ❤️
obsessed with this recipe, i make it so often. it’s so good, and the fact that it’s healthy and actually filling just makes it 10x better
Oh, my God!! I tried this one years ago, and I cannot stop making it!! It's so easy, so healthy and soooooo delicious!!! 🥰🥰🥰🥰
This granola is my go-to. I love that it’s only sweetened with dates, and it makes such good, delicious chunks. I top my smoothies with it, or eat pack some for work as a snack.
This is definitely one of the best and true to claim - healthiest - recipe. A game changer. Well done, PUL and team!
that's it! I'm never going back to store-bought granola. this is the best granola ever! I used a mix of peanut butter powder and peanut butter and I could not stop eating this and it had big clusters! Since then I use the date and peanut butter technique all of the time. I'm thinking of adding cacao powder and cranberries to make black forest granola. Basically, to end off, this granola never fails to impress, it's crispy, crunchy, and perfect.
I have eaten this granola every day for the last year. Not an exaggeration. I have given it as gifts on multiple occasions. I serve it to guests, and they always ask for the recipe. I cannot state how much I love this granola. I would name my first child after this granola.
It is softer than any other granola you would buy in the store, and the fact that it is sweetened by dates makes it healthy and delectable. When I eat it, I feel like I'm getting away with a crime.
I customize with whatever nuts or dried fruit I have. My current batch has cranberries, walnuts, and pecans. The standard batch lasts me two weeks, and I eat it on top of plant-yogurt or a smoothie every morning. (That's without doubling the recipe as it appears on this page.). I recommend adding a little more water to the date/tahini mixture so that it is easier manipulate.
I hope you try this recipe. If you enjoy it as much as I do, we can all name our children "PUL Healthiest Ever Granola".
When Sadia said in the video that she bets we'll finish eating the granola sooner than the 2-3 weeks it can last, I thought to myself: Yeahhh, probably not. Ate it in like a week so that's that :D
I love love love this granola recipe! I make mine with hazelnuts, pecans, and deglet dates and I swap out th sunflower seeds for some quinoa. I gave jars away as Christmas presents last year and it was very well received ☺️.
Very healthy granola but I prefer your almond mango granola more.
This has become my go-to granola recipe, I'll just switch up the nuts and dried fruit every so often to bring in some variety.
Making this Healthy granola on a regular basis !
As a nut and Treen nut allergic I I swaped a few things and it is still absolutely AMAZING !
PUL if you want to know what I swapped it with let me know I'd be happy to share :D !
So happy for this recipe and many thanks!
The idea of tahini revolutionised granola for us.
Our kids love it as well.
Nutritious and filling.
We use the pecan nut instead as they are in abundance here.
I am wondering if I can make this as a granola BAR instead ? I guess somehow make the batter little more sticky ?? Love this recipe but would be more convinient for me if it was in a bar form.
I have made this recipe like easily 10 time over the past few months. Love it!
It has made my life so easier .. I use it for breakfast everyday with yoghurt and fruits. Please keep coming up with such easy, healthy and tasty recipe. You are doing great work! Love you ..
Thank you so much for this recipe! I mistakenly overlooked the ingredients prior to purchasing them at the store and now I have roasted nuts & seeds.... How should I go about modifying the recipe to use the roasted nuts/seeds?
Based on the recipe, it seems that during the baking process the raw nuts/seeds get roasted while the liquid in the granola mixture evaporates, leaving behind beautiful granola clusters.
Can I use normal rolled oats(more processed) instead of old fashioned ones?
I love this granola! It’s a staple in my house and I always make a double batch. I gave this recipe to my daughter and a friend and they also make it regularly. A keeper for sure!
This absolutely delicious! I am going to make it over and over again. Thank you so much for a recipe that I could easily follow.
I started making this around April last year and believe it or not, I’m still making it now! Never ever bought tahini and dates in my life prior to trying this recipe. I also bought a food processor for this haha.
In my case, use dried cranberries as a substitute for raisins. If I’m feeling a little 😈, I add just a little bit of vanilla sugar before serving to make it more dessert-y! Still better than going for a sugary cake I think! :)
I make this literally every fortnight now😂😂
Perfect!!! awesome recipe!!
I've reached a point where I don't even know how many times I have made this because it is A LOT! It's easily become my absolute favorite breakfast.
The best granola I've ever made! Thank you soo, so much for this recipe. <3 I'm in love with PickUpLimes team! :)))))
Big hugs from Serbia!
Your new website is insane! Love it!
Have a question about how hard the texture should be at the end? Mine seems to be a little soft, perhaps I should have used two baking sheets and let it spread out better?
I left it in the oven for about double the time prescribed.
It was my first time here,n made this super easy granola.....me n my family loved it.
Now looking for another easy veg dishes
Love the healthy recipe. I saw you had another granola using brown sugar. Have you ever experimented w date sugar? On this one, I am confused though, why are you using raw nuts but roasted seeds? Does raw vs roasted matter here?
This is buy far the best granola I've ever made! I've made it hundreds of times and it is sooo good every time! It has the perfect balance of sweetness with a wide variety of nuts and seeds. And the tahini and date mixture makes the best combo! I've sent the recipe to so many people and they all loved it. 100% recommended!
Made this with sunflower seed butter instead of tahini and dried cranberries instead of raisins. I absolutely love this recipe! Delicious and so much cheaper to make at home. Your recipes are a perfect balance of tasty and healthy!
Sadia, your new website is incredible!! I can't believe the new functions....changing the number of servings in a click, all of the nutritional info... Ahhh-mazing. Now I love your site even more. Thanks so much for this brilliant plant-based resource x
Really excited to try this recipe. However, I only have deglet noor dates. Would it still work? Thank you! Really love your recipes!
Hi PUL team, I have a silly question about the dates in this recipe. There is the little star comment saying "If dry, soak in warm water until softened, drain." Does it mean that I can use dried dates? (Maybe it's just my English that's lacking here, so if that's the case, I am sorry). Also, it is a rule that Medjool dates are always sold as a fresh fruit rather than dried fruit? I finally found Medjool dates on one website (Amazon would be very inconvenient for my location), but they are under the section of "dried fruit". There is a mention of them being "sun dried". I am really confused, please help me, I really want to make this recipe work. Love you, Anna.
My favourite granola!! Made it 3 times so far :-)
