Hello my friends & happy Tuesday! I had this post ready to roll yesterday and forgot to hit publish. So let’s start out today with a fun twist on a classic recipe. I’ve been up since 4a and got my run in, volunteered at my local polling place (we have voting today) and got 3 recipes prepped and packaged for a client. Can you say PRODUCTIVE? Ha. Rare but all good.
So let me focus. I love making granola to stash in my pantry and for clients. It’s nutrient-dense, protein-packed and low in sugar versus grocery store options. We love it on top of muffins we bake, for a yogurt topper or for ice cream. My husband keeps a baggie in his office for when he needs a snack. It’s just good food, fast.
Let me share a bit about tahini if you aren’t familiar. Tahini has the texture and consistency of a creamy nut butter. It’s made from sesame seeds, similar to nut butter but without nuts. Rich in magnesium, potassium and iron. Great source of calcium. High in vitamin E, B1, B2, B3, B5 and B15. It has a high alkaline content. Packed with healthy fats. Easily digestible.
This recipe is for those seeking easy food that is healthy and good for you. You can add in what you need or remove what you don’t… its a very forgiving recipe. Also perfect for a teacher or hostess gift wrapped up in a Ball glass jar. Just an idea. Okay… let’s get on to the recipe.
