Tahini, Pecan & Buckwheat Granola

Granola is this incredible nutritious, delicious and versatile mix of basically whatever oats, grains, nuts, seeds, oils, sweetner, spices and fruits you like.

There isn't any wonder are supermarket shelves are full of hundreds of varieties and growing fast, some come with a serious price tag too! Done be fooled, granola is easy, forgiving and does not have to cost the earth.

I have a few variations on here, this version being my latest love, but please do adapt them as you wish. Don't have pecans use almonds, don't like tahini use peanut butter, love dates add them, not keen on maple use rice syrup or if you're not vegan honey. Just have fun!
