Asian Sesame Vanilla Granola Recipe

Earnest Eats Header

As stereotypical vegan as it may be, I love having granola for breakfast. I feel like granola is a step up from sugar-filled cereals, but certainly can have problems of its own. This is why making your own granola can be rewarding in more than one way; you get a nutrient-dense treat that is just how you want it.

Now, it’s almost embarrassing how easy this recipe is, but I have to tell you, it is SO good. The main component of this granola recipe is Earnest Eats Asia Blend Hot & Fit Cereal; this blend of superfood grains is wheat-free, unsweetened, non-GMO verified and filled with almonds, dried mango, a blend of seeds, matcha green tea and cinnamon. So many awesome ingredients, and because it’s unsweetened you can adjust that to your liking.

The second star of this recipe is Simply Sesame’s Vanilla Tahini with Almond Bits! In standard granola recipes people using use butter or oil as a binder, but this tahini is a huge step up from that taste-wise and nutritionally. When you bring this together with the hot cereal, maple syrup and pinch of salt you get this great flavor of sweet sesame, plus surprise chunks of dried mango and the crunch of all of the seeds and grains.

It’s important to mention that in one small serving of this awesome granola, you’ll find roughly 12% of your recommended DV of Iron, 7% Calcium, 6 grams Protein and more awesome nutrition facts. Pair this granola with some non-dairy milk or your favorite vegan yogurt to start your day off right. Beware: you’ll be making a second batch before you know it!
