Healthy Turmeric Tahini Cranberry Granola

Granola

Turmeric, Tahini and Cranberry granola, your new favorite homemade granola perfect for fall.

This crunchy granola is loaded with spice from the turmeric and ginger, a hint of tartness from the dried cranberries and a nutty crunch from the cashews and pistachios. Above all it is low in sugar and the perfect healthy addition to breakfast or dessert.

I was inspired for this recipe from my Better Home and Gardens magazine where Nik Sharma featured a spiced papaya cranberry granola recipe. I love the unique balance of flavors and I used my favorite tahini from Soom foods https://amzn.to/2M41Fnp that just creates the perfect balance to the cranberries and spices.

On another note today is World Mental Health awareness day and as a person who has struggled with depression and anxiety since I was young I really encourage everyone to treat there mental wellness. Make it an important part of your daily routine just like brushing your teeth. Say hello to a stranger, smile or give someone a huge you never know what these small acts can do for someone. I am so grateful for you all and can’t thank you enough for letting me share my passion with you.
