Honey Tahini Granola With Chocolate Chips
This healthy honey tahini granola recipe is packed with delicious ingredients like walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and chocolate chips. It’s so easy to make and is just perfect for breakfast!
This honey tahini granola recipe is inspired by one of the most popular recipes on my blog – these honey tahini oatmeal cookies!
I took that recipe and changed things around a little to make the most delicious homemade granola. It’s SO easy to do and packs so much flavour into your breakfast.
Plus, it’s made with only 9 simple, healthy ingredients – many of which you may already have on hand.
I’ve made this chunky granola recipe twice this week and seriously can’t stop snacking on it. I hope you love it as much as I do!
Honey Tahini Granola Ingredients
All you need for this easy granola recipe are 9 simple ingredients:
- tahini paste
- vanilla extract
- coconut oil
- rolled oats
- raw walnuts
- raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
- chocolate chips (dark or semi-sweet)
Is Granola Gluten-Free?
Not all granola is gluten-free, but this recipe can easily be made gluten-free!
None of the ingredients in this recipe naturally contain gluten, but sometimes they will be processed in factories that do make gluten-containing products.
If you need to follow a strict gluten-free diet, simply make sure that the oats and other ingredients you purchase are certified gluten-free. This will be indicated on the packaging!
How To Make Tahini Granola
Have you tried making granola at home before? It’s actually so easy to do and makes your kitchen smell AMAZING!
Start by heating your oven to 325F. Then, line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (tahini, honey, vanilla, melted coconut oil).
In a separate large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (oats, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, salt).
Do NOT include the chocolate chips here.
Then, combine the wet and dry ingredients and stir together well.
Take this mixture and spread it flat onto the lined baking sheet. You can press down with a spoon, spatula, or your hands.
Pop the baking sheet in the oven for 20 minutes, rotating the sheet halfway for even cooking. In the last 5 or so minutes, be sure to keep a close eye on the granola to make sure it doesn’t burn.
Remove the granola from the oven and let it cool for at least 20 minutes.
Once cool, break the granola up with your hands into large chunks (as desired). Stir in the chocolate chips and enjoy or store for later!
How To Store Homemade Granola
This tahini granola should be stored in airtight containers or jars. You can keep it at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. I doubt it’ll last that long though 😉

This granola is so good that even my dad who doesn’t like oats has been eating it straight from the jar, lol! Yummy and healthy, I absolutely love it.
Hi Julia! I’m so happy to hear this!!! I can so relate to your dad – I’ve eaten more of it straight out of the jar than paired with an actual meal haha. Thank you so much for sharing your experience 🙂
Honestly tried the recipe to finish the Tahini jar I had at home. The recipe was so quick and easy to assemble. I did leave the granola in the oven for another 10 minutes and just switched off the oven temperature. I loved the crunchy texture and the nutty taste, using as topping to my yogurt granola daily! Making a new batch this weekend!
Thank you so much for sharing your experience – I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed this one!! Glad you decided to use up that jar of tahini with this recipe ;). I hope you enjoy the next batch this weekend – have a great one!
This is my favourite granola recipe to date!! The tahini and honey pair so well together and make such a cluster-filled crunchy treat. Have made this recipe dozens of times and everyone in my household loves it!
Ah thank you so much, Scarlet!! I’m so honoured to hear that this is your favourite granola recipe – that means the world! If you haven’t tried the honey tahini cookies, I highly recommend those too haha 😉
This was awesome! I had never tried making granola before and was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was. Omitted the chocolate chips because I forgot to buy some, still delicious.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience! It’s so appreciated. I’m so happy that your first time making granola was a success!! I’m honoured you tried this recipe to do so :). Isn’t is so easy? Not to mention how good it makes your kitchen smell, haha. Happy to hear it worked without the chocolate chips, too!
My go to recipe for granola. Can never go wrong with this one! I just baked double the recipe to work through 2 weeks of sheer goodness! Thank you!
Hi Fatima! Yay I’m so happy to hear that! Thank you so much for sharing. Love the double batch to have this on hand for longer 😉
This recipe is ridiculously easy, and absolutely delicious! I have a child with a peanut allergy, so I often experiment with other nuts and seed butters. This recipe tastes so much like peanut butter- a flavour I have been missing for years. This is my new go-to, above all of the others I’ve been making over the years. 10/10 from me!
Hi Tara! Thank you so much for the lovely review. So happy to hear that you’re able to enjoy this recipe and get that peanut butter type flavour. That’s so great to hear!! I can only imagine how much I’d miss being able to eat peanut butter, too!
PS – I have this recipe in an oatmeal cookie version if you’re interested in that 🙂
Although I am no longer on Insta, I always come back to Carries site for the yummy granola! Just made a double batch for the week ahead- its my favorite healthy quick and flavorful recipe!
Hi Fatima! Aw thank you so much for continuing to enjoy this granola recipe – I love hearing that 🙂
I see that you’re no longer on instagram – if you’re interested in keeping up with all the new recipes I share, I just wanted to let you know that I do have an email list where I send a short email every time a new recipe goes live!! You can sign up here if you want to (no pressure though!!)
Wow! I just finished baking this granola and cannot stop nibbling at the edges. I’ve made many granolas over the years and this one may very well be my fave. I didn’t use any coconut oil and it is still crispy and delicious. Tahini has become a staple in our whole foods/plant-based kitchen. Thank you and can’t wait to top my overnight oats with this tomorrow.
Hi Kristy! Aw thank you so much for the kind comment!! So happy to hear that you enjoyed this one and am so flattered to hear it’s one of your favourites. Hope you enjoy it all week!! 🙂
