This granola combines the savoriness of olive oil and walnuts with the soft floral flavors of saffron in a warm maple tahini combo. It’s the perfect granola for transitioning into autumn and grounding down with foods such as oats and nuts.


2 cup rolled oats

½ cup walnuts

½ cup sunflower seeds

⅓ cup olive oil

⅓ cup tahini

⅓ cup maple syrup

2 tablespoons Saffron Latte Wellness Powder

1 teaspoon sea salt


1 | Preheat oven to 300F.

2 | Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

3 | Combine oats, walnuts, and sunflower seeds in a bowl. Mix together. Set aside.

4 | In a separate bowl, combine olive oil, tahini, maple syrup, Saffron Latte Wellness Powder, and salt. Whisk until smooth and combined.

5 | Pour wet ingredients into oat mixture. Stir until fully mixed through.

6 | Spread granola mixture out on a baking sheet and press down into the pan gently.

7 | Bake at 300F for 20 minutes, making sure to move granola around pan halfway through. 

8 | Let it cool and harden for at least half an hour without touching. (Preferably several hours.) It will crisp up as it dries. 

*Yields 3 cups.
