This homemade granola is miles ahead of anything you could buy off the shelf. Tahini and cardamom are the wildcard ingredients here, adding savory depth to balance out the sweetness of the maple syrup. With each successive stir, the tahini mixture fully coats the oats and works its way into the nooks and crannies of the walnuts, creating ultra toasty, delightfully sweet nuggets of crunchy goodness. Packed with heart-healthy fats and fiber, this granola is great stirred into yogurt with fresh berries or simply enjoyed plain by the handful.
