Tahini & Coconut Granola

Toddler Friendly Tahini & Coconut Granola

We ate granola everyday while on vacation, so of course I needed to make it as soon as we got home! Making homemade granola is so easy and you can customise is anyway you like; switch up the nuts/seeds or add in raisins if you like it sweeter. There are so many possibilities! This is delicious served with yoghurt and fresh fruit.
