nut, tahini and chocolate granola

Enough to make 1 large jar

200g rolled oats
120g dark chocolate chips
5 tbsp cashew nuts, roughly chopped (about 50g)
5 tbsp  flax seeds
5 tbsp whole almonds or pistachio, roughly chopped (about 50g)
5 tbsp unsweetened flaked coconut
6 tbsp honey or maple syrup+ 2 tbsp for drizzling
4 tbsp tahini + 2 tbsp for drizzling
1 large handful dried figs, chopped

Preheat oven to 180ºC. Line a large baking tray with greaseproof/ baking parchment.

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the figs. Mix everything together until the oat and nuts are completely coated with the honey and tahini. Spread the granola on a single layer onto the prepared tray. Drizzle with the extra honey and tahini. Bake for 10 minutes  or until golden. Stir the mixture to make sure it is evenly baked. Bake for an extra 4 to 6 minutes until golden.

Add the chopped figs. Leave to cool completely before transfering to an airtight jar.  It will keep for a couple of weeks and is great served with milk at breakfast or as a topping with yogurt.
