INSTRUCTIONS

Using the bottom of a one cup (250 ml) dry measure cup, crush the nuts by evenly placing them on a cutting board and pressing down on the cup measure, breaking the nuts up. Repeat until all nuts are crushed.

Mix the nuts together in a medium bowl.Combine vanilla, cardamom, salt, maple syrup, and tahini together and mix well. Pour the mixture over the nuts and combine until the nuts are evenly coated. Transfer the nuts to a parchment lined baking sheet, and spread the mixture evenly over the baking pan.

Bake at 300 for 30-35 min or until golden brown, rotating and tossing the granola every 10 min.   

When nuts are golden brown, and toasted, remove from oven, and let cool completely on a cooling rack. Transfer to a air tight container when granola is completely cooled. Should last for around 1 month in airtight container.
