How to make savory granola

Sweet or savory, making granola is easy! All you need is one bowl, a baking sheet, and a few simple ingredients. The best part is that you can customize it any way you like.
In this batch I used pumpkin, hemp, sunflower, sesame, cumin and coriander seeds, oats, tahini paste, maple syrup, chili, smoked paprika and a little salt [ see the exact measurements and recipe below ].
You can add any of your favorite seeds, nuts and spices. If you give it a try let me know what ingredients you used.
Just mix all the ingredients in a bowl, pour onto a lined baking tray, and roast it in the oven, for 15 – 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Let cool completely, and store in a glass jar until ready to use. That’s it!
